What is Tugg?

Tugg brings the movies you want to your local theater by putting you, the consumer, in control of booking even the biggest blockbusters.

Built around popular demand and social promotion rather than Hollywood’s top-down distribution model, Texas-based Tugg is currently in beta and “testing in select pilot cities.” Tugg has deals in place with the giant AMC, Regal and Cinemark theater chains plus a number of art house exhibitors.
