The film distributor Constantin Film Holding GmbH was founded in Austria in 1951. A second mainstay was created at the end of the 1960's in the segment of cine operations. In this segment, 25 traditional cinemas and cinema centres were operated until the beginning of the 1990's and, following a structural change, the Cineplexx Cine Operations GmbH, a subsidiary company of the Constantin Film Holding GmbH, was founded in 1993. The business developed during a time when many traditional cinemas in Austria were disappearing and multiplex movie theatres were conquering the market. Constantin Film reacted to this trend by establishing a group of 19 cinemas and 153 screens in Austria. Additionally, traditional movie theatres with up to 18 halls existed.
In 2009, the Cineplexx INTERNATIONAL GmbH started expanding to Austria's neighbouring countries and the first cinema outside Austria was opened in Bolzano, South Tyrol. Cineplexx also took over a cinema in Zagreb’s city centre, thus laying the foundation for expansion into Croatia. Further Cineplexx cinemas followed since 2011 in Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia. In 2013 Cineplexx established its first five multiplex movie theatres in Slovenia and the first seven-hall cinema in Albania. In Spring 2014 Cineplexx opened the biggest cinema in Serbia (Usce Shopping Center, Belgrade, with 11 halls and over 2.000 seats). The last expansion took place in December 2018 with the opening of a second cinema in QTU Tirana, Albania.
Three years after its market entry in Kosovo the leading Austrian cinema operator Cineplexx has opened a brand new multiplex in Prizren.
