    After talking to my friends we finally decided to see the movie. I say to the box office clerk:

    So, I'll get the four tickets for Inside out I asked for earlier.

    Is this correct?

    Is "Inside Out" the movie?

    Why would you say 'So'?

    I'd say 'Hello. My name's Batman. I reserved four tickets for 'Inside Out' online'.

    I understood that situation was this. He asked for the tickets; he then saw his friends and said "Hang on" and went to confirm this with his friends; and then he went back to the ticket box.

    In any case, I would ask for tickets to Inside Out, or maybe "Inside Out", or even, in the old typewriter days, Inside Out.
    I would expect to be misunderstood if I wrote inside out. This applied to all books, plays, poems, films, drama. It's a title.

    After talking to my friends we finally decided to see the movie. I say to the box office clerk:

    So, I'll get the four tickets for Inside out I asked for earlier.

    Would this be correct in speech?

    Raymott got it spot on :

    Yes, and then I went back to the box office and said:

    So, I'll get the four tickets for Inside out I asked for earlier.

    Please note the multiple times you have been shown the correct way to write this film title. Both words need to be capitalised. It's called Inside Out.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would use 'OK' instead of 'So' in your context, but I am not a teacher.
