Moviegoers can download studio-recorded Spanish audio tracks via myLINGO for select films showing on Cinemark’s screens. Once inside the auditorium, the user's smartphone captures the movie audio and the myLINGO app technology synchs perfectly to the action playing on the screen. Using their own headphones, customers are able to hear the movie dubbed in Spanish and enjoy the experience alongside their English-speaking family members and friends. The app is designed to operate without disturbing surrounding guests in the auditorium. While the movie plays, myLINGO signals the smartphone screen to darken and disables the audio and video recording functions. Currently, myLINGO offers film titles exclusively in Spanish and will be expanding to include other languages in the near future.
“Growing up as first-generation Americans in a Polish-speaking home, my
brother and I never went to the movies with our parents as they had
difficulty following the on-screen dialogue,” stated
“Cinemark is dedicated to creating a fun, authentic and inclusive
entertainment experience for all of our guests," explained
At this time, the app can be downloaded on iPhone smartphones. Plans for the Android version of the app are underway. Movie titles currently available on the myLINGO app include "Magnificent Seven," "Jack Reacher" and "Inferno." Upcoming movies that will be available include "Dr. Strange," "Moana," "Rogue One" and "Passengers."
