From making movies to watching them, Tritons are shaping the face of entertainment. Ameesh Paleja ’01 has set out to revolutionize moviegoing with Atom Tickets, a first-of-its-kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform and app that combines ticket and concession preorders with the ability to invite friends via social integration.
“Going to the movies with a group of friends can be a hassle, between picking a day and showtime, finding a theater,” says Paleja, Atom Tickets CEO and co-founder. “Our product is designed to make that process easier.”
In the past year the company’s momentum has surged thanks to partnerships with Regal Cinemas and AMC Theatres. Now covering 50 percent of the theater industry, Paleja aims to bring Atom Tickets to all theaters across North America, taking on well-established competitors. Yet unlike Fandango and Movietickets.com, Atom Tickets is the only solution that offers personalization, recommendations and social connections that let users coordinate and invite friends without having to pay for them.
“Those companies are media companies attacking the ticketing problem,” says Paleja. “We are a tech company attacking the ticket problem.”
Atom Tickets is a free app, available in most app stores.
