iPhone Movie Night Out Does the Planning

NCM Movie Night Out App Launches for iPhone, Android

Free App Helps Users Plan an Entertaining Night Out Before, During and After a Movie

CENTENNIAL, Colo.--NCM Media Networks, a leading integrated media company reaching U.S. consumers in movie theaters, online and through mobile technology, debuted its free Movie Night Out application for Apple® iPhone®, iPod touch®, Android™ mobile devices early this summer.
NCM’s Movie Night Out app helps users plan that perfect movie night out on the town. With a feature-rich interface, Movie Night Out can help recommend a movie based on the kind of evening a user has in mind, with suggestions on what to do before and after the film. Movie lovers can take in reviews, watch trailers, search showtimes and theater locations, and buy tickets directly from the app through links to Fandango or theater circuit websites. Then, with Citysearch reviews and recommendations, Movie Night Out can also help users choose where to do their pre-movie shopping, have dinner, or even buy flowers for their date, and then finish the night out with dessert or getting together with friends at a local club.
Movie Night Out lets users find what’s playing nearby and now, filter movies by genre, rate and review movies, and save their plans. With full Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare functionality, users can also keep lists of movies they want to see, see their friends’ lists, and share their plans and reviews with friends. Be it a first date or a night out with the family, Movie Night Out helps plan it all.
The free Movie Night Out app is available for download from the App Store or through the Android Market.
“Going out to the movies is a social event, and people like to make an entire evening out of it. Our new Movie Night Out is a truly platform-agnostic app that gives users a way to pick a movie, theater and plan their entire evening, all from their mobile device,” said Ken Venturi, chief creative officer and executive vice president of interactive media with NCM Media Networks. “That old favorite – dinner and a movie – just got a whole lot easier!”
