US movie theatre chain Cineplex has updated its app so it is able to support digital tickets in Apple Wallet.

The update allows users to save their cinema tickets to Apple Wallet, which they can access from the lock screen.

While Cineplex moved its ticketing over to mobile in October, there was no option for Apple Wallet until now.

Apple Wallet functionality was available several months ago when users still needed to print movie tickets in-theatre.

The new digital capabilities allow customers to bypass ticket stations. Cineplex said in a statement: “Skip the box office line and just scan your movie ticket from the app or from Apple Wallet with the ticket taker. No need to print your ticket.”
