If you are a movie aficionado like me then you will want to pay close attention to this post. Movie ticket website Fandango announced today that will start selling movie tickets that can be scanned from your mobile device immediately. Similar to the 2-D barcodes that are available with some airlines Fandango’s tickets can be scanned at the ticket booth at selected theaters.
Currently this new technology is only available in a few select theaters and cities such as New York, Dallas, Houston and San Diego but is expected to be rolled out to more cities in the coming months if the tests prove effective. The costs of movie tickets will be the same if you use this new feature on your cell phone.
This is truly fantastic news if you like going to the movies but hate standing in those lines to get your tickets. You will never miss a show again because of it being sold out while you are waiting to get your tickets. You will be able to purchase your tickets to the show at home and then just skip the line all together when you get to the theater. I am quite excited to use this new technology from Fandango and looking forward to save some time waiting in line the next time I am at the movies.
