I think the difference might be that it could be a shorthand for "tickets to [see] the movie/game", or something, but honestly I don't know. ......

That is how I interpret it, "tickets to [see] the movie/game" and "tickets for [entry to] the movie/game".

As a matter of interest I Googled "tickets to" and "tickets for" and received 14.1M hits and 13.8M hits respectively.

Akhademik-san, sorry if we seem to have hijacked your thread. :blush:
