Shares of Cinemark Holdings Inc. CNK, +8.22% fell 2.1% in premarket trading Friday, after the movie theater chain reported a wider-than-expected third-quarter loss although revenue topped forecasts, as a beat in concessions revenue offset a miss in admissions.

Admission revenue grew 15-fold to $225.5 million, just below the FactSet consensus of $226.1 million, while concession revenue increased 18-fold to $164.3 million to beat expectations of $156.9 million. “As the pandemic further subsides, we remain confident in the future of theatrical moviegoing based on the unparalleled cinematic experience it provides coupled with a robust content lineup in the fourth quarter and beyond that features highly anticipated films with something for everyone,” said Chief Executive Mark Zoradi. The stock has rallied 33.2% over the past three months through Thursday while the S&P 500 SPX, +0.37% has gained 5.7%.
