You are not the only one who has pondered whether it is possible to use a gift card purchased from AMC at Cinemark or vice versa.
It would appear that the answer is no; you are unable to use gift cards purchased from AMC at Cinemark and cannot use gift cards purchased from Cinemark at AMC.
Let’s say you have an unhealthy preference for one cinema chain over another. This could be a problem. In this scenario, however, there is a solution to the issue at hand: Regal Entertainment Group, the parent business of Regal Cinemas, just announced that shortly, it would begin accepting gift cards issued by both AMC and Cinemark.
This is wonderful news for moviegoers who are devoted to their preferred cinemas and need versatility in how they can redeem their rewards.

However, if you have an AMC gift card, you should be aware that the laws of some jurisdictions may impose a cap on the total amount of money that can be spent on movie tickets on a given day or week.
