Ask kids of all ages what their favorite family activity is and many of them (most of them) will reply “family movie night!”  When our daughters were young every Friday night was Pizza Movie Night and we all looked forward to it. We even looked forward to it when our girls went through a phase of watching White Christmas for about 8 weeks in a row.  Phew!

It was the “family” part of family movie night that made it special. And it was extra special when there was something at the theater that we’d all enjoy – the big screen, popcorn, and all of us together.  I have so many fond memories.

In fact, now that the girls are grown, we still love a good movie night together, both in front of our small screen with Amazon Prime or a DVD, or on the big screen at our local theater.  When we find a movie that’s at the theater that we’re looking forward to seeing, the first thing we do is jump over to Fandango to get our tickets.  Not only can we see all the options at multiple theaters in our area, but, even better, now that many of our local theaters have prereserved seats (love those recliners!) we can secure our favorite spot for the evening and not get stuck in the first or second row and neck pain for the rest of the night!

Fandango is easy. You can print your tickets at home and, with prereserved seats anyway, you can even skip the annoying previews and show up right when the actual movie starts.  (Side note, I timed the previews the last time we went – it was almost 40 minutes! Ouch!)

Here’s the other great benefit of Fandango:  If, for some reason you can’t make it to the theater for the show you reserved, you can get a refund up until the minute the actual movie starts.  So if your kids get sick or you just change your mind, you can pop over to the site, cancel your tickets and either bank your credit for the next movie night or get a full refund (minus the processing fee).  It’s that simple!

And I just got an email that shows how Fandango and Paypal have started working together so that it’s easy for you to buy multiple tickets and have your friends pay you back!

 

Going to the movies isn’t the “cheap” night out it used to be when I was a kid, but thanks to Groupon Coupons, you can save a bit on your ticket prices with Fandango.

So, have you started your own family movie night tradition?  If not, why not give it a try!
