History

Established in 2014, Atom Tickets’ Series A funding was led by Lionsgate.[4] It was started by four partners, Matthew Bakal (currently co-founder and chairman), Ameesh Paleja (co-founder), Geoff Shaevitz (co-founder) and Adam King (co-founder).[5] Paleja says that the idea for Atom Tickets came about because he and his friends, "were frustrated with the experience of coordinating a night out at the movies with friends. Between planning the group and picking the movie, the theater, and the show time, plans often fall apart."[6] On February 1, 2016 they announced a completed Series B round of financing from investors that include The Walt Disney Company, 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate.[4] On May 21, 2018, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia joined as investors and advisers.[7]

Services

Atom Tickets allows users to buy movie tickets through their app or at their website. In addition to ticket sales, some theaters offer advanced concession sales through the service.[8]

In March 2019, Atom Tickets launched Atom Movie Access, a movie subscription service for cinemas that allows exhibitors to create their own customized movie subscription plan.[9]
