Movietickets.com has moved into Second Life and that’s great, right? I can see myself playing some slingo and tringo to win some money and then buy some tickets to watch a movie at a local theater. I was all excited to visit the island for movietickets.com but couldn’t find a way to pay for tickets with lindens. All I could do was watch previews and get free 3d glasses. Yes the 3d glasses look really cool and watching previews can be interesting. When I click on the movie poster it links me to their website to buy tickets with real money.
I did find out if you go to the different theaters you will be able to see the preview which shows on the outside sign. I didn’t know this before and couldn’t find any instructions about this. They should have somewhere which explains this at least. Be sure you stop the movie first before going into another theater. Sometimes I get the same preview I saw or nothing but a blank screen.
You might have to wait a couple of seconds or a minute for the preview to start. Some theaters are not showing any previews or the wrong previews too. Couple of places didn’t have theater seating to sit on. There is also a teleporter on the left side of the building which takes you to each of the theaters. I barely found it and it didn’t list the previews playing. This place needs to be fixed up a bit more and I really want to see a way to buy tickets with lindens. Now that would be a big announcement! I hope they have this planned for the future! Reading the press release they do have some interesting ideas for the future.
