Cineplex Mobile Updated with SCENE Passbook Integration

Cineplex Mobile was one of the first apps updated with Passbook support for movie tickets. Oddly enough, the initial Passbook update did not include SCENE integration, a much requested feature by users. Well, that has changed because Cineplex Mobile was just updated to bring SCENE integration.

What’s New in Version 3.3

    Good on Cineplex to be quick out of the gate with this

    I like it, I didn’t figure it out until I saw the Passbook button at the top right corner.

    Awesome! Works like a charm!

    so what does that mean for us? will we be able to to whip it out at every cinplex theater when we are buying tickets or food? just like with the starbucks app?

    The Cineplex app already had a Scene Card scanning feature in the app before iOS 6 so yes, I assume that’s how it works. (Oddly enough, the bar code in the app and in Passbook don’t match. I hope that won’t be an issue.)

    Anyone know why when I check my points balance in the app it shows it as being 970, but when I add the card to my passbook, it shows my points as being 0? What’s wrong?

  • NoOneCares

    It shows 0 during the transfer. But after that I opened Passbook and the point balance was correct.

  • NoOneCares

    I think it may just show a sample during the transfer. After opening Passbook, the barcode and point balance are correct.

    It’s cool!

    Apple doesn’t allow for linear barcodes in the passbook app. They put this limitation in as these type of barcodes can prove difficult to read off a screen. Definitely a double edge sword decision since it forces vendors to use a better standard, but one which is less prevalent.

  • Anthony ?

    Yup, works well. Don’t forget to add the card to Passbook after tapping the Passbook button in the Cineplex app.

    How do you add the card? I tapped the Passbook button, it says loading and then it disappears. Now what?

  • Bigboss

    I click on passbook it loads and nothing happens??

    Anyone else experiencing this?

  • godofodd

    Exact same thing here. Bought the ticket, no problem, click the Passbook button, top right corner, get a Loading notice… then right back to the ticket. Same thing with my scene card. This is frustratingly unintuitive.

  • godofodd

    I’m not sure what you mean by that. I click the Passbook button (on a ticket I purchased, or on my scene card), get a Loading message, then nothing. Right back to the same screen I was on. Nothing to indicate it’s sent to Passbook.

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    Does it show up in Passbook?

  • godofodd

    Nope. “Loading” spins in the Cineplex app for awhile, then disappears, leaving me right where I started. I pop over to Passbook and it still just shows a list of features, with a button for the appstore.

  • godofodd

    Same problem. So frustrating.

  • jabohn

    Same here. Nothing shows up in passbook.

  • geoff_y

    same here, can’t figure it out

  • Coluch

    Wait, what? Are you saying that charms work!!?
    Boy have I been missing out,

  • John March

    Adding Scene to Passbook failed for me as well. Getting the same “loading” message as everyone else, and then nothing happens. I’m glad Cineplex is on board with Passbook, I just wish it would work!

  • http://www.ryantoyota.com/ Ryan

    Yay! So glad they added this functionality. Added to my Passbook, now I just have to go to a movie theatre to see how well the location awareness works. :)

    Im in the same boat. Anyone actually get this working? I tried restarting my phone and all the apps and still no luck. Cineplex website provides no link to contact for support. I tried sending them a facebook message and will post if i get a reply.

  • Geoff

    With the latest version, Passbook integration doesn’t work for me still. Tried clearing my SCENE info from the app and re-adding, quitting and relaunching both apps, restarting phone. Nothing in Passbook. I made sure Passbook was running (and not running) each time.

    Yesterday the “Loading” when I clicked ‘Passbook’ inside the SCENE tab would take a minute and disappear, now a few seconds, but in either case, nothing.

    @godofodd:disqus @jabohn:disqus It looks like it isn’t working right now, I get the same thing. Previously, after tapping the Passbook button, you should see your pass in the Cineplex app and have an option to add it to Passbook.

    Currently in the app, when you tap the Passbook button you get a Loading screen and then get taken back to the app, so it looks like there’s a problem on the Cineplex end of things.

  • Crivers

    No luck for me either. Loading screen pops up for a second then disappears and scene card is not added to Passbook.

  • godofodd

    I’m sure they’ll have it fixed by the time I see another movie (since I only see one or two a year!). I’m glad to know it’s not just me, though. Thanks!

  • godofodd

    It doesn’t sound like it’s working for anyone anymore. Guess we’re stuck waiting.

  • http://www.facebook.com/awesome.kid.here Lucas Hawranke

    i had it working until i deleted it because im stupid and i cant get it back! it just shows a loading screen

  • stuck

    We updated the newest Scene app on Friday night and were able to add two different scene cards (1 on an iPhone 5 and 1 on a iPhone 4S). On Saturday, our friends tried it and it didn’t work. After pressing the Passbook button in the Scene app, it would show “loading” and then the message would disappear and do nothing.
    The only difference that I could see, is that the Friday update was done on WiFi, and the Saturday updates were done on 3G. I doubt this has any bearing on it, but maybe worth a try?

    Seems to be working now!

  • stuck

    we actually had a card in Passbook before the Scene card (Walgreen’s, I just made one up to see if it worked). Our friends added a Sephora card first, then the Scene card worked. Maybe Scene doesn’t work if it’s the first card in Passbook?

  • jabohn

    Thanks, yes it works now!

  • Fireindabelly

    I keel having the same loading problem everyone else is discribing. Any fixes yet?
