Speaking on this development, Mr Mohan Umrotkar, CEO, Carnival Cinemas said, “An association like this is a valuable addition to our website and mobile app in bringing the convenience of booking a ticket online with PayPal.

It’s a very customer friendly move toward more consumer choices, as they are able to pay using PayPal at all our locations across India.
