Tickets are delivered via text message after purchase. You can use the service if you have AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile and your phone has access to the Internet; a link to your ticket is sent to your phone via text. Verizon customers receive tickets via Pix message; simply click to view them. The "ticket" contains a barcode that ticket-takers will scan at the theater. There is no extra charge to use the service, currently available in eight US cities from NYC to Hawaii. One drawback: if you're purchasing multiple tickets, your entire party has to be present to enter — you can't just forward the barcode to someone else. No word yet on when the technology will go nationwide; since theaters need special scanners to honor the mobile tickets, it may be a while until they catch on.
