Los Angeles (PRWEB) November 30, 2005
Fans won’t have to ‘go ape’ searching for tickets to the highly-anticipated remake of the classic, King Kong. Fandango, the nation’s largest online, phone and mobile movie ticketing service, announced advance tickets for the Peter Jackson-helmed film are now on sale for select theaters at http://www.fandango.com and via wireless devices at mobile.fandango.com.
“It’s been an exciting holiday season so far with advance tickets for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and The Chronicles of Narnia selling like gangbusters -- and we expect King Kong will be another monster at the box office,” says Fandango President and CEO, Art Levitt. Now more than ever, fans will want to take advantage of the opportunity to buy tickets in advance from the comfort of their home or office, skip the box office and avoid "sold out" signs at the theater.
Fandango, the nation’s largest movie ticketing service, sells tickets to approximately 13,000 screens and 1,100 theaters (nearly 70 percent of theaters in the U.S. enabled for remote ticketing) and to four out of the five largest U.S. theater circuits (according to National Association of Theater Owners, June 2005). A consortium of the nation’s largest theater chains (including Regal Entertainment Group, Carmike Cinemas, Cinemark, Loews Cineplex Entertainment and Century Theatres, among others), Fandango sells tickets to more screens than all of its competitors combined. One of the Web’s top movie destinations (according to Nielsen//NetRatings), Fandango allows moviegoers to quickly select a film, plan where and when to see it, read reviews, view trailers and buy tickets up to 45 days in advance. Fandango is available at http://www.fandango.com, 1-800-FANDANGO and via your wireless device at mobile.fandango.com.
