AMC Theatres, the largest movie theater chain in the U.S., will now accept bitcoin, ether and other cryptocurrencies for online payments, CEO Adam Aron said.
- Following reports in August that AMC would be accepting crypto for tickets and concessions later in the year, Aron confirmed that the service is now in operation.
- “As promised, many new ways NOW to pay online at AMC. We proudly now accept: drumroll, please… bitcoin, ethereum, bitcoin cash, litecoin,” he tweeted on Friday.
- He also indicated that dogecoin will be the next crypto added. AMC began accepting doge as payment for gift cards in partnership with BitPay in October.
- AMC has 593 U.S. theaters and 335 international locations.
