The Indian box office industry: US$2 billion


Justickets tied up with Cinépolis to strengthen its reach across India. Cinépolis, India’s first international movie theatre circuit, has extended an association with the leading online ticketing platform to make online booking easier for the consumers. With this collaboration, Justickets and Cinepolis together will be able to offer a modern, fast, and easy way to book tickets on the go, for current movie releases, or place orders for upcoming releases using the exclusive features provided by Justickets.

The Indian box office industry is nearly worth US$2 billion and is growing at a rate of 10 percent annually. The online movie ticketing market is currently only 15 percent of the total box office revenues, but growing rapidly. With multiple alternatives to our cinema lovers, the demand for a feasible ticketing device is high in the industry. Justickets is engineered to be the most scalable ticketing platform, capable of enduring high website traffic. The brand enables cinemas to understand the demand for an upcoming movie which can be used to gauge interest and schedule shows for a particular movie. It is a web-based, easy-to-setup platform that aims to make cinema operations and management fast and easy for the cinema buffs to make their cinematic experience pleasant.
