We're happy to announce the addition of online ticketing for Starplex Cinemas locations! (This service is being provided through our online ticketing partner, movietickets.com)

Starplex Cinemas operates 216 screens in 23 locations in California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Nebraska, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Washington.

I've been holding onto this release since early December, since none of their theaters were set up with online ticketing yet, but now 10 of the 23 theaters are online. Just look for the online ticketing icon E-Ticketing next to the theater's listing.

The full press release appears below.
