Monterey Cinema

Auckland, New Zealand

One of the leading lights of independent cinema in New Zealand is the Monterey Cinema, run by the inimitable Kelly Rogers—an industry legend!

Being a trailblazer is a path few tread, but when it goes well, it brings many rewards for those who have no fear. Having been deeply involved in all aspects of independent cinema, Kelly has literally “been there, done that”. Frustrated with his old ticketing system, Kelly looked very hard at the available options. After much careful analysis, only one option stood out—Veezi. Not only was it one of the best, most cost-effective cinema management software systems, but also capable of running the Monterey and other associated sites to Kelly’s exacting requirements.

Don't just take our word for it though, Kelly explains the rationale behind his decision:

"After years in the business, I've had to figure out some things and now have a reputation for doing things my way. Call it my 'indie' spirit. Having a good system in place is critical; finding a cost-effective solution for my kind of cinema was another matter! Believe me, I've looked at the options!

“Frustrated, I talked to the experts at Vista and they revealed the perfect solution. Veezi's got the smarts and benefits of Vista, while leaving out the stuff I don't need. And it’s priced right too! An easy decision if you're into anything that's good for your business.

“Even better, I got to trial it free for 30 days, so I was confident changing software. And if you are one of those who doesn't have online ticketing, now is your chance to try. Smartest decision you'll ever make.

“Now you're in the know, next time you see me, it's your shout!”

"At full capacity we have over 400 cars, that’s 900 to 1000 people at any one time. The curse of drive-ins are the grid locks, but with Veezi we now have a dedicated person moving along the queues of cars selling tickets via a tablet, in advance of reaching the box office."
