90s nostalgia

Farewell, Moviefone

Hello, and welcome to Moviefone! is no more. According to the Times, Moviefone and its 777-FILM number are closing up shop. Perhaps unsurprisingly, not that many people still use the phone number; in the mid-1990s, around 3 million people called each week, but that number is now reportedly in the thousands. There's still an app, and AOL is planning on relaunching the brand in the near future, but the onetime staple of "I don't know, what do you want to do tonight?" is joining its '90s brethren in the great beyond.
