If you've never enabled the Atom Tickets skill on your Amazon
(and with more than 100,000 skills available, you could be forgiven for having missed it), now might be a good time to start. That's because Atom is running a killer deal: If you've never used the Atom skill to order a ticket before, just use the skill on an Alexa-enabled device to order a movie ticket and that ticket will be free. It's a great introduction to using the Atom skill for buying movie tickets via voice.
You can enable the skill within the Alexa mobile app -- tap the menu at the top left of the screen, tap Skills & Games and search for Atom Tickets. Or you can simply say, "Alexa, enable Atom Tickets."
Once it's set up, you can use the skill with commands such as "Alexa, ask Atom what's playing," or, "Alexa, ask Atom to buy movie tickets." Atom can handle the entire transaction, including picking your favorite theater, choosing the desired film, and even reserving seats. Your tickets will be paid for through your Amazon Pay account.
You can take advantage of this deal anytime before March 29. If you use the Atom skill to buy more than one ticket, the first purchased ticket will be free. For all the legal deets, check out the Atom Tickets promotional page.
