"MovieTickets.com is an online movie ticketing website founded by AMC Theaters and Hollywood.com in 2000. It is now a joint venture between the Hollywood Media Corp, AMC Entertainment, National Amusements, Cineplex Entertainment, Marcus Theatres, Viacom, and Time Warner. MovieTickets.com provides movie times for all theaters, and online ticket purchasing for all National Amusements theaters and all Clearview Cinemas, among other smaller chains (such as the famous Mann Theatres in Los Angeles). In 2010, MovieTickets.com sold over 16 million tickets for over 200 exhibitors with 14,000 screens.
Providing advance ticketing services to 150 theaters chains, MovieTickets.com represents over 50 percent of the top 100 grossing theaters in North America on any given weekend.
In 2004, MovieTickets.com became the exclusive online ticket vendor for Moviefone.com, after having entered in a partnership in 2001 that crosslinked their ticketing offerings. Then, in mid-2005, MovieTickets.com established a ticket distribution relationship with consignment ticket reseller PrintTixUSA, adding 20 movie exhibition companies to its ranks and boosting the total number of screens serviced nationwide to more than 10,000. Since then, however, MovieTickets.com has lost ground, losing the AMC chain and Moviefone's telephone arm to rival Fandango.
