Must Read

Alejandro Ramirez, Global CEO of Cinepolis has received The National Order of the Legion of Honor, an award by the French governmen at Cannes 2014. The award recognises an individual’s honourable service to the country.

Alejandro Ramirez, an economist by profession, was recognised for his contribution to the promotion of French Cinema through programs like the French Film Tour, a traveling film festival that showcases a selection of recent French films at Cinepolis cinemas around Mexico prior to their commercial release. The festival line-up aims to give Mexican audiences the chance to discover French cinema’s latest offerings, focussing on high quality productions from a range of genres.

Speaking on the occasion, Ramirez, CEO, Cinépolis (Global), said: “It’s a great honour to receive this award from the French government because I am very fond of culture and thought in this country. Since childhood I have been a lover of French culture and literature, and in recent years also of French cinema. Almost two decades ago, we started this adventure of French Film Tour. It has allowed us to carry this film to almost two million Mexicans, whereas 10 or 15 years ago if we remember, there were very few cities that could enjoy it, so it’s a great honour.”

Cinepolis, the first international cinema exhibitor in India and fourth largest exhibition circuit in the world, has announced aggressive expansion plans for South India. It is currently present in 13 cities in India and operates approximately 84 screens. Cinepolis India is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinepolis. The company started its operations in India in 2009 at Amritsar. It currently operates 84 screens in the country and plans 400 screens pan India by 2017.

Cinepolis claims to be the world’s fourth largest movie theater circuit, operating more than 3,000 screens in 11 countries and serving more than 116 million patrons annually. Founded in 1971 and privately held, Cinepolis is headquartered in Morelia, Mexico.
