AMC Theatres may be giving MoviePass a run for its money. For those looking to see all those summer blockbusters without breaking the bank, the movie theater chain has announced it is adding a new tier to its AMC Stubs rewards program. 

Starting June 26, AMC Theatres is offering AMC Stubs A-List, which enables guests to see up to three movies per week, along with the benefits of AMC Stubs Premiere, for $19.95 per month. Through AMC Stubs A-List, participants can see movies at any available showtime, any AMC location, in the following formats: IMAX at AMC, Dolby Cinema at AMC, RealD 3D, Prime at AMC, and BigD.

In addition to seeing up to three movies per week, AMC Stubs A-List members also get the benefits of AMC Stubs Premiere, including free upgrades on popcorn and soda, free refills on large popcorn, express service at the box office and concession stand, no online ticketing fees, and 100 points for every $1 spent for the AMC Stubs A-List monthly fee and food and beverage spending at AMC theaters.

“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,” said Adam Aron, president and CEO of AMC Theatres in a statement. “AMC Stubs A-List is AMC’s next evolution of delivering amazing benefits to our loyal customers, and we’re excited to continue to grow the program by leaps and bounds.”

Although the nearly $20 per month subscription is more than MoviePass’ monthly fee of $9.95, when you consider that a ticket for seeing a film at AMC in New York is currently $16.29, AMC Stubs A-List is already saving you money if Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Ant-Man and The Wasp are the only two films you see in July.
