project is aimed at developing an online ticket reservation system for Movies. The
Ticket Reservation System is an Internet based application that can be accessed
through the use of the internet and can be accessed by anyone who has a network
connection. This application will automate the reservation of tickets. This
online ticket reservation system
provides a website where any user of internet can access it. The Movie hall
should have at least multiplex with 3 screens and each screen has three
different types of classes/seats. Only 50% of seats can be reserved online.
User is required to login to the system and needs a bank credit card for booking
the tickets. Tickets can be collected at
the counter. Watching movies with family and friends in theatres is one of the
best medium of entertainment and relaxation after the daily hectic schedule. But
all this excitement vanishes after standing for hours on long queues to get
tickets booked. The website provides complete information regarding current
running movies on all the screens with details of show timings, available seats
and fare charges for different classes. Seats
can be reserved for different classes as well for same show and screen also.
Ticket reservations are done using credit card and can be cancelled if needed.
The online tickets reservation system is one of the best opportunities for those
who do not have enough time to get their tickets reserved standing in long
queues. People can book tickets online at any time of day or night. Our
reservation system also provides option to cancel the tickets which are reserve
