AMC Theaters Subscription Service

Update: AMC Theatres has released an official announcement for AMC Stubs A-List. See the details below.

Update 2: MoviePass has responded to the A-List announcement and, as you’d imagine, they don’t sound very happy.

With its monthly subscription model, MoviePass has fundamentally changed the way millions of people watch movies in theaters. And now, the largest movie theater chain in the world is ready to fire back with a subscription service of its own, allowing customers to pay a monthly fee and see a select number of movies per week.

/Film has confirmed that AMC Theaters is on the verge of announcing their new Premiere A-List program, which will offer customers a new way to pay for movie tickets.

A Wrinkle in Time Oprah Storm Reid

Ava DuVernay‘s upcoming movie adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time has the potential to have a huge influence on a whole generation of young viewers. An organization called Color of Change wants to make sure the film has the opportunity to inspire every child who wants to see it, not just the ones whose parents can afford the price of a movie ticket. So they’re teaming up with AMC theaters to make sure that underprivileged kids get to see the new movie for free.

At the AMC Universal CityWalk 19 in Los Angeles – the AMC Theaters location that’s closest to where I live – a single ticket to see a non-matinee screening tonight currently costs $17.75 (plus a $1.75 convenience fee for ordering the ticket online, bringing the total to $19.50).

theatrical presentation

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get personal, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: AMC Theatres admits that they don’t care about masking, and why this is bad.)

We’re aware there are terrible things happening in our country right now, and yes, complaining about movie theater screens is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. But damn it, instead of getting overwhelmed by those things, cinephiles occasionally want to lose ourselves in a terrific theatrical experience. And when the world’s largest theater chain has basically admitted that they no longer care about the way their movies are presented to audiences, that’s worth grumbling about.

Whether you loved it or hated it, heard it or didn’t, the one thing we can all agree on regarding Interstellar is that it is a fantastic conversation piece. Christopher Nolan‘s latest film has so many moving parts, so many budding mysteries and surprises, it’s a movie that’s well worth visiting more than once. Now, AMC Theaters is allowing you to do that as many times as possible for one price.

AMC is offering their members an industry-first “unlimited ticket” that’ll get you into Interstellar whenever you want, for as long as it’s playing. Below, read more about AMC’s Interstellar unlimited ticket. Read More »

Iron Man 3 Falling header

Marvel fans’ plans to watch Iron Man 3 on opening weekend may be stymied by a dispute between Disney and the country’s two biggest movie theater chains, AMC and Regal. The exhibitors have halted advance ticket sales of the Marvel Studios sequel in response to an argument over how box office revenue is split.

If a resolution is not reached, Iron Man 3 may not play at all on AMC and Regal’s combined 800+ theaters nationwide. And even if it is, missing so many days of pre-sales could take a big bite out of Iron Man 3‘s opening weekend box office. Hit the jump to keep reading.
