Bringing The Priceline Model To Movie Tickets In The Hartford Area

by Categorized: Apps Tagged: Date:

MIO5X015_70E7_9Movie theaters have empty seats and moviegoers want to pay less for tickets. Makers of a new app are hoping to solve both problems.

Dealflicks describes itself as Priceline for movie tickets and has teamed up with three Hartford area theaters to sell discounted tickets in hopes of filling seats and saving customers money.

The company also offers mobile apps on iPhone, and Android in addition to the website. Dealflicks is listing discount tickets for three Hartford area theaters: Spotlight Theaters on Front Street in Hartford, Starplex Cinemas in Berlin, and Metro Movies in Middletown.  There are cinemas listed for other areas around the country. Discounts on the site range from 10 to 50 % depending on the theater, movie time and package (tickets alone or tickets with snacks.)

For example, Tuesday night’s 7:15 showing of Ironman 3 in 3D at the Starplex Cinemas in Berlin will cost a moviegoer $7, including a small popcorn — about a 50% savings. Discounts vary by show time and location, with some locations only listing daytime availability.

Ticket prices hit an all-time high in 2012, with an average ticket price of $7.96, according to a Deadline.com report of data from the National Association of Theatre Owners earlier this year.
