San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – The market for online movie tickets has over the years, revolutionized the concept of traditional ticket booking, and has today entwined itself with modern culture, influencing ticket purchasing habits of consumers. The increasing adoption of a digitally based lifestyle by majority of consumers, created a new genre of audience called 'net generation' that will pump plenty of demand into online and mobile formats. Online ticketing services bring home the luxury of booking latest movies right at the desktop. Today, online movie booking has become an international trend driven by the fact that more people globally are increasingly familiar with booking their movie tickets online. Buying movie tickets online offers numerous benefits in the form of advance ticket purchases for hot new movies, avoiding serpentine queues at box offices, and printing tickets from the convenience of home. The global cinema industry has experienced drastic growth over the past decade both in terms of box office revenues and admissions. Patrons have also witnessed dramatic changes in the form of expansion of theaters chains, creation of multiplexes and megaplexes that accommodate more screens. Also, more number of movies are being released now than ever before, giving consumers greater choices and reasons for frequent viewing.
Today, all filmed entertainment content can be produced digitally. While digital projection technology results in a rich visual experience for consumers, digital content allows the theatre operator improved flexibility in programming content. Digital technology will provide theatre operators with an opportunity for additional revenues through 3D and alternative content offerings. Also, theatre operators will be in a better position to address capacity utilization issues and meet demand at theatres by real-time decision making on the size and number of auditoriums to program with content. Digital 3D screens have also attracted increased audience and rise in average ticket prices. For instance, theatres charge up to $5 extra per ticket for a 3D film than for a traditional 2D film. Globally, the number of digital 3D screens increased by a tremendous margin in 2010 to reach a figure of over 22,000 screens, which represented a whopping 63% of all theater screens. Theater owners have launched video programming, audio programming, and information through kiosks in order to keep movie buffs entertained and informed at the theater.
