Santa Monica, California (May 29, 2019) – Atom Tickets, the social movie-ticketing platform, announced today it has partnered with Cinemark (NYSE: CNK) to expand its national theater footprint. Cinemark is the third largest national exhibitor in the U.S. and adds more than 4,500 screens at 340 locations to the Atom Tickets network, which now covers over 26,000 screens. The Cinemark deal brings increased screen count in key markets such as Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Sacramento and Denver.
The company expects to have Cinemark locations live on the Atom app and website by mid-summer. Movie fans will be able to book tickets through Atom for any Cinemark location while enjoying all the benefits of Atom’s convenient social ticketing platform, including reserving seats in advance of any movie for themselves and their guests; inviting friends via contacts; quickly checking-in for movies using a mobile device and eliminating the need for paper tickets.
“We’re thrilled to have Cinemark as our newest exhibitor partner to satisfy the significant consumer demand for this chain of theatres on the Atom platform.
