CALGARY, Alberta – March 10, 2016 – Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform and app, today announced the launch of their free app in partnership with Landmark Cinemas throughout Calgary. To help celebrate Atom’s arrival in Calgary, everyone’s first ticket to the movies is free*
The new social, mobile ticketing platform is designed to make movie-going simple. Movie fans can use the service to purchase tickets and concessions, coordinate and invite friends without having to pay for them, and skip the lines at the theatre, all without incurring additional usage fees. The free app is available at both the Apple App Store and Google Play.
“Atom Tickets helps connect friends together with the movies they love. We are excited to partner with Landmark Cinemas to bring these technological innovations to the moviegoers of Calgary” said Ameesh Paleja, Atom Tickets co-founder and CEO.
“The Atom Tickets mobile ticketing platform and app make movie-going easy,” said Bill Walker, Chief Operating Officer Landmark Cinemas, “and provides movie-lovers with the ability to conveniently plan their night at the movies with family and friends.”
“We are thrilled to introduce the Atom Tickets app to Calgarians through our partnership with Landmark Cinemas.

For consumers, Atom Tickets reimagines the most convenient way to plan a night out. The app provides relevant reviews, trailers and synopses information to help make a decision on what to see. Then, with a few clicks, movie-goers can seamlessly invite friends to the same show and order tickets and concessions, to skip all the lines in the theatre. At the theatre, consumers go to the usher and concession stands where they scan their QR codes at simple tablet scanners. For Calgary movie-goers, there are no fees, no paper tickets and no IOUs.
Additionally, when customers use the promo code “HEALTH” at checkout, Atom Tickets will donate 10% of the ticket purchase to the Calgary Health Trust. Their work benefits area hospitals, community programs and long-term care centres. The philanthropic partnership launches March 10 and will run through June 10.
