I've seen anywhere in my area from $2 and change, something like $2.43, up to $6.00. Majority of which have been from $4 to $6 when I check. I've seen screen shots of $8 surcharges but haven't seen those in the app myself.


I think last week when I checked it was $4 and change. I've never gone to a showing with surge pricing (I avoid it at all costs) but I was curious what they were charging.

Thanks for the info. I don't like crowded theaters so I should be able to easily avoid it.

I was able to purchase my ticket tonight to THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME without any problems. MoviePass still works and no surge pricing either.

^^ Last night I checked movie pass and tons of showtimes were not even listed on the app at several theaters.

Re: AMC A-List

AMC's CEO made this comment during the Q and A section of their Q2 Earnings call this morning:

"There are those that speculated that we did this merely as a competitive response, and that we were not wed to it, but given the compelling enrollment in A-List in just a few weeks, this program will be a permanent feature of AMC. We do think it will be a small program, one day maybe it will get up to 10% of tickets sold through A-List, like 10% of tickets sold through Limitless in the UK"

"We will be managing and monitoring this program extremely closely over the months ahead" - when asked about managing profits with A-List.


The program will probably change over time, and have different cost structures,etc, but looks like it's around for a while anyway.

This is true for me this morning, as well.
