U-Nexus presents Theater Ushering System, a system which monitors the empty seats of a theater and displays the seating availability on the entrance to the theater, thus providing a sense direction to the late moviegoer. By knowing the location of the empty seats, one can eliminate the tasks of searching and quickly make way towards the seat to reduce distractions to others. By eliminating the need for searching, moviegoers can now focus on navigation to the seat thus reducing the chance of accidents. During other times, the display panels can be used for other purposes such as information display or advertisements. To promote interaction between customers, we can execute trivia games before the movie starts. We can then use the theater ushering system to keep high scores, where winner can receive prizes. With increased interaction amongst audiences, movie experiences will never be the same again. In conclusion, the intention of the system is to aid the movie industry by providing an improved experience to moviegoers.
