Buy your tickets to The Lego Movie before they sell out on Fandango

One thing in life you cant do is disappoint the kids – well at least we try not to disappoint the kids. One simple fact here in NYC is that the movies sell out – especially great kid movies.  They’re few and far between when a good kid movie comes out.

We all knew The Lego Movie was going to be BIG! My son has been jumping up and down about the commercials on TV for weeks now. Well there is one simple way to make me look like a hero instead of a zero (if we show up and its sold out)… I simply use Fandango.

FandangoLegoCroppedTo help families and LEGO fans alike secure their seats in advance, Fandango has launched collectible THE LEGO MOVIE-themed gift cards, available at retail, exclusively at Target stores (and online at Fandango.com).  The gift cards can be used to purchase movie tickets onFandango.com or Fandango’s free mobile app to more than 22,000 screens across the country.

More about the THE LEGO MOVIE Fandango gift cards… they are available only at Target stores and can be found in the Toys & Games section amongst the cool THE LEGO MOVIE toys, also exclusive to Target.  The featured toys include 17 different building sets that enable children to bring THE LEGO MOVIE to life, helping Emmet and the Master Builders save the LEGO world from Lord Business. Imagination and creativity will run wild with these sets, which represent the most exciting and memorable scenes from the film.  Four different LEGO MOVIE-themed gift cards (including a Valentine’s Day card) are also available for purchase on Fandango at www.fandango.com/lego-movie-gift-cards

THE LEGO MOVIE, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and LEGO System A/S, stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.  The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.   Emmet is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Keep an eye out on Facebook this coming week as we’ll have a great Fandango Gift Card giveaway thanks to  @TheLEGOMovie and @Fandango  | #TheLEGOMovie and #FandangoFamilyRoom.

Fandango wants to send your family to see Despicable Me 2

Fandango-logoI love Fandango… I have purchased dozens and dozens of tickets via their website over the years – its a pretty standard thing in NYC – hundreds of people try to see a movie on opening weekend and there is only room for about 140 people in any given place maybe 300 if you’re lucky… but really going to the movies in NYC is an event – you first have to buy the tickets (for me thats where Fandango comes in)… then you have to get to the movie and wait… and wait – because you want good seats right? how about the standard arrive to the movie before time is now up to an hour and change before a mega movie and just around an hour for your standard popcorn flick.

It used to be you needed to get there 2 hours early to buy your tickets then wait – thankfully Fandango solved that problem – If you havent heard of Fandango – I bet you’ve seen their commercials its the great paper bag puppets.

If you don’t like the idea of buying your tickets before you get to the show (I’m not sure why I’m writing that sentence because then you most likely don’t read blogs) but you still could use their website for great things like Showtimes, Reviews, and Trailers. Fandango is one of my most used apps.

Its great to distract a small child with the coming attractions for some kids movie about to come out – like…. Despicable Me 2!
