Atom is offering a free first ticket to all new users, which gives you a way to see your favorite movie without spending your money. The Atom Tickets app, which launched a few days ago on IOS and Android, streamlines the ticketing and concessions process the way that Uber and Via simplified picking up a cab. The app syncs with your credit card and contacts and allows you to pick a movie, theater and time with a few swipes, choose your popcorn or drinks in advance, and even invite friends along to the same showing. Once you’ve selected your movie and snacks, tickets are texted to you and you can pick everything up directly, no lines required.
