“ALEXA, ASK ATOM FOR MOVIE TICKETS”
SANTA MONICA, CA, December 17, 2018 –Atom Tickets, the social movie ticketing platform, introduces the easiest way to buy movie tickets hands-free with the new Atom Tickets skill for Amazon Alexa. Consumers can now hear what new movies are playing near them and buy tickets quickly while using just their voice. Atom is the only way movie fans can buy reserved seats through this new skill. Another unique feature of Atom’s skill is its integration with Amazon Pay, which makes purchasing a movie ticket a breeze. Alexa customers simply use the information already stored in their Amazon account to complete the transaction. After the purchase is complete, Atom sends the consumer an email with the digital movie tickets, which they can scan from their phone at the theater rather than printing the tickets at home.

“Our goal is to help merchants and brands provide seamless commerce experiences,” said Patrick Gauthier, Vice President, Amazon Pay. “We’re excited to integrate Amazon Pay with the Atom Tickets skill for Alexa, making it quicker and easier for customers to skip the box office lines and buy their movie tickets using their voice.”
