AMC Entertainment CEO announces a ‘Huge News’ for Dogecoin Fans. The famous movie theater chain is commencing “crypto payments for gift cards.” AMC’s CEO says now its customers can “buy AMC Theatres digital gift cards … with dogecoin and other cryptocurrency.”
First, in August 2021, AMC CEO Adam Aron shared plans to approve Bitcoin as a payment form for “online concession and movie ticket purchases” by Q4 2021.
