LEAWOOD, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When AMC Theatres® (NYSE:AMC) (“AMC”) relaunched its AMC
Stubs program in the summer of 2016, even the most optimistic
projections never would have included a 700 percent membership growth in
less than three years in the United States. But with the Company now at
more than 20 million AMC Stubs households, that’s exactly what’s
happened. At the U.S. average of 2.6 people per household, that means
more than 50 million people, which is more than 50 percent of the U.S.
movie-going clientele, are enjoying the AMC experience through an
engaged movie-going relationship via AMC Stubs.
AMC Stubs had approximately 2.5 million members when the Company
relaunched the program in 2016, adding a free tier called AMC Stubs
Insider to the already popular AMC Stubs Premiere. In the summer of
2018, AMC added a VIP tier, AMC Stubs A-List.
The significant membership growth has played a large roll in the success
of AMC’s marketing efforts in recent years. Leveraging the knowledge of
AMC Stubs members’ movie-going habits allows AMC to employ its strategic
marketing tactics, including tailoring its e-mail, text and mobile
notifications to ensure the marketing information being shared is
relevant to guests’ interests. As a result of this unique insight, more
than 1.5 billion personalized emails, texts and notifications are being
sent to guests in 2019.
Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Theatres, commented, “The meteoric
rise of the AMC Stubs membership has created a program that benefits the
entire movie-going ecosystem, from our guests who are enjoying the
wonderful AMC Stubs program rewards, to our studio partners, who now
have an exhibitor partner that can leverage movie-going data to market
their films in a way that’s relevant and impactful, to of course AMC and
our shareholders, who benefit greatly from the increased engagement of a
massive consumer database.”
The program’s growth continues to be driven in part by the tremendous
benefits offered by the three tiers of AMC Stubs: AMC Stubs A-List, AMC
Stubs Premiere and AMC Stubs Insider. A-List and Premiere members earn
points equivalent to a 10 percent discount at the box office and
concession stand, free size upgrades on popcorn and soda, priority
lines, and no online ticketing fees.
Insider, AMC Stubs’ free tier, joins Premiere and A-List by offering
Discount Tuesday savings, free refills on large popcorns, and a birthday
gift for members. Insider members also earn a $5 reward good at the
concession stand for their spend at the box office and on food and
