Valentine’s Movie Date Night from Fandango

by Dawn

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved going to the movies. Back then, my dad would drop me and my friends at the theater, and after loading up on the sweets and popcorn, our crew would settle into one of the last rows and obnoxiously giggle our way through the latest comedy. Nowadays, there’s a bit more planning necessary, but I still try to make it happen every once in a while. Once the babysitter arrives and the kids are settled for their own evening of fun at home, my husband indulges my love of the big screen by accompanying me to the latest comedy, sometimes even willingly heading to a romantic-comedy. I’m still an obnoxious giggler all these years later!

When planning a date night with your partner or heading out with your pals, Fandango can help get you in your theater seat quickly! Buy your tickets online ahead of time, and all you need to do is hit the snack bar before settling in for your flick.

Spoil your sweetie with a Valentine’s Day gift card from Fandango.  Fandango will make sure you get your movie tickets…the kiss is up to you!

We’re happy to have a Fandango prize pack for one lucky reader– a $30 Fandango gift card and a $50 Visa gift card. Dinner and a movie; it’s a date night tradition for a reason! Follow the directions below to enter the giveaway.
