Remember When?

Moviefone Turns 20

Ah, remember the days of the wise and knowledgeable voice booming out “Hello and welcome to Moviefone!”? Before Fandango and hundreds of other online services, Moviefone was the go-to resource for film aficionados looking for movie times in their neighborhood. Seinfeld even based an entire episode around Kramer imitating the Moviefone guy. Today, the service celebrates its 20th anniversary (feel old yet?) and its parent company AOL is relaunching its site with a slew of iPhone and BlackBerry apps—and giving away 20,000 free film tickets in 20 days. One lucky fan gets free tickets for life.
