MoviePass Is Apparently Not a Fan of AMC’s New $20-a-Month Movie Ticket Subscription Plan

Within hours after AMC Theatres unveiled its new $19.95-a-month AMC Stubs A-List movie subscription plan, the people behind MoviePass — the $9.95-a-month ticket plan that apparently inspired AMC to get into the subscription business — took to social media to disparage the new plan.

MoviePass sent out a message Wednesday on its Twitter feed saying: “Heard AMC Theaters jumped on board the movie subscription train. Twice the price for 1/4 the theater network and 60% fewer movies. Thanks for making us look good AMC!”

MoviePass followed up a few minutes later with a second tweet on the subject, saying: “AMC has repeatedly disparaged our model as a way to discourage our growth because all along they wanted to launch their own, more expensive plan. We want to make movies more accessible, they want more profit.”
