The advance booking period determines how far in advance tickets may purchased by the general public prior to a film's opening date. An advance booking rule may be configured to allow extra time for Loyalty members to purchase tickets. This extra time can be accessed with a recognition.
For example: Interstellar opens on 5 April 2015. An advance booking period of 4 days is set for the film. This allows the general public to start buying tickets from 1 April 2015. By configuring a recognition, eligible Loyalty members are given an extra 2 days. These Loyalty members can start buying tickets from 30 March 2015.
