New App to Change Moviegoing for Chicago Residents

Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind mobile movie ticketing platform, expands its service to moviegoers in more than 70 major metros across the U.S., including: New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, DC, Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Baltimore in collaboration with leading exhibitors AMC Theatres, Regal Cinemas and Studio Movie Grill. The growing list of cities with access to the innovative Atom app already includes Los Angeles, Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, San Diego, Kansas City, Charlotte and Raleigh. The platform will be available nationwide by the end of summer.

“We’re experiencing seismic growth with this wave of expansion to the East Coast, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce Atom Tickets to movie-lovers across the Northeast and the Midwest,” said Matthew Bakal, Atom Tickets co-founder and Executive Chairman. “In celebration of our launch, we’re giving new users in these markets their first movie ticket free. Try Atom with your friends and family; we think you’ll love it.” Atom_Screenshots_1

Atom Tickets makes it easy for moviegoers to check reviews and showtimes, conveniently coordinate movie outings amongst friends, and enables users to each pay separately. The innovative app allows users to pre-pay for concession items with just a few taps. Atom Tickets makes the entire moviegoing experience faster, easier, and more social than ever – providing a VIP experience that lets users bypass lines for tickets and concessions.

“We are excited to offer our revolutionary service to movie fans in these dynamic markets,” said Ameesh Paleja, Atom Tickets co-founder and CEO. “Modern day moviegoers demand convenient, mobile-first solutions like Atom Tickets.”

How it Works:
Atom Tickets re-imagines the most convenient way for users to plan a night out at the movies. Available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play, the app provides relevant reviews, trailers and synopses to help customers make the best decision on what to see. Moviegoers may then invite friends (via Facebook or their contact lists) to purchase their own tickets to join them. Atom Tickets enables seamless ordering of tickets and concessions from any Android or iOS phone. At the theatre, consumers go directly to the ushers and concession counters, where they simply scan a QR code at tablet kiosks. Paper tickets and IOUs have been replaced by Atom’s innovative platform, which keeps all plans, messaging, payment and tickets in one place.
