It said revenues in the 26 weeks to June 27 in the core Cineworld Cinemas brand were up 10.5% while the Picturehouse chain it bought in December, including the Belmont in Aberdeen and Cameo in Edinburgh, was 12.5% ahead. Overall group revenue at the UK's biggest cinema operator was up 21.9%, from £165.4 million to £201.6m.
Box office takings at Cineworld Cinemas, which has almost 80 screens across Scotland, showed a 10.5% increase from £118.6m to £131m while average ticket prices grew 4.7% from £5.15 to £5.39.
There were 24 3D films released in the period and those were responsible for 30.5% of box office takings in the half-year, up from 18.5% across 28 released in 2012.
Cineworld said: "Film studios are becoming increasingly adept in discerning the genre and target audience of 3D films and the quality of 3D film product remains critical."
The film adaptation of Les Miserables was named as the best performer in the period with superhero sequel Iron Man 3, animated film The Croods and science-fiction action film Star Trek Into Darkness also popular.
Retail revenues in Cineworld Cinemas was said to be 9.7% higher with spend per person up from £1.65 to £1.72 which the company attributed to the expansion of its offering including the opening of Starbucks coffee shops.
Box office takings at Picturehouse grew from £9.1m to £9.9m helped by slightly higher average ticket prices and greater occupancy.
Along with Les Miserables popular titles at Picturehouse included literary adaptation The Great Gatsby and Oscar winners such as Django Unchained, Lincoln and Argo.
Bar, cafe and restaurant takings are now said to account for 24.5% of Picturehouse turnover.
Analysts at Panmure Gordon said forecasts of full-year pre-tax profit at Cineworld of around £46m were unlikely to change.
They said: "Films at the start of [quarter three] have performed in line with expectations and the group is on track with its plans for the year."
However, they kept a sell rating on the stock as they believe 2013 will be the weakest year for cinema admissions since 2008.
Wayne Brown, from Canaccord Genuity, was more upbeat and said: "A strong [first half], leading indicators pointing in the right direction and strong film slate suggest a high degree of confidence in forecasts.
"The shares have been strong performers but if one takes a longer term view there remains meaningful potential upside."
In March, Cineworld won a 10-year tender contract to operate the Imax screen at the Glasgow Science centre.
Redevelopment work there is expected to be completed later this month and the facility reopened.
Cineworld said: "We will offer a broader range of IMAX feature films as well as working closely with the GSC to enhance their educational IMAX offering."
A 14-screen cinema forming part of the extension at the Silverburn shopping mall is also on schedule to open in 2015 adding to its sites in Glasgow city centre, the tallest cinema in the world, and at Parkhead.
It also has two Cineworld Cinemas complexes in Aberdeen plus premises in Edinburgh, Falkirk and Dundee.
Cineworld chief executive Stephen Wiener said the business should benefit from a strong line-up of films in the third quarter -including The Wolverine, Monsters University and Despicable Me 2 -plus weaker comparable figures due to the impact of the London Olympics in 2012.
However he warned fourth quarter targets would be harder to hit because of the success of the James Bond film Skyfall in 2012.
