The�Fandango and MovieTickets websites�both allow users to search for theaters by area code, select those theaters to see lists of showtimes, and then purchase tickets directly from those theaters. The service typically incurs an online surcharge for ticketing, but it allows moviegoers to avoid the hassle of standing in lines and showing up early.
Online ticketing is a very simple process. Moviegoers need only know the theater they wish to go to and the film they wish to attend.
- Search by theater
- Select the�showtime
- Purchase tickets
The first step for any site user is to input the desired area code or theater name. Once the results table is displayed, users can choose from among the theaters produced and find the specific theater they wish to attend.
Once the user has selected a theater, they can choose a film and showtime. The search page shows lists of available showtimes which also function as direct links to the ticketing page. This streamlines the process of ticketing considerably.
Clicking on the desired film and showtime brings users to the ticketing page where they can purchase tickets via credit, debit or online billing service. This is often where surcharges are levied, but the entire process takes little time and effort.
