About Fathom Events

Events for Everyone

We began in 2002 as an experiment - a test to see whether the movie theater could become home to unique content beyond studio blockbusters and if one-of-a-kind entertainment events could draw audiences to cinemas on weeknights and other off-peak timeframes.

15 years later, Fathom Events is the recognized leader in the event cinema industry, offering a variety of world-class entertainment events in movie theatres across the United States. We give audiences the best seats in the house to experience music’s biggest stars, breathtaking performing arts, thrilling sporting events and popular comedy acts. We provide expert insights into beloved classic films, early access to Hollywood’s hottest releases and big-screen presentations of original programming featuring the top names in radio, television, faith and more. No matter your interests, we give you the opportunity to be fully immersed in content that awes, inspires and entertains – all in the comfort of your local movie theater, surrounded by fellow fans.

Our Network

Fathom’s nationwide events are made possible by our proprietary Digital Broadcast Network (DBN), the nation’s largest live cinema network, providing access to over 1,300 screens in over 875 theaters across the country.
