Has anyone experience the Self Serve Ticketing Systems? I have thought of the idea but can't really wrap my mind around it. So I'm open to input on the subject. I once had a self serve candy wall and I didn't like that at all. Any feed back on this would be helpful.

Poppajoe,

As a patron going to large megaplex theatres, I like self-service or kiosk ticketing. It beats standing in a slow box office line. As a theatre owner, no we don't have self service ticketing as we have a five plex with two box office stations and we are pretty zippy. The nice thing about kiosk ticketing is that if you accept credit cards, which to me is the only way it makes sense, then you don't have to get a signature for automated transactions. The not nice thing about kiosk ticketing is that people can game the system by purchasing cheaper tickets than they are entitled to. Specifically, unless your ticket taker is checking adults can buy senior or kid tickets thus entitling themselves to an anytime discount. It can be done. I tried it as an experiment a couple of times and no one batted an eye that a 37 year-old handed the ticket taker a senior ticket.

One of the side effects of living a lifestyle of intemperance and debauchery (and being in the Theater Business) is that by age 37, it's easy to pass for 65!... ;-}

What age do you consider "Senior" for reduced admission price? Fifty-year olds now qualify for AARP membership, but even though I've been an AARP member for five years, I certainly don't consider myself a "Senior".

I keep telling my customers that the age for seniors will keep going up as I get older. My senior ticket age is currently 65, but may change in a few years when I get closer.

We started out with a senior age of 55, but then changed it to 60. The seniors are still bitching about it, even though we grandfathered in those who knew it was 55 and just ask for a senior ticket as we don't check id's. People seem delighted to be seniors if it gets em a discount, yet its the weekeday maitnees which are mostly seniors when our parking lot is filled with luxury cars.
