"Onward!" by Kevin Hart, in which he plays himself, has been a surprise hit on the online movie ticketing system. Online movie ticketing has come of age and now is truly becoming the favorite way to see a movie and to reserve a theater.
The reason for the success is simply this: The Movie Onward uses an established system called a carousel. Movie tickets for all the movies are usually released online at midnight, which is only four hours after the first show time at a theater. The Movie Onward release contains over two dozen different movies which are shown in different cities across the United States.
The carousel works like this: It is a rotating system which shows the movies to customers as they fill up their seats in the theater. Customers receive a movie code on their receipt or email when they get to the theater. Customers are also able to place orders for each movie right online. Customers can also choose to buy the tickets in advance by purchasing them with a credit card or using a debit card to purchase them at the box office.
When customers go to the Movie Onward website, they can book their seats online for that day and they can see the full line up of the movies they want to see. They can also see the time and date of the opening and close of the theater and can pick which movie they want to see. They can also put in the seat location and number so that the next customer that buys a ticket from them can pick up the ticket.
In addition to customers picking the seat location, they can also pick the movie they want to see through the carousel. The Carousel operates in a similar way to a normal conveyor belt where customers use the app on their phone to put in the movie codes and pick out which movie they want to see. The movies are separated into sections, so the movie clerk knows where the customers are looking for the seats. Cars for each carousel can be purchased and placed into the carousel of the section that the customer wants to see. Customers who want to see a more obscure movie that they have never heard of can place in their order. At the end of the carousel, a movie is automatically pulled from the order and the clerk checks the ticket and deals with the customer. The theater staff knows where the customer is looking and how many people are waiting for their turn to see the movie.
The Movie Onward movie tickets are sold online with the customer purchasing them online. Customers need not wait for the movie at the movie theater and can see the movie instantly. This is because online orders are processed immediately at the time of purchase and are often even filled faster than an in-theater order. Online ordering is convenient for customers and saves them the trouble of going to the theater, parking their car, running to the movie theater and running back to their car.
To see the movie online, is to experience the convenience and the appeal of on-line movie tickets. If you want to watch your favorite movies but you can't make it to the theater, you will be happy to know that there is always another opportunity to see your favorite movie.
