I like to go to the movies a lot. I like being in that dark room and watching the highest resolution pictures, telling fantastic stories. I can forget the reality and the outside world, completely dive into a dream.
As a movie lover, I go to the cinema quite often. A small cinema called Heaven Cinema downtown is not far from my home. I am a member of it.
I started to receive SMS messages from Heaven Cinema. I don't remember the exact time. But I do feel that watching movies starts to get easier.
First, I started to receive new movie releases in SMS messages. It was often 2 weeks in advance. I was able to check the movies and decide whether I would like to watch them or not.
Then, I was able to book the movie through SMS messages. There is a short number of Heaven Cinema which I can send messages to it directly. The booking process is super easy. I send the movie name to that number, and it will send back a link where I can pay, choose seats, and time to watch.
I would also receive SMS messages to remind me of the time. For instance, if the movie starts tomorrow, I would receive a reminder message today in the evening. I think this kind of message is nice, because I may book the movie one week earlier, and I could forget about it. A message can help me with that. If I want to check the movie time, I can simply send "TIME" to Heaven Cinema, and it will reply to me with the movie time that I booked. Convenient.
Meanwhile, if I want to check the movie schedule of Heaven Cinema, I can send "SCHEDULE" to them. Then, I will receive the movie schedule for the next 4 weeks. I think this is cool, too.
On my birthday or other holidays, I would get discounts or gift amounts from the cinema. So I can buy tickets cheaper. Heaven Cinema would usually send SMS messages to offer me discounts. I can click the link and purchase tickets with discounts directly.
During the pandemic, I no longer go to the movies like before. I miss the days when we can go to the movies freely and together. I hope everything will get back to normal soon.
I am just a regular movie lover, and I like the SMS services that Heaven Cinema provided me. If you are running a cinema business, I hope this article can provide some insights. Good luck.
