LOS ANGELESDec. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Today Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind mobile movie ticketing platform, announced an unprecedented national campaign with iHeartMedia dubbed Free Movie Friday. The campaign, which kicks off this Friday December 23, 2016, will offer thousands of free movie tickets every Friday for an entire year across iHeartMedia’s radio stations and digital platforms. This unique partnership will treat movie fans through more than 500 radio stations in over 100 markets across the country.

Atom Tickets continues to build a strong user base with its convenient, socially driven service that is revolutionizing the film and ticketing industry. This collaboration with iHeartMedia will allow Atom to access the largest national reach of any radio or television outlet to expand its presence and provide listeners with movie perks they’ll enjoy. The expansive campaign will feature both on-air and social promotions that inform listeners about Free Movie Friday and the Atom Tickets platform. Listeners will have the opportunity to win a free pair of tickets to a movie of their choice at any theater that is partnered with Atom including: Regal Cinemas, AMC Theatres, Studio Movie Grill, Kerasotes Theatres, Emagine Entertainment and ArcLight Cinemas across the nation.

“We’re beyond excited to team up with iHeartMedia for Free Movie Friday,” said Matthew Bakal, executive chairman and co-founder of Atom Tickets. “With their dedicated listeners and unparalleled reach, they’re the ideal partner to introduce Atom Tickets to a wider audience of movie fans across the nation. We’re happy to offer those fans the chance to see a movie on us.”

Atom Tickets makes going to the movies faster, easier and more social than ever and provides a VIP entertainment experience that lets users bypass lines at the theater. In addition to pre-ordering tickets and movie snacks, the user-friendly platform lets moviegoers watch trailers, read reviews and coordinate movie outings with friends while allowing each person to pay separately with just a few simple taps.

“We’re always looking for creative ways to engage and reward our listeners with products and services that are most relevant to them,” said Greg Ashlock, iHeartMedia President, West. “Partnering with Atom Tickets does just that and enhances the excitement and social aspect of going to the movies.”

How it Works:
Atom Tickets re-imagines the most convenient way for users to plan a night out at the movies. The free app and website provide 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 offers seamless ordering of tickets and concessions from any Android or iOS phone. At the theater, users 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.
