Harkins Movie Theaters

Atom Tickets and Harkins Theatres teamed up to deliver a premium experience to its Southwestern movie-loving guests. With 35 theaters, this top-quality movie theater chain can be found throughout Arizona, California, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas. It was all started in 1931 by a 16-year-old with a lot of heart.

Dwight “Red” Harkins left Cincinnati, Ohio, and headed to Hollywood on his Harley Davidson motorcycle in pursuit of a role in a “talkie.” His funds depleted by the time he reached Tempe, Arizona, he stayed and developed a Plan B. In 1933, he opened the State Theatre in Tempe, and continued his theater-creating journey until 1973. His son, Dan Harkins, went on to continue his legacy in the movie theater industry, and has won several awards for his work. Harkins Theatres goes beyond the typical movie theater amenities to truly wow its guests each and every time.

In the mood for a fully immersive experience? At select locations, Harkins Theatres offers the Ciné Ultimate Moviegoing Experience. Movie lovers can sit back, relax and be transported into the film via the expansive screen, Dolby Atmos 3D audio and a top-quality reclining seat. And, when you want your mind blown, see the latest in one of Harkins’ Theatres IMAX auditoriums. If you want to mingle pre or post movie, head to the Harkins’ In-Lobby Bar. The impressive menu includes craft beers from local breweries and handcrafted cocktails. Cheers.

Along with must-see Hollywood blockbusters and the newest movie releases, Harkins Theatres also curates a special selection of acclaimed arthouse and indie films. In the mood for an oldie but goodie? Tuesday Night Classics feature celebrated films from decades past at 7pm—for a reduced ticket price. Harkins Theatres also provides fans of all things entertaining a chance to see animé, concerts, boxing events and more on the big screen.

Harkins Theatres also invites its audience to engage in a backstage-pass experience. “Behind the Screens” is an Emmy-winning program brought to you exclusively by Harkins Theatres and hosted by Tara Hitchcock, a broadcasting pro who has interviewed many A-List celebrities—Hugh Jackman, Sandra Bullock and Morgan Freeman to name a few.

Calling. All. Parents. Is heading to the movies a thing of the past? You’re in luck. At select Harkins Theatres locations, an in-lobby PlayCenter is available for children 3 to 8! If you can’t get a sitter, this is quite the opportunity! The professional staff provides board games, puzzles, crafts, popcorn—and, of course, movies.

You can see how Harkins Theatres acquired such a loyal fanbase. If you’d like to frequent this popular movie theater chain as well, you should look into the star-studded loyalty program. My Harkins Awards is free to join and lets movie lovers earn points for each qualifying purchase. Plus, you can link your My Harkins Awards account to Atom Tickets, so you can still earn points when you buy tickets with the Atom Tickets app or on atomtickets.com. For buttery-treat enthusiasts, there is a members-only way to enjoy popcorn perks as well (no joke, theirs is actually award-winning popcorn).
