Online merchant Fandango has signed deals to sell tickets for some of the nation’s oldest movie theaters.

The company said Monday that it has signed new deals with seven exhibitors including Bow Tie Cinemas and TCL Chinese Theatres.

The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, first opened in 1927, is home to the world’s largest Imax theater.

Bow Tie Cinemas was founded in 1900 and says it’s the oldest theater chain in the country. It’s also the eighth largest in the U.S., with 59 locations and 420 screens, including New York’s Chelsea Cinemas and the Ziegfeld Theater.

Other newly added chains include Classic Cinemas, Megaplex Theatres, UltraStar Cinemas, Dipson Theaters and Cinepoli.
