Just 3 initial suggestions/reactions upon first use!
1. In the 'Cinema's in your area' page, it would be useful to have a map (Google Maps view) that highlights and shows all of the cinema's 'in your area', in addition to the link to a map on each individual area. This way you can quickly identify which cinema is nearest to you, rather than having to click each individual one and look on the map.
2. It would be useful if you could have a trailer (embedded) for each film that you have on the site. Saves users going out of the site/steering traffic away to look up a trailer for themselves.
3. On all the buttons, it might be better to hyperlink the entire button rather than just the word/phrase in the button - not that important, but just for ease of use for impatient users like me.
Hope any of these might be useful! Thought the rest of the experience was very good & easy to use.
1. In the 'Cinemas in your area' page, when I click on 'Show Films' for a large proportion of the cinemas nothing is returned even though I know that cinema is showing films in that timeframe. If you don't have ability to show that information for some cinemas it would be a lot less misleading to simply state that you can't show that detail for that particular cinema. 2. Also in the 'Cinemas in your area' page the time band that becomes available after clicking on 'show films' is a touch ambiguous. E.g. as I scroll along it I can't see any indication as to which day it is now referring, once I've clicked along a few I'm totally lost. I tried then using the choice box in the top menu, but that resulted in a full page refresh, which is just frustrating. If you could ajax that I think it would make a much better user experience. 3. This is more a question as I don't know the answer, how do you handle the situation if one of the cinemas a person can buy tickets from is already sold out for a showing? It would be a shame to send someone off your site unless there is a genuine sale to be made.
For the most part I really like the site, I love having all that information so easily and readily available at my fingertips and its a service I would definitely use. Obviously I'd love to see it running more seamlessly with ability to buy tickets on site for all cinemas but early days FYI I was using firefox, I recorded some test cases that help illuminate my above points with Selenium IDE so I'll email those over to you.
