Cars 2 is opening this weekend, and Iâ€™m going to see it with my family. It has been a long time since the first Cars movie, and now all your favorite characters are back for a round of international adventure. Mater is my favorite and I have heard he has a major role in this movie, which is great.
I pre-ordered my tickets from Fandango, and used the platform Intersect to document the purchasing process. Check out my post over there to see the purchase step by step. Iâ€™ve used Fandango before, and it is very convenient to order tickets ahead of time. I print the tickets at home and can walk right past the box office line and into the theater. The other nice thing is that you donâ€™t have to worry about your movie being sold out, and since we are going to see Cars 2 on opening night that is always a possibility.
Ordering the tickets was fast and easy, the hardest part was deciding whether to go to a 3-D showing or not, since my family had different opinions on that. Once we agreed to skip the 3-D this time it only took us a few minutes to pick our show and pay for the order with Paypal. You can buy tickets for some features quite far in advance. I wanted to check and see if tickets for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (7/15) were available yet, and yes, you can buy tickets. In fact one of the midnight showings at our local theater is already sold out! My teens are insisting on a midnight showing for that, so I guess I will need to buy those tickets on Fandango soon. Other upcoming summer releases like Transformers: Dark of the Moon (6/29) are also available for purchase.
Right now if you buy your Cars 2 tickets on Fandango and you can get a free iTunes download. Plus Fandango has given me two tickets to giveaway to one of my readers. The tickets are good for theaters available for ticketing on www.fandango.com or any of Fandangoâ€™s apps. Fandango tickets to nearly 65% of the theaters enabled for online ticketing and 80% of the country lives within 20 miles of a Fandango theater, but make sure there is one in your area before you enter. This giveaway is only going to run for 6 days, so the winner can get their tickets and see Cars 2 next weekend.
