Singapore’s leading cinema exhibitor, Golden Village recently introduced Quick Tix – a tap-and-go system offering movie-goers the convenience of not having to stand in line at the box office to collect movie tickets.

The technology is not new, but this should be the first time it is being deployed in local cinemas.

I find this pretty nifty and extremely useful!

I hate queuing will definitely be using it in future when I purchase tickets:

Quick Tix is in operation across all GV cinemas and aim to boost productivity in cinemas as well as allow patrons to enter the theatre in a quicker, more efficient manner, particularly during weekends and blockbuster screenings.

Since its implementation, GV has seen an adoption rate of close to 20% at some of its location. With every transaction made, either through GV app iGV or online via the official GV website, an unique QR code will be sent to the customer’s email. This QR code can then be scanned directly at the usher counter to gain admission.
