PLANO, Tx (BRPROUD) – Cinemark and ESPN have partnered together to bring college football to the big screen.

“We are thrilled to offer an incredible opportunity for college football fans to gather and cheer on their teams in our immersive auditoriums with larger-than-life screens and surround sound,” Cinemark SVP Global Content Justin McDaniel said in a press release.

Fans can watch the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl and the College Football Playoff National Championship at select Cinemark theaters.

Those who want to see the games in theaters can reserve seating when a $10 concessions package is purchased. Tickets are on sale now.

Unfortunately, no theater in Louisiana is on the participating theaters’ list but there are various participating locations across the South.

To purchase concessions packages, visit the Cinemark website or the Cinemark mobile app.

“This collaboration with ESPN brings together the best in college football and exhibition for a one-of-a-kind viewing experience that will make people feel like they are part of the on-field action,” McDaniels said.
