Solution Options

Fandango's data described above is available via two solution options from Fandango.

  • API:  Get real-time data via a web service accessible through REST (Representational State Transfer). The standard model of a web service is employed: a client makes a request through a REST URL and data is returned to the client as an XML-formatted stream of text.  Check out the API documentation for more information.

  • Data Feeds: Get full sets of data for each category via an XML feed accessible via FTP.  Theater, Movie, and Editorial Content data is updated once daily.  Showtime data is updated every six hours.  Check out the Data Feeds Specification for more information.
