Making Family Memories With Fandango! #FandangoFamily @Fandango #Sponsored



    Going to the movies as a family is something that we love to do.  Not only are we all huge movie buffs, but we also love to spend time together making memories.  Recently, we planned one of these treasured outings to see Big Hero 6 with the kids.  My husband and I knew that this would be the perfect film to go see with our boys because it features a lovable robot named Baymax that performs some heroic acts with his group of friends.

    One of my favorite things is seeing my sons’ reactions when we are watching movies.  During Big Hero 6, they were sitting up on the edge of their seats as Hiro Hamada and Baymax band together with their techie friends to save San Fransokyo from the evil plot that threatens the entire city and its inhabitants.


    I especially loved the messages of friendship that the film portrayed.  After all, Baymax was designed to take care of people and he never faltered from his responsibilities as a friend and protector.  He immediately became my sons’ favorite character and this made me very happy because he has so many positive qualities that we were able to talk about including his desire to heal and help his friends.

    After the movie, I asked my sons what characteristics make up a hero.  My older son said that, “A hero should be strong, determined, and never stop persevering.”  My younger son stated that Baymax was a hero because, “He cared for others and didn’t only focus on himself.”  They both loved that Baymax and shared that their favorite quote from the film was when he lifted his arms and said, “My hands are equipped with defibrillators,” in response to Hiro saying Baymax almost gave him a heart attack.


    This season, we are very excited about letting Fandango help us plan more of our memorable family movie nights.  It has never been easier to watch trailers, read reviews, find movie show times,  and buy movie tickets in advance.  Make sure you head to the movies with your family and let Fandango assist you in planning your next movie adventure!

Let’s Discuss:  What film have you seen with your family at the movie theater lately and what was so memorable about this outing?

    We love using Fandango! It’s such an easy way to go to the movies with our big family.

  2. We have used this service as well and it is very convenient. My sister in law just took my oldest to see this film and they loved it.

  3. We saw Big Hero 6 a few weeks ago and LOVED it. Next up is the Penguins of Madagascar! We are excited for that one.

  4. I cannot wait to see Big Hero 6, we haven’t been the cinema in ages, we should really go again soon 🙂 x

  5. Jennifer Williams says

    I can not wait to see this with my son. We have to wait for DVD’s though because my son has an issue with loud sounds – hopefully it will be out quickly so we can see it.

  6. I so want to get my hands on one of those displays and make it into a Halloween costume next year!

  7. There has been so much hype about this movie, and I must say I still don’t know what it is about. I haven’t seen any preview for it.

  8. I can’t wait to see this movie! It looks really awesome, I know the kids and I will love it

  9. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    My Grandson would love to see this. I think he would be thrilled to go to the movies with his Grandma and Grandpa.

  10. We haven’t taken our son to the movies yet. (He’s 3.) I’m hoping that sometime in the next few months we’ll make that activity happen!

  11. We go to the movies a lot and our latest has been Penguins of Madagascar which was super funny. I used to use Fandango a lot when I lived in NY but haven’t used them here since I’ve been here. My movie theatre is only 5 minutes away. 🙂

  12. We saw this over the weekend. The scene you mentioned was funny. I was impressed with the ending…and I won’t make a spoiler by saying it here, but it was a cool twist.

  13. The latest movie we watched at the theaters was Big Hero 6 too. We really liked it, and it is always so much fun to go to the actual theater

  14. Lois Alter Mark says

    Your kids are adorable, and Big Hero 6 looks like a great movie. I love Fandango and use it all the time.

  15. Big Hero 6 will definitely be a good one – I already have heard so much about it as well.

    What a beautiful looking theater. I have to think about that we don’t get to that many movies but I have heard about this fandango only wish it was available in Canada. I think the last one we saw the family was actually the box trolls. And I very much agree with you seeing a movie as a family and watching the experience on the kids faces is just precious. Also I sometimes get joy out of just watching my husband laugh at a movie.

  17. Melissa Smith says

    I just recently got hooked on Fandango! I can’t believe it took me this long!

  18. My family loves going to movies on the weekend. Surprisingly, my oldest niece wanted to see Fury so I took her to see that. We really enjoyed it! Totally not a movie for younger kids though.

  19. I love fandango. It is so easy to use too!

  20. As a family we love to watch movies too. However, my girls saw this movie with their one of our a family friend and their kids. They loved it and when they got back they recited the story to me and my husband.

    We loved Big Hero 6 and think it’s a great movie for families to enjoy. My son and I keep doing the fit bump. Good to see you and your family were able to enjoy together.

  22. Can’t wait to see this one. We always order our tickets ahead of time!
