It used to be that before the movie started in the theatre, a little animation would play that prompted you with the jingle, “Let’s all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat.” Of course, that meant running the risk of missing the previews and potentially the first part of the movie, depending on how long the lines were or how slow that pimply faced teenager behind the counter moved.
Hoyts has come up with an app that lets you order snacks before you even get to the theatre, or from your seat. Hoyts CEO Damian Keogh described the reasoning behind creating the app: “Guests are continually at the heart of our business strategy and the Hoyts app with food and drinks enabled, will provide convenience and a seamless in-cinema experience like no other.”
You can download the HOYTS app from Apple and Google Play. With the app, you can order food and drink either with your ticket purchase or separately. The app also lets you choose other features offered in HOYTS theatres, as well as track what movies are playing near you.
You’ll still have to get up to go get your treats—they aren’t offering in-seat delivery yet—but at least you won’t have to wait in line.
