People in the U.S. who use IMDb‘s iOS and Android mobile apps and web site made the discovery this week. The service works much the same as it does on Fandango‘s smartphone app. Buyers can add tickets to their Passbooks so a theater attendant can scan the passes directly from the screen. User fees still apply, of course. With the new arrangement, Comcast-owned Fandango expands its reach among movie portals. It already serves AOL Moviefone, MSN Movies, and Yahoo!Movies. Amazon owns IMDb and also benefits from the app update: Users can order the video of a movie from the online retailer.
