    I just signed up for A-list. I can make that drive on the weekend, or instead of car pooling to work one day I can drive myself. The AMC is on the way home from work. I just have to eat the gas those days, LOL! I plan on doing double feature Saturdays.

    No thanks.

    AMC A-list is perfect for me and still packs plenty of value. Does anyone actually have time to see more than 3-4 movies per week in theaters anyway?

    Yeah A-List is still the better deal for me. But it's nice to see Sinemia staying in the game. I would think that might not be a bad deal for those who don't have access to AMC's in their area.

    I wish I had that kind of time, though there are also long stretches of time where there are no movies I care enough to see in a theater either.

    I still think they need a "medium" option that's in between "3 per month" and "unlimited." Like a 2 per week option or something. But they're getting more competitive for sure. If I wasn't right next to an AMC with Imax and Dolby, I would definitely be considering Sinemia.

    Speaking of AMC, as I'd predicted, those prices for A-List will be going up soon (for those not already signed up). Here's an e-mail I got from them a few days ago:

    So if you're considering A-List and live in one of those states with higher ticket pricing, might want to get on that soon. And for those who are thinking of cancelling and rejoining to get that price lock in at the latest possible moment, like MoviePass, they have that "you can't sign up again for 6 months after cancellation" rule. Because yes, I definitely considered doing that and looked into it, lol. At least I've got the good price for another 9 months though.

    I am locked in for like 10 months at my price. But even so, it is only going up 2 bucks for me. I can live with this, LOL. I have seen so far 4 movies this month with A-List and I am seeing 2 more Saturday and a bunch more this month on top of that. Even at an extra 2 bucks, still an amazing deal.

    The new price is still cheaper in NYC than a single IMAX ticket, and I've been doing IMAX and now Dolby like a nut with A-List. It's Still great to me.

    Yeah it definitely gives you an excuse to see premium movies. I saw Venom in IMAX last month and that is something I never would have done before.

    Oh yeah, I definitely won't be cancelling even when my price goes up two bucks. I see anywhere from 1 to 3 movies every week since I signed up, as many on Dolby/IMAX screens as possible. And here, those tickets are $18. So once I've seen two movies, it's already more than paid for itself that month.

    I wouldn't trust them. They keep changing their plans every few months.

    I’m shocked they’re still here, tbh.

    I forgot to tell you guys I canceled my Moviepass a couple weeks ago. The new deal looks interesting, but I wonder if that whole "6 months" clause is still in effect.


    But honestly I'm just waiting on Cinemark to get in the game for real this time.

    Not giving movie pass another shot. I'm waiting to see if Regal gets into the game, though considering their film selection and food i think Alamo Drafthouse would be better once it really starts.

    Alamo Drafthouse might have a better deal, but I can't imagine going there every time I see a movie. I usually get distracted by the food and the servers.

    AMC is probably the best deal right now for people that want to see a Dolby or 3D or IMAX flick on a whim without paying out the ass for it. The entire monthly membership equates to the same cost as a Dolby or IMAX screening downtown Chicago right now, so yeah.

    My family has a similar view on that but I can live with that since they have the massive benefit of being hard on cell phone users and just overall annoying people.

    Since i already have a-list getting a Regal one (if it happens) probably makes no sense because of all the premium screens amc offers in nyc. At least Alamo plays some films that others won't (Like Mandy and Border) so that's another appeal to it.
