LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--One year ago, on June 26, 2018, AMC Theatres® (NYSE:AMC) changed the landscape of subscription-based movie-going with the launch of AMC Stubs A-List. Today, on its one-year anniversary, A-List is by far the No. 1 movie-going subscription service in North America with 860,129 members. These members have seen movies in AMC theatres more than 20 million times since the program’s inception.
Said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Theatres:
“This one-year anniversary gives us an opportunity to reflect on the enormous success of the AMC Stubs A-List program. Prior to launching A-List last summer, we set an initial goal of 500,000 members after one year and a second goal of 1 million by June 26, 2020. Based on our research and best estimations at the time, those goals seemed aggressive but attainable heading into the launch of the program. Given the overwhelmingly positive moviegoer reception we received the moment A-List was announced, it quickly became clear the program would exceed those expectations. Indeed, we crossed 500,000 members within four-and-a-half months, and now sit at more than 860,000 members today.”
Aron added, “Equally exciting, A-List has increased moviegoing. Our A-List members have visited our AMC theatres more than 20 million times in the program’s first year to watch movies as they are meant to be seen, in theatres on the big screen.”
