Innovative Mobile Ticketing App Offers Movie-Goers Ability to Buy
Tickets, Invite Friends and Order Concessions before Arriving at the
Tickets and Landmark
Cinemas today announced that Atom Tickets’ first-of-its-kind,
theatrical mobile ticketing platform and app is available for all
Landmark Cinemas across Canada. To celebrate Atom’s arrival in Canada,
everyone’s first movie ticket purchased through the Atom Tickets app
will be free for the entire month of April at all Landmark Cinemas.
The new social, mobile ticketing platform is designed to make
movie-going simple. Movie fans can use the app to purchase tickets and
concessions, coordinate and invite friends without having to pay for
them and skip the lines at the theatre, all without incurring additional
usage fees. The free app is available at both the Apple
App Store and Google
“We are excited to launch Atom Tickets throughout Canada in partnership
with Landmark Cinemas. Together, we’ll improve the overall movie-going
experience with ease and convenience,” said Matthew Bakal, Atom Tickets
co-founder and executive chairman.
“Atom’s easy and hassle-free process to purchase tickets and concession
items in advance, with the added bonus of skipping the lines once you
arrive, makes going to the movies as much fun as a great flick,” said
Bill Walker, chief operating officer of Landmark Cinemas.
“Atom Tickets will give Canadians a new way to enjoy the movies before
they even arrive at the theatre,” said Ameesh Paleja, Atom Tickets
co-founder and CEO. “Atom Tickets’ one-of-a-kind social features allow
movie fans the ability to effortlessly plan a night out at the movies
and make it a shared experience for all.”
Atom has made the “first ticket free” offer available for the entire
month of April in every market that has a Landmark Cinema including:
Vancouver, Edmonton, Kitchener/Waterloo, Whitby, Ottawa, Winnipeg, and
St. Catharines. Atom Tickets made its Canadian debut last month at
Landmark Cinemas in Calgary.
For consumers, Atom Tickets reimagines the most convenient way to plan a
night out. The app provides relevant reviews, trailers and synopses
information to help users make a decision on what to see. Then, with a
few clicks, movie-goers can seamlessly invite friends to the same show
and order tickets and concessions to skip all the lines in the theatre.
Upon arrival, consumers redeem their tickets by simply scanning their QR
code at tablets located at the usher and concession stands in the
theatre. For Canadian movie-goers, there are no fees, no paper tickets
and no IOU hassles.
