CLAP BACK: AMC rolls out its own subscription service to compete with MoviePass

AMC announced their new subscription service that will compete directly with MoviePass.


June 21, 2018

 

AMC, the largest theater chain in America, has announced it will now offer a subscription service that lets moviegoers watch up to 3 movies a week for a monthly charge of $19.95.

Called AMC Stubs A-List, the subscription will function as a branch of AMC’s loyalty program, starting June 26.

Yes, it’s twice as expensive as MoviePass, but…

There are reportedly less restrictions.

According to the AMC press release, the online and smartphone-based subscription will allow members to watch multiple movies a day and let you see movies more than once (so you can catch a double header of Hereditary, you sick freak).

Plus, you get discounts at the concession stand, there are no online ticketing fees, and you can make reservations in advance.

Unlike MP’s one-at-a-time, location-only ticketing model

It was only a matter of time before AMC went head to head with MoviePass: Back in January, MoviePass dropped out of 10 of AMC’s most-trafficked theaters in what was seen as a “negotiating tactic.”

And no one puts AMC in the front row aisle seat.
