A bit buggy, but it works
I like this app for movie times and for buying tickets. It is buggy and is slow to start.
My biggest complaint is the stupid notifications I get when I drive near our theater. MOVIEPLEX NEARBY!!! As if I'm supposed to immediately swerve in the direction of the theater, drop everything and watch any random 3 hr movie. Uhh marketing people - the world doesn't work that way. DUH!?!?! 1 - I already know theater is there because that's where I go to watch movies and 2 - I'm doing something else right now. Get over it.
I am unable to turn off the notifications and if I try to turn off the location sensor for app, the app dies immediately.
On a positive note I tried opening app to get scannable purchase ready and had turned off cellular access for app b/c of annoying notifications so loading app and trying to turn on cellular for app was taking long time. Good news is that I was able to give my credit card to the guy and he was able to pull up my tickets.
It could be better.
First, I realized that you aren't able to redeem your loyalty points when making a purchase on a mobile device. The app also doesn't even tell you when you've achieved a $5 redemption..it just starts over at 0 so you have to keep track of it yourself or lose it after 3 months. Also, I went to select my Ultrascreen seats when purchasing tickets on my app and it didn't tell me I was choosing uncoupled seats. I was going to see 50 Shades of Grey with my boyfriend and he was paired in a seat with another man..not cool. A simple alert could've prevented that. My last issue is that the app just suddenly crashed one day. I can't load even the first page despite how many times I've updated my phone and deleted and reloaded the app, which caused me to lose my profile each time and have to contact Marcus to get it back along with my points. Even now I'm attempting to reload the app and it isn't working..
Location services locked to always
The functionality of this app is not bad at all, but the lack of privacy options knock down the rating for me. The location services is set to always and crashes the iOS settings if you try to change it. The "always" setting means that every time you have a regional location event (change cell tower) this app gets woken up by iOS and has 10 seconds to do something even if it was closed completely. So your road trip to Vegas could be tracked by Marcus. What happened in Vegas may not stay in Vegas after all.
