Cineplex Mobile Updated with Passbook Ticket Notifications


Cineplex Mobile was one of the first apps to support Passbook, Apple’s ticket repository app that debuted with iOS 6. Cineplex Mobile was updated at the end of September to bring Passbook support for SCENE cardholders now it has been updated to bring Passbook ticket notifications:

What’s New in Version 3.5

– New Interactive Cineplex Magazine
– Passbook ticket notifications
– Minor bug fixes

The update also brings access to Cineplex Magazine, but with Passbook ticket notifications you will be alerted when you are near a theatre. Just slide across the lockscreen notification and boom, your tickets will appear right away. Let us know how your Cineplex Mobile Passbook experience works out!

  • Big Passbook fail for me trying the Scene Card pass out at my last visit to the theatre. First of all, it didn’t appear on my lock screen, even after giving it some time to find my location (I suspect it may have something to do with Apple’s maps having the street that the theatre’s on mislabelled). Next, when I pulled it up manually, it wouldn’t scan at the concession (I wasn’t able to try it at the box office because I wasn’t buying my own ticket). Hopefully they improve the scanners and location data in the future.

  • Worked flawlessly for me as far as the scanning part of the app. As for the locator par and the popping of the ticket, not so much… I tried it at the Cinema Scotia on Ste-Catherine St in Montreal wich is a major street…

  • Not impressed

    The notification won’t go away now. It’s quite frustrating

    This was weird for me too. But what you do is open your passbook app on your iPhone and tap the ticket that the app is giving the notification for. You will see a little garbage can, click it and click delete this pass. Hope that made sense. I kind of figured it out on the fly. Cheers!
