I use Fandango for nearly every movie I go to nowadays, but going to the ticket booth to redeem it can be a pain. If you’re in the eight test markets, you can now use your phone to skip by the ticket lines.
You’ll now have the option to receive your ticket as a 2D QR code that can be scanned at the theater. The movie venues need special scanners to recognize these codes, which is why the program is only available in a few markets. If you print out your own Fandango tickets at home, this may not seem like a big deal but once this is fully rolled out, it would make the Fandango app even better on the go. Feel free to give it a try if you frequent one of the theaters below.
