Movie goers across the country are in for some exciting news. The movie theater chain, AMC, has announced plans for its own movie subscription service.
AMC is currently MoviePasses' most vocal opponent, leading to its latest challenge by announcing a subscription service of its own. Called "AMC Stubs A-List", their subscription service will allow members to see up to three regular movies a week for $19.95 a month. Yes, AMC's service is nearly double that of MoviePass, but it has it's benefits. Users will also get concession-stand benefits, like popcorn and soda upgrades and even an express service at the box office.
AMC Stubs A-List will include access to IMAX and 3D showings, multiple movies per day and repeat visits to previously seen movies...all things currently unavailable to MoviePass customers.
If you ask me, AMC's new subscription service seems like a direct response to the specific complaints that MoviePass users have made about the service's restrictions.
“We believe that our current and future loyal guests will be interested in this type of program, as AMC Stubs A-List rewards guests with something that no one else offers: the very best of AMC, including Imax, Dolby Cinema, and RealD 3D up to three times per week, for one simple, sustainable price," said Adam Aron, C.E.O. and president of AMC Theatres.
