On the Fourth of July this year, we decided to go and see the new Cars 2 movie with the kids. We have never went to the movies on a holiday before, so we (my husband and I) thought it would be a nice surprise for the kids. I pre-ordered our tickets using the Fandango Mobile App. on my iPhone. It was the first time I ever used this App. but it was really easy and kinda neat. I would love to share my experience with you. I did 2 step by step Intersectstories to show you how it works in case you would want to try it out.

I hope this helps you to be able to pre-order your next movie tickets as well. It is a great idea to use it for popular movies such as the new Harry Potter movie (out July 15th), where you know the tickets will sell out fast and also you wont have to wait in long lines for your tickets. Also, using the App from your phone, makes it easy for last minute movie plans, or even if your out to dinner with the family and are out of knowing what to do to make the night complete, you can check out what movies are nearby (even if your out of state, like on vacation) and order your tickets right then and there, and they will be waiting for you at the kiosk in the theater.
You can visit http://www.fandango.com to see other new releases coming soon to a theater near you.
Fandango Promotions: right now there is a promotion where if you purchase your movie tickets using Fandango, you will get a FREE iTunes download of the Tokyo Mater short film from Pixar ! Fandango always has something going on when you order tickets through them, so it gives the buyers a nice bonus.
Now for my families Cars 2 movie review
If your considering taking your kids to see Cars 2, I have 2 words for you, DO IT It is such a fun movie and keeps the whole family entertained. Lightening McQueen and (my favorite) Mater is back! I just love that Tow Mater, he is so cute and so dumb it is funny. This time around they go to Japan and Europe to compete in the World Grand Prix. Mater ends up (without having a clue) getting involved with International Espionage while Lightening McQueen is trying to win races against the conceded car named Francesco Bernoulli. My husband and older sons (ages 14 and 12) enjoyed the action packed into the movie. My girls (ages 3 and 5) enjoyed the races and “the girl cars” and they also love the funniness of Mater. I love the educational value this movie teaches children (in a fun way so they don’t even know it). The movie’s overall message of being true to yourself (Dents and all) and being loyal to your friends is coupled with an overt call for alternative fuel and environmentalism.
