PLANO, Texas -- April 8, 2013

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CNK), one of the world’s largest motion picture
exhibitors, is pleased to announce the final film in the Best Picture Classic
Series. The 1972 Academy Award Winner for Best Motion Picture, THE GODFATHER,
will play in over 120 Cinemark theatres across the country, including on the
Cinemark XD - Extreme Digital Cinema screens where available. Ranked #2 on the
2007 American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest Movies of All Time, the film is
scheduled to play on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, at two separate show times,
2pm and 7pm.

"There is no greater iconic film than 'The Godfather,' states James Meredith,
VP, Head of Marketing and Communications at Cinemark. “It has set the standard
for story-telling, launched a generation of great actors, and provided
movie-goers an unparalleled experience.”

“The Godfather,” Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Marlon
Brando in his Oscar©-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family.
Director Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and
near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the
Corleone's family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged.
Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel and featuring career-making
performances by Al Pacino, James Cann and Robert Duvall, this searing and
brilliant film garnered eleven Academy Award® nominations, and won three
including Best Picture in 1972. It is considered by many to be one of the
greatest American films ever made. Cinemark will show the 40th Anniversary
restoration version of the film, which is rated R by the MPAA.

Cinemark is also pleased to announce that the next set of Classic Series films
will feature four diverse and groundbreaking films. All Classics will show at
2pm and 7pm on the following days:

April 24:    Raging Bull (1980)        R
May 1:          The Graduate (1967)          PG
May 8:          Alien (1979)                 R
May 15:         Blazing Saddles (1974)       R
                                             

“Four very distinctive directors are showcased in this round of classic
films,” Meredith adds. “From Martin Scorsese and Mike Nichols to Ridley Scott
and Mel Brooks, you cannot find four other directors who bring unparalleled
styles to both the visual and acting aspects of their movies.”
