Fandango was an official Facebook F8 launch partner and launched their Messenger bot in May. The Fandango Facebook bot lets movie fans easily watch movie trailers, see what’s trending, and find local theaters – all without needing to touch the Fandango app.
Paul Yanover, Fandango’s President, is thrilled about the prospect of reaching Fandango’s 2 million Facebook fans with personalized Messenger capabilities. “The Fandango Facebook bot on Messenger will act like a personal concierge, helping fans instantly discover movies and nearby theaters, and for the first time, connect to all Fandango show times and ticketing through Facebook,” describes Yanover.
Using the bot is certainly more convenient than the app. You can swipe through convenient option cards to see all the movies that are trending in your area. Watching a trailer or finding the closest theater is just one tap away.
Found a movie you like? Fandango makes your trip easy to plan by showing you the exact location and layout for your closest theater. If you change your mind about movies, you can always see what else is playing by tapping “Showtimes”.
