Entrepreneur Matthew Bakal Talks about Atom Tickets’ Innovative Ticketing for Cinema Fans

Enjoy Benjamin P.’s interview with Matthew Bakal, co-founder and chairman, Atom Tickets.  Matthew has a unique background that includes extensive experience on both the creative and financial sides of the media business.

Matthew has worked for Warner Bros., Mandate Pictures, Good Universe and IBM entertainment consulting. He has structured financial deals that balance creative ambitions with bottom line prudence. Previously at Lionsgate Entertainment, he oversaw day-to-day business development opportunities and strategic initiatives. Matthew wants more people to see more movies, and he thinks there should be an easier way for the industry to match movie supply with consumer demand. All this experience contributed to the spark that has become Atom and our successful capital raise. Matthew holds an AB in English and American Literature from Harvard College and an MBA from Harvard Business School. Matthew’s favorite movie is Caddyshack. But maybe Airplane. Or perhaps Animal House.
