AMC Theaters to battle MoviePass with $19.95 subscription plan
June 20, 20181 min read
MoviePass has lead a fraught existence. At first a seemingly too-good-to-be-true subscription scheme where a moviegoer could see all the movies he or she wanted for just $10 a month, it soon proved to be, yeah, too good to be true. The only one who hasn't accepted that is the parent company itself. It's been hemorrhaging money, battling theaters, and losing value all while trying to hustle some sort of profit out of the business model. MoviePass doesn't seem like it'll be around for too much longer, so you'd better use it for all it's worth while you still have the chance.
That said, there might be a successor to the theater-as-subscription service in AMC Theater's Stubs A-List, which will launch on June 26. I have to say, it looks like a pretty good deal, provided you have AMC theaters in your area.
