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.
