Dendy Cinemas has been a long-time favourite of local communities by doing things differently, listening to its customers and striving to improve the value proposition of a trip to the cinema. Dendy is therefore very pleased to announce that it is removing online booking fees across all its locations from June 29th. The internet of things and the adoption rate of smartphones have been instrumental in enabling fast and frictionless service to the consumer, across several industries.

Right now with Dendy, consumers can search for films and buy their tickets online, then skip the queues by scanning their mobile device at the ticket checkpoint. The advantage of saving time and hassle by booking online has to date come at a cost to the consumer with the booking fees that get added at the end of the online transaction. For many, this has been an obstacle to booking online and by removing booking fees, Dendy will unlock all these great benefits for all patrons to enjoy.

With the time and money saved by booking online, Dendy customers can skip straight to the candy bar to check out the delectable menu and be tantalised by the famous Dendy choc tops. For those looking for more of a great value snack, Dendy recently introduced a new ‘mini’ range of candy bar items including a popcorn for only $2. “Dendy loves innovation and finding ways to attract patrons to our cinemas and exceed their expectations. By removing booking fees and adding value options at the candy bar Dendy is delivering on this commitment to its customers,” said Dendy/Icon CEO Greg Hughes.

With great upcoming films like Spider-Man, Baby Driver, Dunkirk, War of the Planet of the Apes and Wind River, Dendy customers can book online to secure their seats, skip the queues and never pay booking fees again.

There’s more to love at Dendy.
