Lining up to buy movie tickets can be a “thing of the past” for moviegoers who would use SM Cinema’s new theater innovation called “e-PLUS.”
“e-PLUS, the first of its kind in the country, gives movie-watching an exciting twist. We are innovating to provide our patrons more convenient access where they don’t need to fall in line when purchasing movie tickets. They just have to go straight to their cinema of choice and insert their card. We are loading up the card with rewards and perks. The e-PLUS card is a prefect entertainment gift card. It is also ideal as corporate giveaways for various programs and promotion.” says Ms. Sahara Jean Garnica, Senior Marketing Manager of SM Cinema.
e-PLUS, which stands for Entertainment, Privileges, Lifestyle, Upgrades and Surprises, allows moviegoers to load credits on the prepaid card and easily upgrade it to a loyalty card for free. By upgrading it, cardholders can earn reward points for every use at any SM Cinema and Snacktime branch. The rewards are easily redeemable at e-PLUS booths available in all SM Cinema nationwide.
As long as the e-Plus card has a load, all that a moviegoer needs to do is insert the card thru the digital cinema ticket reader. And viola! You get the access already without having to queue for quite some time.
