Online tickets a boon for tiatr lovers
Selling tickets online can be advantageous for both tiatr directors and tiatr enthusiasts who would not have to go to the venue to book their tickets. With the progress of online booking, the tiatr industry is also catching up
Whether in cities or towns, shopping malls, fast food outlets and even mobile food carts in every nook and corner have the online payment facility to facilitate easy payment for goods and food, ordered or purchased. Cashless payment made directly from your mobile phone allows you to avoid constant cash withdrawals from the bank or having enough cash in your wallet.
This practice of online payment using popular apps slowly shifted to the entertainment industry and helped not only those who wanted to buy a ticket for a movie or a tiatr, but also those who had to face countless difficulties in selling tickets on a daily basis. at the counter.
Previously, the director of the tiatr had to employ a person to sell tickets for his production. And after the show, the person concerned gave the director the sum collected on the sale of the tickets and returned home with the commission which had been promised to him.
On the other hand, spectators wishing to attend a show of their choice also had to take the trouble to travel from their residence to the auditorium box office and book their tickets themselves. And if the show was declared houseful, then they would be forced to go home disappointed, without
But now, with the easily accessible online payment facility, the tiatr director can tackle ticket sales alone without involving intermediaries. And at the same time, the public can also book tickets online, well in advance, and enjoy the show without any inconvenience.
The experience of online ticket booking and payment has been tried by some of the tiatr directors and they have found it to be to their advantage and the convenience of tiatr fans. They spotted many spectators ready to make the reservation of the tickets including online payment, thus avoiding the hassle of personally going to the auditorium for the same.
Pascoal de Chicalim attempted the online payment exercise for his ‘Anj Boddvo’ tiatr after the pandemic. And when he continued with his new production, “Hanv Goemcho Saiba”, he met with great success, and many tiatr viewers booked and paid for their tickets through an online service. The same viewers then collected their respective tickets from the director backstage on the scheduled day of the show.
Every time Pascoal de Chicalim stages his tiatr, he says he keeps two books of tickets with him for online booking, in addition to leaving the rest at the box office. “Tiatr directors as well as tiatr viewers should take advantage of this online installation system, which will be beneficial and convenient for both and in the long run, it will definitely help in a smooth presentation of tiatrs,” says Pascoal.
Peter/Roshan also tried the same experiment with their first titles “Hero” and “Uzo” and now with “Atam Tem Mhojem”, and they found that many viewers were interested in online booking and paying for tickets. “Many employed viewers from distant countries cannot afford to come in person to book their tickets, so they prefer to book online and once this task is completed, they only have to collect the tickets from the box office and go straight to the auditorium,” says Peter. .
“Thanks to online booking and payment, double ticketing is also easily avoided, to the great convenience of viewers. Previously, there would be a lot of confusion with tickets of the same letter of the alphabet or the same number being issued to two different people. And then there would be a commotion in the auditorium. But now, thanks to online payment applications, this conflict has been resolved thanks to online booking,” he adds.
Peter also says that many viewers, especially the younger generation, don’t want to bother carrying cash in their wallet. He says, “The online payment facility therefore becomes very convenient for them and saves travel, energy and time. The other benefit of online booking for the tiatr director is that it gives you an accurate idea of how many tickets are booked and sold for each show. According to him, there have been more online reservations of tickets with online payment compared to reservations made personally at the counter.
Joel Fernandes from Velim is currently working on an app through which ticket booking for all titles will be easily done directly through the website in the near future. “And if all the directors of tiatr come together and support this new project, then it will be a great success just like for the films screened daily in different multiplexes”, says Joël.
