AMC has announced Stubs A-List, it's subscription movie service that allows movie lovers to see multiple movies per week for one flat monthly cost.

AMC's new service is about twice as expensive as MoviePass' offering, which charges customers $9.95 per month for daily trips to the movies, though subscribers can't view the same movie a couple of times or share their accounts with others.

Beginning Tuesday, the theater chain is adding a new tier to its current AMC Stubs rewards program called AMC Stubs A-List.

Theatres on Wednesday unveiled AMC Stubs A-List, a $19.95 a month ticket service that allows members of its loyalty program AMC Stubs to see up to three movies per week. Additionally, AMC's program extends to its IMAX, Dolby Cinema, 3D, and other non-standard format movies, and is good at all their locations nationwide. Will AMC Theaters lose money on this service?

Thousands of racegoers cheered and applauded from the stands as the Queen's carriage led the procession down the course. Prince Charles walked Meghan Markle up the aisle after her father pulled out of his duties due to health issues.

AMC's Stub A List Plan is set to launch on June 26 and interested users will be able to sign up via AMC's website. Will you make the switch from MoviePass to Stubs A-List? Also, you can see the same movie a few times, which MoviePass doesn't allow you to do.

The membership also includes all of the benefits of AMC Stubs Premiere including free upgrades on popcorn and soda, free refills on large popcorn, express service at the concession stand and box office and no online ticketing fees. MoviePass says it has more than 3 million paid subscribers and projects a user base of 5 million subscribers by 2019.

AMC is one of the first companies to follow up on what MoviePass has done, but there are still questions as to whether it will give MoviePass much competition considering it costs $10 more and it only works at AMC theaters. CNNMoney reported in May that MoviePass' parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics, burns through approximately $21.7 million each month to keep MoviePass in operation.
