- PRESS RELEASE
Batelco customers can now book and buy their cinema tickets anytime, anywhere with Batelco O Cinema by visiting cinema.o.com.bh online or on their mobiles. The new service commences from February 25th.
The convenient service allows customers to select the Bahrain cinema and movie of their choice along with their show and seating preference and additionally the number of tickets to be purchased. Once the purchase is confirmed, the customers will be given a code which may then be used at new Quick Serve machines located at select cinemas in Bahrain to collect their tickets. Currently the O Cinema service is available for City Centre, Saar, Seef 1 and Seef 2 Cinemas.
"This very innovative and convenient service means that there is no need to queue, as customers may go directly to the quick serve machine, enter their confirmation code and collect their tickets," said Batelco Group General Manager Media & Government Relations Ahmed Al Janahi.
"By buying the cinema tickets in advance, customers can avoid reaching the cinema to find that their chosen movie is already sold out!" he added.
For prepaid mobile customers, the cost of the cinema tickets will be deducted from their credit while postpaid customers will be charged in their telephone bill.
In addition to this new service, customers may also find out what movies are currently showing, plus their ratings, casting and plot overview, along with show times for the day, by visiting cinema.o.com.bh online or on their mobiles.
"This is the latest convenient service being brought to customers from Batelco. We expect this to be a very popular service with movie fans in Bahrain," added Mr. Al Janahi.
Bahrain Cinema Company Chairman Dr. Esam A. Fakhro is very enthusiastic about the launch of the O Cinema service and is very excited to launch the service in cooperation with Batelco.
"We anticipate immense enthusiasm on the use of this alternative ticketing service - 'Your Very Own Batelco Mobile Service'," he said.
"The underlying principle of Bahrain Cinema is to provide cinema-goers with the luxury of accessibility while on the move and mobile ticketing is a critical element in advancing this process. The initiative undertaken by Bahrain Cinema and Batelco is a great step forward on alternative ticketing solutions," added Dr. Fakhro.
"The launch of O Cinema is in line with Batelco's aspiration to continuously improve the use of modern technology through customer focused and convenient new solutions, thus enhancing the lives of all our customers," concluded Mr. Al Janahi.
