How Atom Tickets Works: Atom Tickets re-imagines the most convenient way for users to plan a night out at the movies.

Moviegoers may then invite friends to purchase their own tickets to join them. Atom offers streamlined 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.
