Dealflicks logoMovie theater deals app Dealflicks has raised $1.7 million in new Seed funding from a group that includes Sierra Maya Ventures, Mogility Capital, Be Great Partners, Wefunder and Rubicon Venture Capital. The San Francisco-based startup describes its service as the “Priceline for movie tickets,” giving movie goers discounts on tickets and concessions by partnering with movie theaters to help them fill more empty seats during slow periods—adding extra revenue that the theaters otherwise would not have earned.

It was founded in 2011 by Kevin Hong, Sean Wycliffe and Zachary Cancio. The team previously raised more than $850,000 in Seed funding, and participated in 500 Startups’ Fall 2012 batch and Media Camp L.A. 2013.
