Fandango and AOL's Moviefone announced an exclusive ticketing partnership, marking the first alliance between the two companies. “Partnering with Fandango gives Moviefone users an upgraded experience by allowing them to buy tickets from twice as many theaters with more options,” said Jay Kirsch, SVP and General Manager, AOL Marketplace, in a press release.
In their partnership, the two companies plan to expand where consumers can purchase tickets, focusing on mobile devices and tablets. Moviefone will also offer users "mobile barcoded ticketing" which allows customers to send movie tickets straight to their phones.
