Stubs A-List is a web and smartphone-based program that allows users to see up to three movies per week for $19.95 per month (plus tax).
"We understand the comparison, but we're focused on our own program and on delivering the very best, most reliable movie-going value option in the entertainment industry, which is what we believe AMC Stubs A-List provides to our guests", the representative told The Verge. However, since it's only AMC theaters, users won't have access to a lot of the independent cinema that has been thriving with MoviePass. Will AMC Theaters lose money on this service? Since its inception in 2011, AMC Stubs has continued to evolve to meet the needs of its customers, as it did in 2016 when we introduced the free tier, AMC Stubs Insider.

AMC Theatres shares rose almost 2.5% on the announcement.
Theatres is launching its own $19.95-a-month movie viewing pass. AMC Stubs A-List subscribers will receive free upgrades on popcorn and soda, free refills on large popcorn, a free popcorn and soda on their birthdays, express service at the box office and concession stand, no online ticketing fees and an automatic enrollment into AMC's rewards program.
Since MoviePass announced its new subscription plan last August, it immediately butted heads with AMC. "Different versions of this type of program have worked well in Europe for more than a decade to drive incremental attendance and we feel strongly that given the choice, audiences will want to see their favorite films in Imax". Even though it limits users to three movies a week (no rollover), there's no calendar day restriction, and they can see the same movie a few times, which MoviePass users can't.
Meanwhile, outside of the three ticket per week allotment, the service also offers all of the existing benefits of an AMC Stubs Premiere membership.
