Simply put, we are a Specialty Distributor. We are North America’s largest event cinema distributor and distribute special engagements that play in theaters for 5+ days. We bring a wide variety of live and pre-recorded content to the big screen and at scale. We’ve got something for everyone:
- Live concerts and sporting events
- The Metropolitan Opera
- Broadway stage productions
- Fathom’s Big Screen Classics
- Anime favorites
- Faith and Inspirational titles
- Fathom First premieres
- Series finales
We even broadcast live Q&A’s with featured stars, directors, and producers, all through our network of over 2000 screens nationwide. We call it the “DBN” – our very own Digital Broadcast Network, and it’s magic!
We started in 2002 as a test in a few theaters, and quickly became a popular alternative for on-screen entertainment. We’re owned by the three largest U.S. theater chains – AMC, Cinemark, and Regal – and we’re ranked as the 9th largest U.S. movie distributor in the nation.
Our content plays on the big screen for a night or two and sometimes for a week or more, but some unique added value always accompanies our content. Think concerts, boxing matches, panel discussions, and cast Q&A sessions broadcast live across the country in real-time. Some events even include a sneak peek into backstage access, talent intros, and behind-the-scenes bonus footage. We’re also known for bringing live talent for meet and greets and red carpets.
We bring a variety of content to the big screen. Some events play once, while others, such as The Metropolitan Opera, Fright Fest, and The Saint Series, are a collection of titles that play throughout the year and share commonalities.
Seeing a Fathom event is a terrific way to experience live shows and special engagements close to home without paying for expensive seats or enduring big crowds. Plus, you’ll have easy access to delicious concessions, a high-definition picture, and dynamic sound. No inconvenient parking, plane tickets, or hotel stays are required.
Our passion is cinema, and our specialty is bringing you great events to the big screen!

Unfortunately, not every theater is a part of the Fathom Network. And in some cases theaters don’t have the technology required to show certain events. The best way to bring our event to a non-Fathom theater is to let the theater manager know what you’d like to see so they may reach out to us to join the Fathom Network.
Unfortunately, not all theaters show our events. In addition, for some events, online ticketing may not be set up yet. Lastly, not every cinema within Fathom’s theater network has the technology required to show all of our events. We suggest checking back often as we’re always adding locations.
Easy-peasy. Check out showtimes and easily grab your tickets in advance at fathomevents.com. You can also visit your local cinema’s website or box office.
Once you purchase your tickets online (via website or app), you can either print out the email confirmation, or show your confirmation page right from your smartphone at the theater.
While we distribute events to theaters, we don’t sell tickets to our events. All tickets are sold by the theater (via box, office, website or app) or by a ticketing aggregator like Atom Tickets or Fandango. Please reach out to them directly so they may assist you with your concerns.
If there is not a “Get Tickets” button on the event page then the event is not on sale yet. Once tickets go on sale, the website will be updated. Keep checking back!
Fathom does not sell tickets to its events thus is cannot offer group discounts. Please check out our Group Sales page to connect directly with your favorite theater to see what is possible.
Fathom Events does not manage or engage in any ticketing transactions. Please reach out to the ticketing partner or theater from where you purchased your ticket to learn about their refund and exchange policies.
Fathom Events offers unique, cinematic experiences often paired with never-before-seen content that does warrant different pricing than a regular movie. Fathom works with the participating theater circuits to recommend the best value for your entertainment dollar. Prices vary across theater circuits and locations.
