Getting paper tickets has always freaked us out a bit since we’re pretty forgetful — and e-tickets are so much more convenient anyway. Now it seems all we have to worry about now is forgetting our phone, because Shanghai has gone ahead and decided to sell movie tickets on mobile phones. These tickets will include the time, place and name of the movie that you’re going to watch, and you just have to bring your phone and have it scanned in order to enter the movie theater. The report says that this service started on May 16, so it’s not likely that you know anyone who has done it yet, but one thing’s for sure — all these high tech conveniences won’t really matter to the 200 million people living on less than 1 US dollar a day in China. Anyway, here’s one of the websites where you can buy tickets — and they seem to have The Da Vinci Code tickets for sale for the release of the film on Friday.
