The largest theater chain in America, AMC, has announced that it will now offer a subscription service. The new service is called AMC Stubs A-List and it will allow patrons to watch up to three movies a week for $19.95 a month.
Through AMC Stubs A-List, members can enjoy any available showtime, any AMC location, and any format, including IMAX at AMC, Dolby Cinema at AMC, RealD 3D, Prime at AMC and BigD. It will allow members to watch multiple movies a day and let you see movies more than once.
In a clear jab to MoviePass that offers a similar service, AMC also boasts that it will allow you to make up to three reservations at once in advance without having to physically be at a theater.
The new program is not yet available. You can sign up next week to start taking advantage of its perks.
AMC’s service is twice as expensive as MoviePass, but the perks and some different features should make it a good competitor. It kind of takes something from both Moviepass and Sinemia, and brings its name, as trusted go to place for movies. I’m not big on movies, and I’m not subscribed to either service, but they seem to be a of great interest to many people. And it makes sense, since it saves you a lot of money even if you just go to the movies a couple of times a month.
