AMC Theaters A-List membership

Before the Dark Times, I had an A-List membership at AMC theaters where I could see up to 3 movies per week for $20 per month. Not a bad deal, but I typically saw only about 1 movie a week.

AMC suspended this program back in March of last year when their theaters were forced to close, but they reopened their theaters during the summer at which time they informed me that I had till December 1st of last year to reactivate my membership. They have a weird rule that if you quit the program then you have to wait 6 months to get back in, so I don't necessarily want to quit, but at the same time I don't want to go back to movie theaters any time soon.

Fortunately, they extended the deadline twice. I have till summer to decide if I want to get back into the program. However, now that I have gotten used to watching movies at home, I'm not certain that I want to go back to movie theaters. I think that they are becoming obsolete.

For the last year, there were rumors that AMC is on the verge of bankruptcy. I imagine that this applies to many businesses. AMC is owned by Wanda Group, which is a Chinese company located in Beijing.
