SM Cinema is continuously looking for ways to enhance its patrons' movie experience, in cinema quality and convenience. The new SM Cinema website provides a more efficient way of browsing through the movie schedule of all SM Cinema branches nationwide, while giving patrons the unique opportunity to purchase/reserve tickets right at the comfort of their own personal computers.
A bCODE is a secure and encrypted message that can be scanned easily. The message is the result of a proprietary algorithm that's transmitted across technology that's standard in over 99.7% of the world's mobile phones. Anybody familiar with a text message will be instantly comfortable with a bCODE. It can be scanned via the bCODE machine located in all SM Cinema branches, whether it is printed or shown via SMS.
Receiving email differs from one email provider to another, depending on how they filter your incoming emails. Some of them may take longer to receive the confirmation email. Others may filter the confirmation email for Spam/Junk Folder. You may try using a different email address if it is taking too long, or check your Spam/Junk Folder.
You can search movie schedules via the following:
Schedules page: At the home page, click on the Schedules button. From the Schedules page, you will be able to search for schedules per branch or per movie.
Movie Search bar: At the home page, click on the Movie Search bar. You can filter the search bar for the specific cinema branch and movie. After clicking on Go button, you will be directed to the Schedules page, showing the specific branch and movie schedule you specified at the Movie Search bar.

Branch visibility on the SM Cinema website will be dependent on whether the branch has posted new movie schedules.

However, branches are able to update immediately and will almost always be available.
The SM Cinema website connects with all SM Cinema branches nationwide, and updates them immediately for all online purchases and reservations. When you buy a ticket for an IMAX movie for example, your selected seat/s will be blocked for you as soon as you complete your transaction online.
Once online purchase has been made, it has already been recorded in the database of the branch you purchased from. If there is a need to change movie schedules after purchasing, you may proceed to the branch you purchased from and request a change in schedule at the ticket booth. Bring your transaction information (your printed voucher or the reference number will do) so that the cinema personnel can verify your transaction details, before processing your request
