Regal, a subsidiary of Cineworld Group and the operator of one of the largest and most geographically diverse theatre circuits in the United States, announced today that it has partnered with Flexa, a crypto payments network, to offer patrons the ability to pay with cryptocurrency.
Now, across its entire footprint of nearly 7,000 screens in more than 500 theatres, Regal is helping customers to easily pay for movie tickets, popcorn, and more using a wide variety of cryptocurrencies — from bitcoin and ether to dogecoin and Dai.
Through its partnership with Flexa, Regal is enabling payments using dozens of cryptocurrencies such as:
- Cryptocurrencies including bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), litecoin (LTC), and dogecoin (DOGE);
- Digital dollars and stablecoins including USD Coin (USDC), Dai (DAI), and Gemini dollar (GUSD); and
- Tokens including LINK, ATOM, Basic Attention Token (BAT), plus more.
Flexa is working to help Regal facilitate the acceptance of different assets, across many different protocols (including the Lightning Network). Also in the works, when paying at Regal with Flexa-enabled apps, guests will soon have the option to link their Regal Crown Club loyalty account for special rewards.
“Flexa is committed to helping merchants enable easier, faster, and safer payment options for their customers, and that’s just one of the reasons we’re incredibly proud to work with Regal, whose dedication to creating an enjoyable and widely accessible cinematic experience for their loyal patrons is second to none.”
