Marcus Theatres releases new mobile app

Aug 27, 2013

Marcus Theatres has rolled out a new and improved mobile app that allows users to purchase tickets for any Marcus theatre using their smartphones. The app is available at no cost in the Apple App Store or through the Android Market.
 
The new graphical interface is easy to navigate and includes many features
designed to simplify and streamline the process of selecting and purchasing tickets for a movie. Users can search for theatres or movies from the app’s homepage. The app can list theatres that are within 25 miles of the user’s location, or search by zip code or city/state. Users can scroll through the theatres to see what is playing at each one, view trailers, get detailed movie information and even buy tickets.
 
"The entire ticket purchase can now take place on your smartphone,” said Rolando Rodriguez, president and CEO, Marcus Theatres Corp. “Your ticket will appear on your phone’s screen so there is no need to print anything. Simply show your phone at the box office where the cashier will scan it for admission.”
 
Enhancements to the new app include an archive of movies you have attended and the ability to securely store credit card information for future purchases. The app also allows users to buy tickets with a Marcus Theatres gift card. Another benefit for users is that when reserved seating is offered, they can select the exact seat they want.
