Mr Moviefone is hanging up.

For 25 years people called up to get movie times and locations are were greeted by the friendly "Hello! And welcome to Moviefone!" 

But the company that runs the service says it's ending the telephone operations.

Callers now hear, "The 777-FILM numbers will no longer be in service in the near future. But, we're still here to help!" 

That's because the app will still be working on smartphones and mobile devices.

During its peak in the mid 90s, the 777-FILM numbers got about three million calls a week, but the phone service has been in decline since then.
