Schedule Movies

Although this is the landing page for movie schedule, it is in fact the last step of the scheduling process. Prior to scheduling movies, you must first set up your Auditoriums, Seat Maps or Low Seat Counts, Event Types, Show Types, Ticket and Ticket Prices (that may include tax tables and associated items), and after all that is done, you have to

download your movie titles, set your parameters (and terms - optional), and then you're ready to schedule movies. So if all you have to do is schedule movies, someone else did a lot of work to make that happen. As an intricate part of the theater operations, this section of Retriever Process manages all ticket sales, so it's worth exploring this section in detail.

  1. All Movies must be downloaded into the Movies Tab and start date, revenue date, and end dates must be set prior to titles being made available in the schedule list.
  2. In the schedule tab, select the movie with your mouse.
