Buying movie tickets has never been this convenient

Watching movies is one of the things that I love to do whenever I feel the need to de-stress or simply for pastime. Believe it or not, I can even watch a movie alone. Loner as I may seem, but I'm actually enjoying it.

Anyway, what I don't love about watching a movie in a cinema is falling in line to get tickets. Nowadays, (thanks to technology) movie houses offer a more convenient way of checking the movie schedule or buying tickets through websites and mobile app. Just imagine the hassle you'll get through just to get tickets to a much-awaited film, right? 



During the last MMFF, I already anticipated a huge crowd will be watching the entries last year. I badly wanted to see 'Ang Larawan' and knowing that only limited cinemas are showing the film, I checked the schedule first online and the available cinema nearest my place is SM City East Ortigas. 

The SM Cinema app saved me much time and effort because I was able to buy my ticket while on my way to the mall. I didn't have to worry about wasting my time queueing just to get my ticket anymore and I was able to do my errands while waiting for the movie to start. Convenient!



Just a reminder though, you still need to get your ticket printed at the ticket booth because they aren't accepting e-ticket upon entrance yet (I hope they implement this feature soon!). 

So if you're just like me, then you better go ahead and try this app the next time you're watching a movie!
