Optional Features of a movie theater ticket kiosk

These kiosks are most often seen in event halls and movie theaters but can go anywhere a ticket needs to be sold. Here are some of the specific capabilities you might see on interactive ticket kiosks:

  • Card reader
  • Ticket scanner
  • Ticket and receipt printer
  • A touch screen interface
  • Stereo speakers

How ticket kiosks help patrons at the movie theater

You walk into the theater and see that the next showing of the movie you want is in ten minutes!  So, normally in this scenario, you will be likely to miss the start of the movie and then be lost for the entire duration of this ‘award winning film’. With a ticketing kiosk customers will be thrilled to avoid the bottleneck of the ticket booth and get on with the show!

I’m late and need to buy my movie tickets right away

No problem. The ticket kiosk interface is easy to understand and navigate, even for first time users. The screen presented to the user will vary based upon the movie theater software or system in place but will essentially all serve up the same options.

The movie ticket software platform displayed on the ticket kiosk will allow the customer to:

  • Select a movie
  • Select a showtime
  • Select a seat (if assigned seating)
  • Swipe, pay and print!

For those patrons that already bought tickets ahead of time online or with their smartphone. The ticket kiosk will associate the tickets with the credit card used to make the purchase. The user will indicate that they are just picking up movie tickets, swipe and print!

In either case, the customer is quickly on their way with plenty of time left to hit the snack bar!

 

Maximize ROI while improving customer satisfaction

As the movie theater industry is rapidly adopting self service ticket kiosk technology, theater owners are finding more ways to maximize their use and interact with other existing programs such as customer loyalty rewards, gift certificates and more.

By finding more ways to utilize the ticket kiosks, customer engagement goes up and the benefit of the self service investment continues to grow as well.
