AMC and Regal Payment Options Online | How to Buy Movie Tickets and Cinema Digital Gift Cards With Crypto

1 min read

Movie goers everywhere have been waiting for the cinemas to accept cryptocurrency. That dream has finally been made a reality. AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas are now accepting crypto as an online payment option.

Regal Cinemas accepts litecoin, bitcoin, ether and dogecoin. You can use any of these forms of crypto to make online purchases of movie tickets and their digital gift cards.

AMC is also allowing online movie ticket and digital gift card purchases using dogecoin or shiba inu.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC), aka AMC Theatres, is the largest movie exhibition company in the U.S., Europe, and the world. The company owns or operates approximately 950 theaters and 10,500 screens globally.

Adam Aron, the CEO of AMC Theatres, announced Thursday that amctheatres.com now accepts DOGE and SHIB for online payments. The CEO also gave a special shoutout to Bitpay which processes crypto payments for his company.

Bitcoin.com News visited the AMC Theatres website and found that Bitpay is now a payment option. With the integration of Bitpay, AMC Theatres now accepts several other cryptocurrencies besides dogecoin and shiba inu, including bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), litecoin (LTC), XRP, and ether (ETH).

Aron previously announced that AMC Theatres accepted four cryptocurrencies: bitcoin, bitcoin cash, litecoin, and ether. However, customers could only pay with those cryptocurrencies through their Paypal accounts.

The CEO has promised the crypto community that AMC Theatres will accept DOGE and SHIB payments since he put up a Twitter poll about dogecoin in September last year, and a poll about shiba inu the following month. Aron then claimed in November last year that he convinced Bitpay to support SHIB. The crypto payment service provider began supporting shiba inu in November.

Aron also said in February that the crypto payment option will be live on the company’s mobile apps by April 16 or a few days earlier.
