Passengers who happen to have to wait a bit longer for their flight will have the option of spending their time at a digital theater located at the domestic departure terminal of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport's Terminal 3 in Tangerang, Banten.
The Digital Cinema is said to be equipped with 13 chairs, large screen and is soundproof. A private theater will also be available for visitors to enjoy Indihome -- state-owned telecommunications company Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom)'s triple-play service for landlines, high-speed internet, and pay TV services -- features, such as TV and video on demand via a widescreen smart TV. Game enthusiasts can also rejoice as a game station will be available as well.
“Flight passengers will be able to see the [movie] schedule and reserve their seat via the Indonesia Airports app on Android smartphones,” said state-run airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II president director Muhammad Awaluddin in a press release during the theater's soft launch. “They are also able to request movies they want to see from the app.”

The Digital Cinema is part of cooperation between the airport operator and Telkom, as well as the Airport Go Digital program campaign that was kicked off in late 2016.
“It’s highly possible that flight passengers at Terminal 3's international terminal will also be able to enjoy the Digital Cinema in the future,” added Telkom executive vice president for Regional II Jakarta, Teuku Muda Nanta.
The Digital Cinema is the latest digital-based services provided at Terminal 3. It previously introduced smart parking, a smart queuing system for taxis, digital baggage handling system, self-service check-in, high-speed Wi-Fi and Android app Indonesia Airports. The iOS version of the app is slated for launch in the near future. (kes)
