The pandemic has taken away a lot of things we used to take for granted. Casual nights out with friends, going to football/baseball/soccer/etc. games, seeing your favorite band play live in concert, and, for a while, movies in theaters. While movie theaters in some parts of the country are still shuttered, many are open with enhanced safety policies like reduced capacity, mask requirements and improved ventilation.  

But even with these new protocols in place, some still might not feel comfortable spending time indoors with strangers. Enter private theater rentals. To put movie-loving guests even more at ease, many theaters like Cinemark are offering fans the ability to book an entire auditorium for up to 20 guests. Prices start at just $99 for classic movies and go up to about $149 for a new release. Not a bad deal considering you’re getting the whole theater to yourself. What’s even better? You can book these private events at Cinemark Theatres, Century Theatres, CineArts, Tinseltown and Rave Cinemas with just a few clicks on Atom. 

You can choose what movie you want to watch from their selection of new releases like Freaky or Tenet and fan favorite holiday classics like Elf or The Polar Express. So, if you’re like me and always go to the movies Thanksgiving weekend, now you can get your “quaranteam” or pod together and keep up the tradition in a way that makes you feel safe and comfortable. We’re loving this for the holidays, but it’s also a fun option for birthdays, anniversaries or even just a special date night. It’s the perfect way to maintain your social bubble but also do what you love. 

Holiday spots are booking up fast so open the Atom app or head over to to get your Cinemark Private Watch Party on the books.
