“We continue to be very pleased at the brisk growth pace of our AMC Stubs membership base, and with the spring and summer blockbuster season on the immediate horizon, and the former Carmike theatres rapidly coming on board to AMC systems, we’re excited about the opportunity for accelerated growth of the program’s membership,” said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC. “The tremendous year-over-year growth of our AMC Stubs database continues to provide significant benefit to our entire marketing strategy as we’re able to reach more movie-goers with greater efficiency and precision.”
