AMC Joins Cinema Rivals in Stopping Netflix-Style Movie Pass

AMC Entertainment Inc., Landmark Theatres and Camera Cinemas refused to honor a Netflix-style monthly pass to their theaters, saying they weren’t informed of a trial of the MoviePass service in San Francisco this weekend.

MoviePass, based in New York, had been advertising a $50-a-month trial offering users one movie a day, and said on its website the service would start this weekend in the three chains’ San Francisco-area theaters. References to the test were removed after Kansas City, Missouri-based AMC and Los Angeles-based Landmark said they wouldn’t participate.
