With the summer blockbuster season in full effect, getting your movie tickets is becoming increasingly painful with lineups and sold out shows at almost every theater. If you take the few minuets and download the Cineplex Odeon app for your BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook, not only will you get access to movie trailers and show times, but you’ll also be able to purchase movie tickets and skip the box office. One of the coolest features is if you decide to take the opportunity to buy your tickets on the phone, all you need to do is take your BlackBerry to the theater and put it under the barcode reader to out prints your tickets. With no extra fees, getting your tickets on your mobile device saves the headaches and ensures that you get to the movie without it being sold out.
The PlayBook and handled versions are almost identical, with both allowing you to watch trailers, buy tickets, and check your Scene Card balance. While I’ve been using both the apps since they’ve launched, I have found that the PlayBook version is better suited for the planning stages, and the phone is best for the action stage. What I mean is that you’ll want to use your PlayBook (if you have one) to find the movie, watch a trailer or find a theater. After you’ve accomplished this, you’ll want to pick up your BlackBerry smartphone and buy those tickets, all while collecting those valuable Scene points. If you’re an avid moviegoer or you just watch the occasional Hollywood hit you’ll want to check out the Cineplex app for your BlackBerry smartphone or tablet.
