Santikos Movie Theaters

Atom Tickets loves its friendship with industry changemaker Santikos Entertainment. Founded in 1911 by Greek entrepreneur Louis Santikos, Santikos Entertainment was owned and operated by his son, John L. Santikos, until John’s death in 2014. The estate of John L. Santikos donated Santikos Entertainment to the San Antonio Area Foundation as a gift to the city of San Antonio, Texas.

That significant donation represents the heart and soul of Santikos Entertainment. Built with a committed philanthropic platform, the movie theater chain features a unique, and oh-so generous business model. It operates as a for-profit company, with the sole purpose of giving back to non-profits in the San Antonio area. The donations, sponsorship, grants and programming span across arts and culture, health, youth and education, and people in need. Santikos Entertainment is dedicated to strengthening the communities of San Antonio.

A quote from president and CEO, David Holmes, perfectly captures the essence of Santikos Entertainment. “You can see a movie anywhere, but every time you see a movie at Santikos, you become a vital part of our charitable legacy, because a portion of every ticket, drink or snack purchased goes back to organizations that improve our society.” That is…special. Really special.

On top of the unwavering charitable efforts, Santikos Entertainment provides movie lovers with a premium moviegoing experience. Guests can sit back and relax in luxury recliners and take in the latest Hollywood blockbuster in the most immersive way (IMAX, anyone?) with cutting-edge movie-viewing technology.

And now, the indulgences. Let’s start with drinks. Movie lovers can sip on signature, film-inspired cocktails, beer (local and imported) and wine (by the glass or…bottle!). If you’re looking for your go-to pick-me-up, you will be happy to know that Santikos Entertainment proudly serves Starbucks. The fun doesn’t stop there—your inner kid will go crazy for Coca-Cola Freestyle. There is a seemingly limitless variety of Coca-Cola drinks poured through this soda fountain from the future. Mix it up to your heart’s delight.

In the mood for a tasty meal? Look no further. The café at Santikos Entertainment offers delectable options including gyros, burgers, pizza, flatbreads and more. You can enjoy it in the dining area, or from the comfort of your in-theater seat. And, if you came for the snacks, you can, of course, enjoy the classics like buttery popcorn, pretzels, nachos and more. Oh, and there are free refills! Could it get any better?

We thought you’d never ask. Along with everything else we mentioned, fans of all types of entertainment can come to Santikos for an unforgettable experience. Watch football (live!), cult favorites from decades past, sensory-friendly screenings (lights up, volume down) and more.

This big-hearted movie theater chain seriously makes a difference. Feeling inspired? We are too. If you’re in the San Antonio area, be sure to use Atom and visit Santikos Entertainment to experience moviegoing in a completely different way. You can purchase tickets ahead of time (skip the lines at the box office!), reserve your perfect seats and invite friends through the app. Even if you’re not an A-list entertainer, we treat you like one each and every visit. Download the Atom Tickets app, try it out and let us know what you think.
