Usheru - Your Cinema App now Live. Turn Empty Seats into Great Cinema Experiences. (Free App)

25
Found 17th Apr 2015
Seen this mentioned in this weeks ShortList and they reckon it'll be huge. Usheru aims to fill cinemas (ave. 75% empty) by offering dynamic pricing, last-minute offers and exclusive previews. They have launched in London but the rest of the UK can download the app and signup for updates. The app is free to download and worth keeping an eye on, I reckon!

Here is the site blurb...

LOVE CINEMA?

usheru
your cinema app will tell you about films you will love, in your area, with exclusive offers.

People love movies
We understand what types of films each individual loves

How is this a freebie?

Well I was unsure as the app is free and they may offer some paid or free cinema offers so I opted for freebie due to the initial spend. Wherever I posted it, someone was always going to say 'how is this deal/freebie/whatever'. The mods can change to a deal if that suits better.

Well it's only just launced so it seems a little early to write it off at this stage. The BBC have featured it in this video too

Then again, if the majority of people can't use this, it's not really a good deal.

Not every company can be national right off the bat.. give these things a chance at least. For free, it's worth a try.

Rubbish, its a good deal for those that can use it. Just cos you or some can't use it doesn't make it a bad deal. As was said recently if you don't have an Xbox, PS4 etc does that make all them deals cold or a bad deal, no!

Maybe if it was upfront and stated the area it covered that would help. Do you expect someone to post if the local shop has reduced it's cakes at the end of the day? My post is still valid... you are just spamming.

Well said guys. I posted this up and I'm not from London so I can't use the app at the mo but as I said in the title post, it's worth keeping an eye on, surely? It may turn out to be great, it may not, but there's no harm in finding out.

You should maybe re-read the opening paragraph, it clearly states the launch is in London..

looks to be a reason why these films would have seats available...

They had an offer near me in the Wirral, so isn't just London, except that I bet is where the main focus is.

Also, today is Friday, a popular day for a cinema trips so I imagine very few deals are out there.

Hopefully in time, as it grows and expands, we will see more and more deals across the UK.

Seem to recall that EasyCinema (part of the Easyjet group) was based on a similar idea. Is that still around?

If 9 million locals plus millions of tourists used that local shop then it would definitely seem worth posting

Thanks OP, worth a download even if it doesn't cover my area yet. Like all things the more people who express an interest will help increase the chance that it will become available in their area. Like Virgin broadband, wasn't available up my street for years, now this year it is

Brilliant idea, thanks for posting this fraz - ignore all the negative comments. Logic rarely creeps it's beautiful head in these parts of the interwebs.

Voted hot OP.

Just tried it and deleted the app in 1 min. You have to try and see what I mean.
