Movie subscription services have been around for ages. Starting with Netflix and other similar services with DVD mail-order options, we’ve now moved onto plans that allow you to see movies in theaters for a monthly fee. At the head of this service category is MoviePass, but AMC is looking to dethrone them.
MoviePass costs $10/mo and gives you the ability to see any movie every day of the week, as long as it’s a standard showing…and it’s a participating theater…and it’s the same day you want to see the movie…and you’re within 100 yards of the theater…and you haven’t seen the movie before. AMC counters that with the ability to see any showing, any format, multiple times, allows you to order tickets ahead of time, and more.
