Cinemark To Screen Live Broadcast Of 12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief

The star-filled concert will be widely shown on TV and streamed online — but this should provide an opportunity for fans who don’t have a ticket to the Madison Square Garden event to enjoy a communal experience with immersive video and sound. National CineMedia will provide a feed of the 12-12-12 benefit over its Digital Broadcast Network to more than 200 Cinemark, Century and Tinseltown theaters.

The concert will feature Alicia Keys, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Kanye West, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Paul McCartney.
