Fandango.com lets movie goers buy tickets for the AMC Showcase Cinemas in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, directly over the Internet, bypassing the box office. The site also lists showtimes by day and by theater.
Fandango charges a small service fee for online ticketing. For regular theater goers it is easily justified by both the convenience of the service and by its warding off problems like showing up to sold out shows and mistaking a schedule.
Theater goers can look at upcoming schedules to determine the best times for attending a screening. They can also get a look at which films will continue playing, which will come into theaters and which will leave.
