A company called Mobile Box Office has launched a new service for WAP-enabled cell phone users in the US, allowing you to browse movie listing dates and times, select and pay for any movie, then use your phone as a ticket at the movie theater. So, after you pick your movie and buy your ticket with a secure credit card transaction, you'll get an electronic bar-coded ticket on your phone that is scanned at the theater of your choice (oh, your screen has to be color, by the way). Very clever. And easy. Though right now, only Emagine Entertainment theaters are offering this service.
