Neat stuff. Hollywood Theaters, which operates the movie theater at the Gallatin Valley Mall in Bozeman, has started a mobile ticket program.
That means that moviegoers who buy their tickets on Fandango can have the tickets sent to their mobile phones. The phones then display a barcode for the ticket-taker to scan.
“Who doesn’t bring their phone with them to the movie theater?” said Hollywood Theaters spokeswoman Erin Anderson.
According to a press release sent out by the company, the mobile ticket program works on any wireless carrier, and you don’t need a smart phone to use it.
Anderson said the Oregon-based movie theater company hopes the program will reduce waste at theaters by 20 to 30 percent.
Anderson laughed, though, when I asked her if that meant the ticket prices would go down.
