AMC customers can now buy movie tickets on Facebook

AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. is partnering with Facebook Inc. on a new ticketing venture that will allow U.S. moviegoers to buy tickets from the theater chain on the social-media platform.

“We know people already use Facebook FB, -0.61% to find movies to see in theaters, and purchase tickets to them,” said Swapna Joshi, Facebook’s product manager for movie ticketing in a statement. “Today, we’re excited to add AMC AMC, +0.61% as a partner. This is another way we’re working to make going to the movies fun and easy,” she said.

Although Facebook already has agreements with online ticketing services Fandango and Atom Tickets, this is the first time the social media giant is partnering with a theater chain.
