The Movietickets.com app is somewhat similar to the Fandango app minus a few features. You have an option of creating a Movietickets.com account which allows you to purchase tickets directly from your phone if your theater allows it. You can also browse showtimes by movie title and theater. When you browse a movie, you are able to watch the trailer, view the poster, write a review, and find some general knowledge about said movie. This does contain banner ads.
