An NFT is a unique unit of data that allows digital content to be logged and authenticated on cryptocurrency blockchains, primarily Ethereum. To qualify for the complimentary NFT, guests must purchase or reserve an advance ticket through the AMC website or on the AMC mobile app between Feb. 10, 2022, and end of day EST on Feb. 14, 2022, for any showtime of “The Batman” at any AMC U.S. location from Mar. 4 through Mar. 6, 2022. The ticket must be scanned in the theater to qualify.
Those who purchase tickets for (and attend) special pre-release fan events, including DC Presents: “The Batman” Fan First Premieres exclusively in IMAX on Mar. 1, 2022 (tickets on sale Feb. 8, 2022) and the AMC Investor Connect screening on Mar. 2, 2022, can also receive “The Batman” NFT.
“We are excited to fill AMC Theatres across the country this March with DC fans enjoying ‘The Batman,” said AMC Chairman and CEO Adam Aron. “Rewarding early ticket purchasers with this limited edition ‘The Batman’ will deliver fans more of the franchise they love.”
