New app offers free movie tickets to Baltimore residents


Atom Tickets, the first of its kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform and app, has arrived in Baltimore and movie-goers can get a free ticket to their favorite film.

The app, which is available now and can be used to buy tickets for use at Regal Cinemas and AMC Theatres throughout the Baltimore area and down south in Washington, D.C., can be downloaded on iOS or Android.

Downloading on those devices will allow fans to receive their first ticket free.

Atom Tickets officials said the free ticket offering is for a limited time.

However, the app is here to stay. “The limited availability refers to the first free ticket offer. It’s available at all Regal Cinemas and AMC Theatres in Baltimore and Washington … Atom Tickets is making the entire movie going experience faster, easier, and more social than ever,” said Jackie Crystal, a spokeswoman for the company.

The company said its app allows for a hassle-free experience with the ability to discover new films, browse trailers, read reviews, invite friends, buy tickets and pre-order concessions.

More than 70 major metropolitan areas across the United States now have expanded ticket service for movie-goers – including those in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, Washington, DC, and Baltimore – in collaboration with leading exhibitors AMC Theatres, Regal Cinemas and Studio Movie Grill.

Additionally, 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.

“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,” Matthew Bakal, Atom Tickets co-founder and Executive Chairman, said in a statement.

“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,” he said.

With use of the app, Atom Tickets officials said they’ve made it easy for moviegoers to also check reviews and show times, conveniently coordinate movie outings amongst friends, and the app enables users to each pay separately.

Additionally, the app allows users to pre-pay for concession items with just a few taps.

“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.”

The app is simple for those who would like a free movie ticket. Simply sign up for Atom Tickets, which allows users to instantly search for films, read reviews, connect with friends, buy tickets, pre-order concessions and more, Crystal said.

The free app can be downloaded in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
