AMC is taking on MoviePass with its own subscription service.
AMC has announced the launch of its new Stubs A List Plan. The upcoming movie ticket service will allow subscribers to see up to three movies every week in any format (including Dolby Cinema, IMAX, and 3D) for just $19.95 per month.
"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 3 times per week, for one simple, sustainable price," said Adam Aron, CEO and President, AMC Theatres.
With the AMC Stubs A List Plan, users can receive up to three movie tickets per week for any available showtime at any US AMC location in virtually any format, including IMAX, Dolby Cinema, RealD 3D, Prime, and BigD. Tickets can be reserved ahead of time through the use of a virtual card via AMCTheatres.com or the AMC Theatres app. Likewise, customers can opt to buy their tickets at the actual AMC location as well by showing their virtual card at the boxoffice or a ticketing kiosk.
The three ticket cap resets every Friday morning with no carryovers or blackouts, and subscribers can even use all three ticket slots on the same day with a two-hour gap in between each showtime. In addition, the service can be used to see the same movie multiple times. With that said, the plan is for one person and can't be used to reserve tickets for anyone else.
Meanwhile, outside of the three ticket per week allotment, the service also offers all of the existing benefits of an AMC Stubs Premiere membership. This includes free upgrades on popcorn and soda, free refills on large popcorn, express service at the box office and concession stand, no online ticketing fees, and a points reward system.
AMC's Stub A List Plan is set to launch on June 26 and interested users will be able to sign up via AMC's website. The plan will cost $19.95 per month with a 3-month minimum commitment and a 12-month price guarantee.
