AMC Theatres for iPhone tells you about current and upcoming movies, lets you purchase advance tickets and concession-stand favorites, and gives you easy access to your AMC Stubs rewards account.
Movie showtimes and so much more: On the default See a Movie tab, you can learn when your preferred movie is playing, whether it's currently showing or coming out in the near future. If you don't have a specific film in mind, you can also scroll through a list of popular movies. Tap any movie to get official trailers, movie and cast info, and expert film ratings.
Find the AMC theatre nearest you: Enter the name of your favorite theatre or find the theatre closest to you on the Our Theatres tab. Enable location sharing to display your closest theatres up top. Here you can also figure out which theatres offer Dolby Cinema, IMAX, and RealD 3D upgrades.
Skip the ticket line: Tap any movie to purchase tickets for now or later. Tap the calendar to select your date, then the location icon for your preferred theatre, and finally Premium Offerings to select upgrades, such as Dolby Cinema or IMAX. Then select your seat on the map, choose an adult, child, or senior ticket, and input your payment. Now, rather than risking a sold-out show, you'll be certain to have a ticket.
Avoid the concession stand line: Tap the Food & Drinks tab to order concessions in advance. Just select your theatre from the list of participating theatres, order your food, and depending on availability, you can enjoy an expedited express pickup at the concession stand or even schedule a delivery to your theatre seat.
All in one place: Rather than carrying tickets and your AMC Stubs rewards card, you can just pull all that up under the My AMC tab, as well as your upcoming movies, reminders for movies you want to see, and special offers.
AMC Stubs: Join in the app or link your free AMC Stubs Insider account to the app, and get access to your virtual membership card, which you can then add to your mobile wallet. You'll enjoy benefits like free refills on large popcorns, $5 tickets on Tuesdays, and free popcorn on your birthday. Select a favorite theatre to access VIP lines. You can also upgrade to the Premiere package for $15 and get even more perks, such as 5 times as many points per $1 spent, waived online ticketing fees, concession size upgrades, and more. AMC Theatres has also introduced an AMC Stubs A-List package, which expands upon the Premiere bundle to also include three free movies every week in Dolby Cinema, IMAX, RealD 3D, or digital. AMC Stubs A-List costs $19.95 a month and requires a three-month commitment. You can also track your AMC Stubs points and rewards here.
AMC only: With the Fandango app, for example, you can purchase tickets for AMC Theatres as well as competing theatres, such as Regal, Cinemark, and Carmike. But with the AMC Theatres app, you're, not surprisingly, limited to just AMC Theatres.
Online convenience fee: You must pay a small convenience fee if you order your movie ticket in advance. But if you are an AMC Stubs Insider, your fee is waived if you purchase four or more tickets at a time. If you're an AMC Stubs Premiere member, your fee is always waived.
If you're a regular AMC Theatres customer and maintain an AMC Stubs account, then this app is a necessity as it keeps all of your info in one place and helps you avoid the often lengthy ticket and concession stand lines by enabling advance purchases.
