Open Road Films will be using the digital currency Bitcoin as an official form of payment for Dope movie tickets. This will be a first for movie-goers, and the Bitcoin fees are up to 3% lower than credit card fees. It is a marketing boost since the main character Malcolm in the movie is interested in futuristic technology just as much as 90’s hip-hop.
Open Road is partnering with MovieTickets.com and GoGoin to make things easier for the consumer, and you can even buy your ticket TODAY using bitcoins! Open Road’s Chief Marketing Officer Jason Cassidy went on to say
“Bitcoin is an integral part of Dope. We could not be more excited to bring this unique new opportunity to moviegoers.”
Dope will hit the big screen Friday, June 19. Be sure to get your tickets ASAP! (No pun intended)
