Movie Subscription Services Compete for Your Dollars

It's finally a good time to be a moviegoer in the US, as startups MoviePass and Sinemia are making it more affordable to see films. Moviepass allows its members to see one movie per day for $9.95 and Sinemia for $4.99/month allows members to see 1-2 movies a month. Moviepass' success has led theater chains to join the competition by launching services in the US as well. Cinemark announced a subscription service called Movie Club in late 2017, and AMC—the nation’s largest theater chain—is rolling out a subscription service called AMC Stubs A-List that allows members to see up to 12 movies per month for $19.95 per month. Cinemark’s Movie Club, which borders on a loyalty program, and at $8.99 a month, it includes one 2D showing at Cinemark locations per month and 20% off concessions. 

Companies mentioned (YTD): Helios and Matheson (-95%), Cinemark (+3%), AMC (+10%)
