How To Read Ticket Barcodes


Like most movie-goers, your only concern is getting into the theater when you buy movie tickets. You may even forget about the movie ticket barcode on your phone or movie stub after you leave the theater. But there’s a lot of helpful information encoded into those little black and white stripes! This article will talk about what’s up with movie ticket barcodes and how you can use them to make life.

What should I know about this?

First things first, movie ticket barcodes are little black and white squares with alternating bars. They’re also known as “barcodes” or just simply “QR Codes.” The number of stripes in the movie ticket barcode tells you how much money is left on your movie pass – if any! That’s why sometimes when there isn’t enough credit to buy a new movie, you’ll see something like “$0.00/20XX” under the movie title instead of a price (or at least it will say that after scanning). If this happens, don’t worry about it. Just make sure not to scan more than one movie code per visit because each time you do so, an additional $20 charge gets applied to your card movie pass.
This barcode info to include:

-Movie Barcodes are also called QR Codes or just codes in general
-Most movie theater chains have their own unique movie ticket barcode systems, so it’s hard to transfer tickets between theaters – this is mainly done for security purposes but inconveniences customers, too! Suppose you think about it since each movie chain has its movie code system. In that case, there’s an infinite number of ways these codes can be generated, making them virtually impossible to crack into if someone wants to access your account.

We hope this information has been helpful to you.
