Camera Cinemas Launches New Loyalty Program Driven By Sony Felica Technology

Camera Cinemas is conducting a trial customer loyalty program for movie theaters based on Sony Electronics’ FeliCa card technology. The trial began in September at each Camera location in San Jose, Campbell, and Los Gatos, Calif., and will continue through the end of 2009.

By giving customers a more convenient way to gain and redeem loyalty points, the program’s goal is to explore potential new business opportunities for exhibitors, especially increased transactions at the box office and concession stands. 

“An effective digital cinema implementation extends well beyond the technology in the auditorium,” said Mike Fidler, senior vice president of Sony’s Digital Cinema Solutions and Services group. “We’re thinking about everything an exhibitor needs for success, and that includes business-driving efforts like customer loyalty programs.”

The FeliCa technology is a contactless IC card technology that has robust data capabilities and is secure and environmentally friendly since card data can be re-written billions of times.

“This loyalty program will help us gain invaluable knowledge about our customers, which will help us provide movie content and concessions that are tailored to their liking,” said Jack NyBlom, president of Camera Cinemas. “Plus, by utilizing the program, we’d like to give back to our frequent customers by essentially allowing them to earn free products.” 

Sony is working with a leading kiosk provider, PFU Limited, and its local subsidiary PFU Systems, Inc., to deploy kiosks in Camera lobbies. Customers can use these kiosks to print coupons that can be redeemed for accumulated points.

Sony is offering the FeliCa cards to Camera customers, who can register for the program either at the theaters or through the Camera web site. They can use the card to select coupons for free tickets, food and beverages, or a discount coupon valid at the SonyStyle store in nearby Santa Clara, Calif.
