CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0     Introduction

          Online movie ticket reservation system is basically made for providing the customer’s, any where and anytime service for booking seat in movie hall and together. Information about the movies online. The user can easily be able to know about the movies released and then make choice.

It is a web-based system. The customers can buy ticket online and cancel the seat at a suitable time (2 days before the show to 1hour before the show). To enhance the refund function, all the customers have to register to become a number before buying the ticket. Staff can use the system to insert and delete data (example film description, time table) which will update the webpage. Also staff can check the statistic information from the system.

The system is to provide an alternate and convenient way for a customer to buy movie tickets. It is an automatic system. After the data has been fed into the database, the staff does not need to do anything with the order once it is received through the system.

The name “movie” originates from the fact that photographic film (also called film stock) has historically been the medium for recording and displaying motion pictures. Many other terms exist for an individual motion picture, including picture, picture show, moving picture, photoplay and flick.     

1.1     Theoretical Background

Today, it is believed that the application of computer technology in any activity would go a long way in making that activity much easier.

To the researcher, this statement remains a theory until proven otherwise by the implementation of online movie ticket reservation system.

It also believed that the benefit and advantages of using computer out weight that of the manual methods beyond doubt by the researcher through the implementation of the new system.

1.2     Statement of the Problem

          The major problem that give rise to this research project faced by the Silver Bird Cinema, Eket.

(i)                            Late seats reservation by customers.

(ii)                         Fluctuation of network service.

(iii)                       Inability to booked seat by computer illiterate customers.

(iv)                       Corrupt and tactical customers who have ways of sneaking into the cinema hall with fake seats number printout.

1.3       Aim and Objectives of the Study

The main aim of this study is to design and implement an online movies ticket reservation system. This system will achieve the following objectives.

(i)                            To establish an efficient way to promote the film on the internet.

(ii)                         To minimize the number of staff at the ticket box.

(iii)           To increase the profit and obtain statistical information from the booking record.

(iv)           To provide an anytime, anywhere service for the customers to book their movie ticket.

(v)             To create a reliable database of movies in the case study with their description.

(vi)           For research purpose (project writing and defuse.

1.4     Significance of the Study

This research project will be unnecessary if it does not have significance to humanity.

(i)                The newly designed system is faster, more convenient and you do not have to go to station twice.

(ii)             Online ticket reservation is always a safe option, unless the website is insecure.

(iii)           Booking online ticket is safe if the company you plan to use, uses a Secure Server Software (SSS). This basically hides year private information from there.

(iv)           It saves a lot of money in printing cost because the company do not need to printout ticket to give to customers which get binned after the film anyway.

(v)             It also saves a lot of time for the customers because, they do not need to arrived early to queue for ticket in case they are all sold out.

1.5     Scope and Limitations of the Study

This research project is restricted to the implementation of an online ticket reservation system for a case study. Data used for the study were gathered from Silver Bird, Eket.

1.6     Organization of the Research

The research project has been arranged in the order; Chapter one contains the introduction, theoretical background, significance of the study, organization of research, scope of the study, limitation of the study and definition of terms. Chapter two focused on the relevant literature review high lighting basic concepts. Chapter three is concerned with the system design, which emphasis on system design and flowchart. Chapter four is the system implementation which gives direction of systems and analysis of modules. Chapter five summarizes and concludes the research work offering some useful recommendations.

1.7     Definition of Terms

In order to do away with ambiguity, some terms and keywords in the context of this research are here by defined.

Implementation:  Is the building of system and installation to ensure that it solve a particular task.

System: Is a combination of related parts into a complex whole.

Database: It is a collection of interrelated data stored together with controlled redundantly to serve one or more application in an optional fashion.
