The ‘SuperTicket’ concept is already common in North America and in Europe, but this is the first time that it will have been tried in the UK.
On April 3rd, thriller Kidnapping Freddy Heineken, starring everyone’s favourite on-screen serial killer Anthony Hopkins, will debut in UK cinemas. And, provided you go see it at an Empire Cinemas venue (for no more than the cost of a regular screening ticket), you’ll walk out with a digital copy of the film, redeemable through Wuaki.tv. You won’t be able to download it immediately, of course, but you can preorder it ahead of the retail release date, which online rental and sales channels are typically bound by. LINK
A good overview of the cinema scene in Malaysia, including expansions by existing operator like MBO, TGV and GSC, as well as new ones like CGV (they sure do like their acronyms).
One of Malaysia’s oldest cinema operators – Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) – ended 2014 on a high note by opening a multiplex at Quill City Mall, Kuala Lumpur – which boasts 10 new screens, featuring the trademark THX-certified hall and Dolby Atmos 3D sound technology – and recently introduced Dolby Atmost and DBox to its multiplex in Gurney Plaza, Penang.
This brings GSC’s figure to 284 screens at 31 locations around Malaysia. (GSC also has 25 screens in five locations in Vietnam.)
TGV Cinemas is also looking at opening up 20 more locations in the next three to five years. LINK
