Open Ticket – a new approach replacing the last minute ticket booths
We've all been there: can I get a last minute ticket to a show that's already sold out? This year we're launching a new service – Open Ticket (OT). The goal is to efficiently make use of all the available seats in the screening room.
How does Open Ticket work?
OT is essentially a pre-paid card that you can charge via cash or debit card payments at the festival ticket office. OT card owners can scan their cards when entering the screening room – at the exact time the movie starts – and proceed to any available seat (including unused reserved seats, if there are any). You can also use the OT card to purchase tickets to any show that is not yet sold out.
What about last minute ticket booths?
Instead of a single long line to the last minute ticket booths at the cinema ground floor, the guests may instead go to their respective screening rooms. OT card owners may check seat availability in real time while on the move.
Tags – what are they for?
Tags can be used to help you create your own plan for the films that you would like to see at the festival. You can click on a colored tag next to the screenings that you would like to attend.
The tags have the following meaning:
You can place a tag next to a particular screening, and you can also add a description with your own notes. If you add a description and also choose the option “share a tag” other system users will be able to read your notes. By using this function, it is possible to see how many other people have tagged a particular film. Films that have been tagged are highlighted in the film list when browsing the festival program. In order to see a list of the films that you have tagged, choose the option “my films”. Tags can only be added when you are logged in.
Adding a tag to a film does not add that film to your shopping cart.
