Dates, times and titles may vary by location. Call your local Cinemark for exact details.

The film lineup includes: Paddington Bear, Alvin & the Chipmunks, Snoopy, Pan, BoxTrolls, Sandlot, Norm of the North and more.

If there’s a Visa Signature credit card in your wallet, here’s a way to save money on movies. Through Friday, August 21, cardholders can get 2-for-1 movie tickets from Fandango (up to $19.50, including Fandango’s convenience fee) every Friday. The offer is only valid for the same showing on each respective Friday with no advance purchases allowed. If you have a Chase Visa Signature Card, you can buy your tickets for Friday starting on Wednesday.

If previous years are any indication, the limited number of weekly tickets sells out quickly (especially during the summer months) – so plan ahead. Finally, there’s a limit of one FREE ticket per 30-day period, per credit card. Remember, you must use a Visa Signature credit card to make your purchase.
