The story behind Self Scan

At the end of 2018, Event Cinemas opened a brand new cinema site in Australia, implementing an original approach to concession sales. Moviegoers wouldn’t queue at a traditional concession stand anymore but would collect their order – pre-paid online or purchased at a kiosk when entering the cinema – at a self-service candy bar. In order to achieve this, Event Cinemas needed a form of self-service validation which could be monitored by staff.
After several rounds of collaborative design and feedback between Event Cinemas and Vista teams, the idea of Self Scan was born, with an immediate focus on providing a great level of flexibility for cinemas depending on their site layout. The 3 modes Tickets Only, Concessions Only, or Tickets & Concessions were part of the initial scope, as Event quickly concluded they would benefit from expanding Self Scan across the cinema, for all type of orders.

Since then, Event Cinemas implemented Self Scan in various location across Australia.
