Make a html website with CSS and JavaScript to be a website for movie ticketing agency

A basic outline of how a movie ticketing website might be structured with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Here's an example of what the structure might look like, with some simple interactive elements.
HTML (index.html):

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<title>Movie Ticketing Agency</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
<h1>Movie Ticketing Agency</h1>
<section id="movies-list">
<!-- This is where the list of movies will be generated by JavaScript -->

<section id="ticket-purchase">
<h2>Buy Your Ticket</h2>
<form id="ticket-form">
<label for="movieSelect">Choose a movie:</label>
<select id="movieSelect" required>
<!-- Movie options will be added here by JavaScript -->

<label for="seats">Number of seats:</label>
<input type="number" id="seats" min="1" max="10" required>
<button type="submit">Purchase Tickets</button>

<script src="scripts.js"></script>
CSS (styles.css):
/* Basic reset */
* {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
box-sizing: border-box;

body {
font-family: 'Arial', sans-serif;

header {
background-color: #333;
color: white;
padding: 10px 20px;
text-align: center;

main {
padding: 20px;

#movies-list, #ticket-purchase {
margin-bottom: 20px;

form > label, form > select, form > input, form > button {
display: block;
margin-top: 10px;

button {
background-color: #007bff;
color: white;
padding: 10px;
border: none;
cursor: pointer;

button:hover {
background-color: #0056b3;

footer {
background-color: #333;
color: white;
text-align: center;
padding: 10px 20px;
position: fixed;
bottom: 0;
width: 100%;
JavaScript (scripts.js):

// Example array of movies
const movies = [
{ id: 1, title: "Avengers: Endgame", duration: "3h 1m" },
{ id: 2, title: "The Lion King", duration: "1h 58m" },
{ id: 3, title: "Toy Story 4", duration: "1h 40m" },
// Add more movies here...

window.onload = function() {
const form = document.getElementById('ticket-form');
form.addEventListener('submit', purchaseTickets);

function populateMovies() {
const moviesList = document.getElementById('movies-list');
const movieSelect = document.getElementById('movieSelect');

movies.forEach(movie => {
// Add to the list
const movieItem = document.createElement('div');
movieItem.textContent = movie.title + ' - ' + movie.duration;

// Add to the dropdown
const option = document.createElement('option');
option.value =;
option.textContent = movie.title;

function purchaseTickets(event) {
const movieSelect = document.getElementById('movieSelect');
const seatsInput = document.getElementById('seats');

const selectedMovie = movies.find(movie => == movieSelect.value);
alert('You have purchased ' + seatsInput.value + ' tickets for ' + selectedMovie.title);
You can save these code snippets with their respective filenames (index.html, styles.css, and scripts.js) and run it on a local or web server to see the page in action.
This example demonstrates how you would create a simple webpage for a movie ticketing agency with a listing of movies that users can select from a dropdown to "purchase" tickets (simulated by an alert). You can expand on this by adding a backend to handle real transactions, user authentication, movie database, and other required features for a commercial ticketing website.

Explain to how javascript works in the context of this page:

You've got your HTML and CSS rocking steady, looking sharp—your webpage's strutting its stuff like a peacock, right? But then, what rolls in? JavaScript, the life of the party, the engine under the hood, the thing that makes your webpage do the cha-cha!
This script is like the puppet master pulling the strings. When the page loads, BAM! The JavaScript kicks in like a shot of adrenaline. The window.onload function says "showtime!" and sets everything in motion. It's calling populateMovies() to throw those movie titles on the screen like they're headliners at Madison Square Garden.
And let me tell you about populateMovies. This function takes our list of Hollywood blockbusters and slaps 'em onto the page, real nice and easy. You've got your movie list element and your dropdown menu, and this function is filling 'em up. It's laying out the red carpet and letting you know what's playing.
Now, here's the real kicker. You've got a form, right? It's like the VIP lounge, where the big deals happen. When someone hits that "Purchase Tickets" button, they think they're gonna score some seats. But what are they really getting? A little popup surprise—an alert! That's our purchaseTickets function, the doorman checking if you're on the list.
This function grabs what you picked from the dropdown and how many seats you're hogging. Then—wham!—it hits you: "You have purchased [X] tickets for [Movie Title]." It's all smoke and mirrors, though, 'cause there's no actual ticket or sale—not yet anyway. This ain't Wall Street; it's more like Monopoly money at this point.
So that's the JavaScript rundown. It's dynamically updating content, hooking into form events, and giving you that interactive buzz. But remember, it's just the tip of the iceberg, kids. With a real backend, some APIs, and a payment system, we could turn this sandbox into a cash cow. Boom!
