CHICAGO, June 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Redbox, America's destination for new-release movies and games, announced today a partnership with DoorDash, the largest and fastest-growing on-demand destination for door-to-door delivery in more than 4,000 cities in the United States and Canada. They will launch an upcoming Dinner & A Movie promotion in the U.S., offerings fans FREE movie nights and $0 delivery fees* on up to three orders delivered through DoorDash nationwide. Both Redbox disc and On Demand streaming movie nights are included in the promotion meant to create meaningful movie and dining occasions that encourage connecting with family and friends this year.
Dinner & A Movie will be rolled out nationwide this summer, sparking togetherness over one of America's favorite pastimes. During this promotional period, Redbox is proud to partner with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to make Movie Night possible for families adopting from foster care. FREE Movie Nights will be given to the Foundation to offer the same special experience to the children and families they serve. The Foundation's mission is to dramatically increase the number of adoptions of children waiting in North America's foster care systems with the vision that every child will have a permanent home and loving family.
"We live in an age when people don't spend enough time connecting," says Ash ElDifrawi Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer of Redbox. "Simple things, nostalgic things, like dinner and a movie, can really bring us together. Our partnership with DoorDash is about value and convenience. But more importantly it's about purposefully carving out time for shared experiences -- and that's why we're pleased to be providing movie nights to the Dave Thomas Center for Adoption as part of the initiative."
Statistics support the need for shared movie nights. A Redbox Omnibus survey found that two-thirds of Americans miss the days when movie nights were a planned activity with friends and family.2 And 80 percent thinks movies are therapeutic, yet half are indulging in isolated binge-watching. Redbox launched Back to the Movies in August 2018 to reset the way we consume media in a vacuum and is now on a mission to create meaningful consumer dialogue around the power of Movie Nights in bringing people together.
"Connecting people with possibility is core to DoorDash's mission and our partnership with Redbox reinforces this commitment by creating an engaging new experience for our customers," said Matt Rotella, DoorDash's Head of Corporate Development. "We're excited to bring the Dinner & A Movie campaign into customers' homes nationwide this summer."
Putting Dinner & A Movie together is a natural fit. In fact, a recent Redbox study shows that 72 percent of customers pair a Redbox occasion with a meal.3 Together, Redbox and DoorDash will enhance this experience and make it more intentional and meaningful.
