AMC Theatres Joins the Movie Subscription Game!

Last September, I wrote a post about MoviePass. It was only a few weeks after MoviePass dropped their price to $9.95/month and sent jolts through the movie industry. At the time, I was seriously considering signing up. I had some reservations due to some initial reviews I’d read, so I was waiting out the initial sign-up period to see if MoviePass would stabilize after the sudden influx of new subscribers.

By all accounts, it did. AMC Theatres stopped balking at the idea and committed to accepting MoviePass cards. After all, they couldn’t block all Mastercards could they? I even proclaimed that if AMC was still accepting MoviePass cards by the holiday movie season, I would be signing up.

But guess what? I never did. And let me tell you why.

To MoviePass Or Not To MoviePass

Have y’all heard about MoviePass? It’s the subscription service that allows you to see a movie per day, at most theaters, for just $9.95/month. Did you hear me? Essentially you could see 30-31 movies in a month for $10! Do y’all know how insane that is? The movies at the theater I regularly attend are $10.49. For 54 cents LESS, I could see a movie every day?

WUT?!

I heard about MoviePass when it first came out, but the prices was much more outrageous. They actually made a lot more sense, considering the value you’re getting. According to TIME, the monthly cost was about $50 for “unlimited movies,” when it launched in 2011. Which still only breaks down to seeing 5 movies the normal way.

Still a deal, but it wasn’t anything I was willing to commit to. But then, about a month ago, MoviePass dropped it’s subscription fee all the way down to $9.95/month, and I perked up! As long as you see at least one movie per month, you are saving money! I go to the movies a lot. Sometimes it’s an advanced screening, but always at least once. Most years I see anywhere from 24-35 movies. THINK OF THE SAVINGS!!!

Let’s Discuss The New AMC Stubs Premiere Program!

amc-stubs-card-premiere

I got an email, a couple of weeks ago, informing that my existing AMC Stubs membership was about to be upgraded to AMC Stubs Premiere. I skimmed the email, but really didn’t read all that much into it.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been enjoying AMC Stubs because it waives fees from every transaction, and I get a free movie ticket after every 10 visits. There have also been some advanced screening opportunities that I’ve enjoyed. All in all, if you went to the movies once per month, you made your $12/yr investment back. That was worth it to me.

Another Free Movie Screening Partner!

My post on how to attend free movie screenings is one of my most popular posts on this site. I’m glad! I’ve gotten to see a lot of movies in the past year and a half because of tracking the right keywords, and signing up with as many screening partners as I possibly can.

I got several AdvancedScreenings.com alerts today and they directed me to a new screening partner for the upcoming movie Hardcore Henry. This new site is stxtickets.com. I registered and claimed my passes. Now whether or not I go remains to be seen, but I can make that call next week!

So, if you’re also always looking to maximize the number of free movie screenings you can attend, it probably couldn’t hurt to sign up for an account at STX Entertainment too!

Have my tips helped you? How many free movies have you scored? Let me know in the comments!

I frequently tweet about screenings I attend, and get responses from followers asking how I always end up seeing all these movies for free. Well, I’m going to share, because sharing is caring, right?
