Cinemark Screening Netflix’s ‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ in Select Theaters

Cinemark Theatres has quietly begun screening The Christmas Chronicles 2, the Netflix movie sequel to the 2018 original that saw 20 million subscribers stream the Kurt Russell-starring holiday fare in its first week of release.

Netflix will begin streaming the sequel on Nov. 25 as part of an agreement with Cinemark, which recently inked a PVOD deal with Universal Pictures in exchange for allowing the studio to abbreviate the theatrical window to 17 days on select movies.

The 1-hour-51-minute adventure family comedy sequel — which is playing in select theaters in Dallas, San Francisco and Los Angeles, again features Russell as a brash-talking (and singing) Santa Claus, with real-life partner Goldie Hawn playing Mrs. Claus in a more prominent role.

“In light of the current operating environment, we are making near-term booking decisions on a film-by-film basis,” the the nation’s third-largest movie theater chain said in a statement. “We are pleased to collaborate with Netflix on this limited three-market test.”
