Ooredoo and Qatar Cinema and Film Distribution Company today announced a new partnership agreement to enable cinema goers to purchase tickets via the nationwide network of Ooredoo Self Service Machines (SSM).

The agreement marks the first time in Qatar that customers can purchase cinema tickets through a SSM, and is another important innovation from Ooredoo.

Ali I. H. Al-Ishaq, Chief Executive Officer, Qatar Cinema and Film Distribution Co., said: “This is an incredible first for Qatar, offering customers flexibility and ease of access when they purchase cinema tickets, and ensuring that people can always enjoy the latest films at our state-of-the-art movie theatres.”

Brian Speldewinde, Assistant Director, Indirect Channels, Ooredoo, said: “We’re pleased to announce this major new partnership, which brings our customers even more gift and entertainment options when they use our SSMs. The new option to buy cinema tickets joins the list of activities you can do with our SSM, including topping-up, paying bills and browsing the wide range of available vouchers.”

When customers use Ooredoo SSM to buy cinema tickets, the ticket is printed as a redeemable gift voucher, which is then valid for three months from the purchase date, and will work in any of the selected Qatar Cinema movie theatres.

Qatar Cinema and Film Distribution Company owns a range of movie theatres throughout Doha including Landmark Cinema, The Mall, Royal Plaza and Gulf/Doha Cinema. The company, which has been supplying Qatar with the latest film releases for more than 40 years, offers film fans the choice of over seven films per theatre, with a range of international, Bollywood and Arabic releases.

Customers purchasing tickets from Ooredoo Self-Service Machines can benefit from the printed vouchers’ flexible term and conditions, including movie timing choice and extended voucher life.

As an added bonus, customers who miss their selected film viewing time with the voucher can simply wait for the next showing or reschedule for another day without repaying.

To redeem their ticket, customers simply need to purchase a cinema voucher via one of Ooredoo’s nationwide Self-Service Machines, and present the voucher at the cinema front desk when booking for a preferred seat.

With more than 200 Self Service Machines placed strategically throughout the country, Qatar’s residents can now purchase their cinema tickets at the airport, Sumra border, drive-through machines at main highways and machines in popular malls and shopping areas.

Purchasing cinema tickets is the latest in a series of Ooredoo’s Self-Service Machine improvements, as Ooredoo push to offer more options for customers to keep up-to-date with their needs and on-the-go lifestyle in 2014.

In addition to cinema tickets, customers can also top-up Hala accounts, pay bills and purchase vouchers for an incredible range of shopping and dining experiences in Qatar.
