    They sure are eager to hang onto their rapidly shrinking customer base aren’t they?

    Finally cancelled mine due to their Slenderman shenanigans. It was good while it lasted.

    I am debating if the AMC that is 30 mins further than my local theater is worth driving to on movie days. I am scouting it this weekend.

    Check out their concessions menu while you're there. My AMC's menu is awesome. :D

    I live on the edge of PA and MD, so I gotta head toward Baltimore to get to the theater :csad: This is why I stuck it out with MoviePass as long as I have, but now I am thinking AMC A-List may be a service actually worth it. Even if I just do the IMAX 1 time, it almost pays for it. I just have to suck up the gas cost.

    So do I, LOL! The prospect of seeing Avengers 4 3 times in one day every week is tempting :oldrazz:

    Aye, I've heard of that. Thankfully, I haven't received an email saying that...yet. Afraid to log into the app out of that fear it'll re-enroll me.

    Look at this description of the new 9.95 per month plan...straight from the Moviepass website:

    So the Moviepass chooses what you can see daily is going to continue.

    They are also now being sued by stockholders because they straight up mislead to them about how successful this plan was.

    I'm still hanging onto my moviepass and I have A-List. Moviepass is still good for my throwback films I see on either tuesday or thursday since those aren't AMC theaters and the E-ticketing landmark theater always plays the limited release films weeks before AMC if AMC plays them at all. For example I saw Three identical strangers, won't you be my neighbor, and eighth grade opening weekend at landmark so it's still worth it for me.

    I have put in my cancellation request with Moviepass. My last official day is Sept 4th. I will be switching to A-list more than likely. The alternating movie options offered each day was just a deal breaker for me. I want to be in the mood to see a certain movie, not plan my life around when Moviepass will let me.

    Yeah I've got TWO cancellation confirmation e-mails from them and I'm still not yet convinced I'm not about to be charged for another month, lol. Only reason I haven't officially signed up for A-List just yet.

    Well I am now almost 3-weeks free of MoviePass and into A-list and I must say I could not be happier about my choice to switch. A-List works perfectly smoothly within the pre-existing AMC app, which I already had as a Stubs member, so I didn’t even have to download another app for it! I just now no longer have to pay for my ticket purchases at the end of the transactions in the app. Easiest thing ever. I’ve seen 5 movies with it so far, 2 Dolby and 1 IMAX, all new releases (except MI6), one double feature...no problems whatsoever. And if I ever do have problems, it’s at least a comfort to know that AMC is a legit company I don’t have to complain to over Twitter, lol.

    Any frequent moviegoers living near an AMC should go for this, imo. I’m grateful for the 1-year price lock guarantee, because I suspect shortly after they surpass MoviePass in subscribers, that price is going up.
