Although there is no carryover from week to week, AMC notes that all three movies can be seen on the same day (with a two-hour buffer between each show time) and that members can see individual movies they have previous seen. The service will launch June 26.
"We believe that our current and future loyal guests will be interested in this type of program", said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Theatres.
Five months later, MoviePass stopped working at certain AMC theaters, including Empire 25 in NYC, the Universal City Walk, AMC Loews Boston Common and the AMC Century Plaza.

Unlike some of MoviePass' newer subscription offerings, AMC's new Stubs A-List places no restrictions on format - IMAX and 3-D movies are included - and allows users to purchase advance tickets as well as spur-of-the-moment sales.
MoviePass has caught wind of AMC's A-List program, which they caustically tweeted about earlier Wednesday morning.
MoviePass has attracted 3 million members, but the stock price of the service's parent company, Helios and Matheson, has dropped from $38 a share to 44 cents a share. On its official Twitter page, MoviePass accuses AMC Theatres of "repeatedly" attempting to sabotage them while looking to turn a profit of its own. Never mind that MoviePass is bleeding money with a completely unsustainable business model (while also pouring dollars into the universally panned Gotti), for AMC Theaters has launched its own rival plan, which will please the hell out of moviegoers and stands a better chance of sticking around for awhile.
Conversely, the MoviePass unlimited plan is still cheaper at $9.99 per month to see one movie a day, though the company has recently implemented cost-savings and anti-fraud measures like ticket verification and limits on repeat viewings of the same film.
Meanwhile, outside of the three ticket per week allotment, the service also offers all of the existing benefits of an AMC Stubs Premiere membership.
