AMC Theatres now lets you buy movie tickets with crypto

Only online for now

AMC announced in August that it planned to accept cryptocurrency in its theatres by the end of the year. Now, you can buy movie tickets with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

AMC CEO Adam Aron made the announcement on Twitter, saying, “Big newsflash! As promised, many new ways NOW to pay online at AMC.  We proudly now accept: drumroll, please… Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin. Also Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal. Incredibly, they already account for 14% of our total online transactions! Dogecoin next.”

You won’t be able to use any of the listed cryptocurrencies above to buy movie tickets in person, as AMC Theatres is only accepting crypto payments online.
