ArcLight Cinemas with Fandango for movie ticket sales

ArcLight Cinemas, which has a 16-screen cineplex at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, has just partnered with Fandango, which sells movie tickets for 27,000 screens nationwide. The move should make it easier to buy tickets to ArcLight.

Over 100 million people have downloaded the Fandango app, and the company is the number one seller of movie tickets in America. The ticketing giant signs the deal just as it is making an aggressive move into content, with its new FandangoNOW service.

Moviegoers may benefit from the partnership in other ways beyond convenience. ArcLight says it will host special event screenings this fall that may include movie-themed parties, prizes and giveaways.

“ArcLight is a theater for movie lovers and ArcLight guests nationwide can now look to Fandango to stay on top of the latest films,” Gretchen McCourt, EVP, Cinema Programming of ArcLight Cinemas said in a statement Wednesday night. “We look forward to working closely with Fandango to grow our audience throughout the country and provide our guests convenience and ease with their ticketing experience.”

This is a good development. The Arclight app is not very strong.
