Trying to order a ticket from https://www.spark.co.nz/myspark/thanks/secure/movies/.html and page seem to be broken (stuck with error message on 'Step 1')
Anyone else gets the error?

Stuffed here as well

Looks like someone's API is down or needs a restart as it's not pulling the movie info from events

What would the point of that be? the SIM's cost money to start with, running around to find a place that sells them after 6pm, then setting that up in a phone etc
Easier just to pay the extra few dollars for the movie.

$18.5 really feels excessive for a Monday movie tickets.
Remind me again why we shouldn't just run popcorn time and be done with it.

Big Hero 6 is a good movie to take your kids btw.

Not sure how they set movie ticket prices.
Here in Dunedin Reading has opened a new cinema and its $10 every night for 1/2 the seats in the building ($15 for premium seating)
I hope they are turning a profit.

Interestingly the Rialto around the corner is part-owned by the same parent company and yet is priced at $17.50  ($11 Tuesdays)

They must've fixed it. The original link I posted now works as well.
