So a AMC subscription. good Luck with that
Describe some of the storylines from the movies you like and you'll probably find they are similar to current movies. Love stories, sci fi, heist films, natural disasters, westerns, etc.

As a realtor, would you sell a house for or to a Chinese national?
Or do you just boycott movie theater companies that you don't relate to?

Its a minimum of a 3 month commitment when signing up.

My SO and I considered signing up, but since we typically pay $5-$8 to see a movie, we'd have to see at least 4 movies each month for it to be worth it. There's not typically a 12 week period where we are consistently going to the movies.

Plus our local AMC is at a mall that is about 80% vacant, so I don't really want to commit to 3 months when it could be announced at anytime that the mall, along with the AMC, is closing.

5. Could be good if you want to do repeat viewings of the same movie.
I'm always confused by this perk, the free upgrades. The AMC I go to doesn't have a medium popcorn and soda combo, and to buy a medium popcorn and soda separately is the same price as a large popcorn/soda combo. So the free upgrade is basically there for anyone who orders the lg combo instead of the medium popcorn and soda. Is my theater's pricing just weird, or is this perk for those who only want popcorn, or only want a drink?

AMC actually got rid of medium recently actually so you buy a large at the price of a small. AMC Stubs Premier has this perk already though...

The AMC I go to still has mediums, or at least they still did today.

After watching a video apparently Stubs Premier is included in Stubs A-List. I didn't realize that. That said, your $21 and change isn't included in your stubs points to my knowledge, nor is each movie you see.

Hmmm, I think they are phasing them out slowly.

Yes, A-list includes all the Premier perks, plus the 3 movies a week. You don't get points for each movie you see, but you do get points on the monthly subscription fee.

Did your theater always have the small option, or was medium replaced with small? The AMCs that I go to don't have a small option. Which I'm not surprised. With the Coke freestyle machines being out in the lobby area, who wouldn't go for a small drink and just get refills.

I agree. When I was growing up, our family and all our friends frequented movie theaters all the time, especially in the summer. Even into my 30s I felt as if there were always GREAT movies to go out to a theater to see.

I love the movies, too....and agree that viewing them at home is not the same experience. I'm just sorry that there are so few good ones out there right now to see. There are always so many from about Nov-Feb (Academy Award time) and then the quality drops off. The summer blockbuster seems to have disappeared. (Other than those geared toward 12 year old boys, which is fine, but what about summer films for the rest of us?)
