Yesterday, I saw that AMC was trying to fight a company who is offering a subscription service for unlimited movie tickets for $9.95 a month. It sounded too good to be true but as a movie fanatic, it peaked my interest. The company is called MoviePass and their unlimited movie ticket subscription used to cost $30 a month. Which still isn’t bad in my opinion, if you go to movies a lot.
This week, MoviePass changed their subscription price to $10 a month and AMC is trying to fight back. AMC is threatening legal action against MoviePass because they say that the price is unfair for those who have a hand in making the movies. While I understand AMC’s viewpoint, I agree with MoviePass that going to the movies has become cost-prohibitive. This is why streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu have become so popular in the past few years. It’s so much cheaper to subscribe to these services and see movies a few months after they come out in theaters.
Unfortunately, the new $10 subscription plan with MoviePass is unavailable at the moment because of demand. However, I will be checking the site periodically to see if there is a waitlist and I will keep you posted.
