Second-quarter hits negative $3.9 mil

Cinemark USA, a Plano, Texas-based exhibitor that has been expanding its 2,800-plus screen circuit with stadium-seating multiplexes worldwide, on Monday posted a broadened second-quarter loss of $3.9 million, compared with red ink of $320,000 in the same period last year.
