Remember when you had to actually talk to a person to buy a movie ticket? Boy, was that annoying. Then they started letting you buy tickets from kiosks with your credit cards, and later you could buy them on the Internet. It's getting more and more convenient, but you still need a PC or a kiosk, and that, frankly, isn't going to fly. Luckily, Mobile Box Office has heard our frustrated cries and sent us an answer: movie tickets via cell phone. You merely point your Web-enabled phone to mbo.com and purchase your tickets, and then you'll get a barcode delivered to you that will act as your ticket. You just open up your phone, have the popcorn pusher scan it, and you're in your seats. Currently the service just works for Emagine Entertainment theater, of which there are two in Missouri, but you have to assume MBO has bigger plans for the future. Now all it needs to do is make a droid that sells overpriced Sour Patch Kids and our movie-going experience will be perfect.
