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 this 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 would 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.
