Beginning next week Facebook users will have access to Fandango ticketing for select movies and theaters, either through the social site’s ads or specific movie Facebook pages. The new ticketing service will kick off on the Facebook pages of The Magnificent Seven, Kevin Hart: What Now? and Storks.
“We are thrilled to introduce Fandango ticketing on Facebook,” said Fandango President Paul Yanover. “Not only is this a huge convenience for the millions of movie fans who are discovering and sharing their love of movies on Facebook, it is also a big win for studios and exhibitors who are looking to activate moviegoers’ interests into ticket purchases.”
Fandango says it will widen its Facebook project to additional markets and films “in the near future.”
