Leawood, Kansas - AMC confirmed the long-running rumor that it would start accepting cryptocurrency to purchase movie tickets.
"As promised," CEO Aron tweeted. "We are jumping into the cryptocurrency game."
AMC is hoping that the price of cryptocurrency will outpace attendance trends.
"It kinda started as a joke," an AMC executive said. "During the pandemic when every movie theater was shutdown, an intern suggested we just put all our money into crypto to have a shot at saving the company. I guess the joke kinda stuck."
AMC admits that the announcement of crypto is far more exciting than the announcement of any movie playing in their theaters.
