Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform, is teaming with Disney to bring fans the ultimate Star Wars offering right on their phone. Beginning Nov. 28, when fans purchase their â€œRogue One: A Star Wars Storyâ€ movie tickets via Atom Tickets, they will be able to buy exclusive products only available digitally through Atomâ€™s innovative mobile ticketing app and website.
This venture marks Atom Ticketsâ€™ first entry beyond movie tickets and concessions. The appâ€™s exclusive product offering includes a â€œRogue One: A Star Wars Storyâ€ hoodie, t-shirt, girlâ€™s shirt and a limited-edition ticket placard (available while supplies last) that will ship directly to customers.
Using predictive analytics and modern e-commerce techniques, Atom Tickets connects theatergoers with movies they will love, helps them coordinate with friends and family, and now offers more ways for them to enjoy the film long after the movie ends with future offerings across toys, apparel, music and games.
The collaboration continues Atomâ€™s relationship with Disney, which selected Atom Tickets as one of nine companies for the esteemed 2016 Disney Accelerator Program, offering guidance, access, and opportunities to work with all divisions of The Walt Disney Company.
â€œDisney strives to bring the highest-quality theatrical experiences to audiences, and Atom has developed an innovative, social approach to ticketing that enhances that trip to the movies,â€ said Dave Hollis, head of distribution at The Walt Disney Studios. â€œThrough the Disney Accelerator Program, we were aware of and excited by Atomâ€™s potential to offer filmgoers not only ease of use but a little something extra â€“ and itâ€™s hard to name a more deserving fandom to kick it off with than Star Wars.â€
â€œBringing together ticketing and merchandise has always been part of the Atom vision, but we never could have imagined that weâ€™d launch with one of the biggest film franchises of all time,â€ said Matthew Bakal, executive chairman and co-founder, Atom Tickets. â€œItâ€™s been an honor to work with Disney through the Accelerator Program and weâ€™re thrilled that theyâ€™re entrusting us with this exclusive â€˜Rogue One: A Star Wars Storyâ€™ product offering for the ultimate Star Wars fans.â€
â€œWith this exciting â€˜Rogue One: A Star Wars Storyâ€™ product offering, weâ€™re introducing legions of Star Wars fans to the innovative Atom platform,â€ said Ameesh Paleja, co-founder and CEO, Atom Tickets. â€œAtom Tickets is the best way to bring groups of people together for a social and convenient moviegoing experience making this holiday seasonâ€™s biggest cinematic event even better.â€
The revolutionary Atom Tickets platform lets consumers check show times, quickly and easily connect with friends, order tickets and even pre-pay for concession items with just a few simple taps. Atom Tickets makes the moviegoing experience fast, easy and social â€“ recommending movies based on history and preference, enabling invitations to friends and family and providing the VIP experience of skipping ticket and concessions lines.
