updated: Ayala Cinemas: Sure seat

It's been a long time since I last made an entry and I must say that I had become a little bit unfamiliar with blogging already. Thanks to the blocked internet access during work (sarcastic tone).

Anyway, along with the unfamiliarity of the blog which I almost forgot, I had the chance just today to make an online transaction, ticket purchase and seat reservation, to watch a movie at Abreeza Cinema. And because of the easy transaction that we did 10 minutes ago, we're going to watch Ice Age 4 today at 2:45 PM.

To do an online purchase, you can simply go to Sureseats webpage, register/login into your account, choose which cinema and do a purchase. Once you have done that, you can print your ticket, present it to the cinema and watch the show.

However, if you don't have a printer nearby, you can simply take a photo of the ticket by using your cellphone or camera and present it to the ticket counter. Make sure that the photo is clear and the characters are readable. My uncle has done this before and it's valid even without the hard copy of the ticket.

Aside from that, Sureseats has made their website cool so that you can add friends and make a status.

So if you're thinking of all the hassles when you buy a ticket where blockbuster movies are being shown, just remember that you can stay away from long queues by doing a purchase online.

By the way, here is a photo of the online confirmation after buying a movie ticket. This is also the photo that I presented to the ticket collector before entering the cinema.
