Largest Cinema Chain in Thailand to Accept Crypto

The largest operator of movie theaters in Thailand is building a digital payment ecosystem in the country through a partnership with Swiss payment company Rapidzpay, the Nation Multimedia recently reported.

Founded in December 1995, Major Cineplex currently lists 143 theaters throughout Thailand on its website, 43 of which are in the greater Bangkok area. The group owns "678 screens, including 7 in Cambodia and 9 in Laos, and plans to expand to 1,000 screens by 2020," Forbes reported in May last year.

Among the group's properties is Thailand's largest multiplex, the Paragon Cineplex, with 16 screens, 5,000 seats, and an Imax theater. It is located in one of Bangkok's most prestigious shopping malls, the Siam Paragon, known for its luxury goods, floors of restaurants, an aquarium, an art gallery, a large bowling alley, a karaoke center, and a concert hall. It was also at the Paragon Cineplex that Major Group and Rapidzpay signed their partnership agreement.
