Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce has installed six NCR Corp. automated teller machines that dispense movie tickets.
CIBC customers can get movie listings and show times for Cineplex Odeon theaters, check seat availability, and buy tickets through the ATMs.
The Toronto-area terminals use Internet technology embedded in a secure network running between CIBC and Cineplex Odeon, the bank said. It plans to add more machines and offer other noncash products such as airline tickets and discount coupons.
"CIBC is showing some of the true potential of ATMs as a round-the-clock bank and retail store," said Danny O'Brien, vice president of self-service solutions at NCR, Dayton, Ohio.
