Fandango Pulse is a data visualization that pushes a subset of total tickets to its DV interface. Using the Fandango developer tools, I capture the batches of tickets and output them hourly to the files below.


I've been alpha testing the Fandango Pulse tracking and MovieTickets Top 5 tracking since Jan 30th of this year. I'm moving it to public beta now.


Now for the good stuff...




Fandango reports limited to FML weekly movie lineup. These require me to change the lineups on late Mondays/overnight on Tuesdays. Please be patient.


  1. Fandango report : cumulative ticket sales by show datehttp://akvalley.pythonanywhere.com/static/fandango_report.txt

  1. Fandango report with ticket purchase date, totals by day and by movie.http://akvalley.pythonanywhere.com/static/fandango_daily.txt

  1. Same as above. The data freezes before lock time for those players building predictive data models.http://akvalley.pythonanywhere.com/static/fandango_daily_locked.txt

WARNING: I will change these locations at some point in the future when I move them from beta to production. But, I will keep you updated as well.


Have fun. Don't overdose on this data. It's one data point out of many.

    This is ridiculously awesome. I've been trying to setup something like this, but my knowledge on these things is poor. Question is do I tell my friends that I asked for help on this lol

    One weird little anomaly I see from this page


    http://akvalley.pythonanywhere.com/static/fandango_daily.txt



    My simplest answer is teenagers making minimum wage at a movie theater. I see a few weird ticket purchases daily, but not enough to program write a routine around it. I think it's the returns/exchange process. Once a transaction is logged to display on Pulse the good (and bad) data comes with it.
