Movie Theatre Exhibitors Seek New Avenues of “Boosting” Revenue by Controlling Their Online Ticketing

Webedia Movies Pro (WMP), the world’s #1 provider of technology and data for the global film industry, today announced the launch of a new division - BOOST - as part of a larger reorganization of its powerful revenue enhancing tools for the film industry. The creation of BOOST comes on the heels of a highly successful 2018 where WMP products and tools were responsible for $500 million in box office revenue going straight to theatre exhibition chains. Malcolm MacMillan will lead the new division as EVP of Global Exhibition for BOOST Products and Services.
In conjunction with the launch, BOOST is announcing four launch partnerships for the new division with B&B Theatres, CGR Cinemas, Landmark Theatres and National Amusements, Inc. (Showcase Cinemas) who are all seeking to create more revenue by controlling the way they interact with their customers online and at their box office.
Said Mr. MacMillan, “BOOST Products and Services enable exhibitors to take direct control of their online customer interactions, delivering enhanced revenue performance and more customer data. Theatre exhibitors that are using any other method to connect with their customers online - either through ticketing or discovery - are leaving money on the table,” He explained why control of the customer journey is critical for exhibitors, “Online ticketing grew by nearly 20% in 2018 and is showing no sign of slowing down.  In turn, we’ve seen that a growing number of moviegoers prefer to find their movie times and purchase tickets directly from their local cinema chain. We make sure that our clients are positioned to take full advantage of these trends.”
Joe Mollo, SVP Information Technology, National Amusements, Inc. (Showcase Cinemas) said, “We have worked with Webedia to develop a strong online platform for growth as we develop and deploy new guest experiences. In the UK, Webedia has provided the technology and expertise that has resulted in consistent double-digit online sales growth over the last 2 years. We are now applying the successful model to the US."
Said Bobbie Bagby Ford, EVP of B&B Theatres, “Webedia Movies Pro has been a valued digital partner for 3 years, from creating our weekly newsletters to boosting our online ticketing conversion through responsive frameworks. We look forward to continuing our partnership by taking advantage of their new innovations and mobile solutions. They are simply great partners to B&B.”
Said Jeffrey D Agnone, Director of Information Technology at Landmark Theatres, “Webedia has been a critical partner of Landmark Theatres for over 4 years.  The foresight of integrating all of their online ticketing products demonstrates that Webedia is the partner we need to achieve our mutual goal of boosting ticket sales.
Said Antoine Gouiffes-Yan, Director of Marketing, CGR Cinemas, "Webedia Movies Pro is a key digital marketing partner for CGR. We are very enthusiastic about their new data-driven platform that allows us to better target our customers, and work intelligently with the distributors around movie releases”
