Watching movies together with our loved ones is one of the best things to do in holidays, weekends or even in special occasions (that is, if you prefer to celebrate it in form of watching movies and in simple date rather than have a party with your friends). Though there are times it is very tiring to go in cinemas due to long line in buying tickets, still a lot of people chooses to watch movies. With that, SM cinema comes up with a great idea that moviegoers would love to.
Just last month, April 11, 2012, SM Cinema launched the first e-card in the country that can be used to purchase movie tickets in easier and more convenient way to enjoy watching movies compare to what people used to have experience before in cinemas and that is The SM Cinema’s e-PLUS Card, which stands for Entertainment, Privileges, Lifestyle, Upgrades and Surprises. This allows every moviegoer to enjoy and have fun watching movies without worrying for more to line up in buying tickets!
