Behind the limelight, the entertainment industry has always been a messy, sometimes even ugly one.
But perhaps few expected that mess to extend even to movie theaters and tickets.
MoviePass subscribers have suddenly found themselves unable to use the service to purchase tickets at certain AMC theaters, and neither MoviePass nor AMC seem to be willing to give a direct answer as to why.
The relationship between MoviePass and AMC has always been rocky.
MoviePass’ business model, which let moviegoers buy a single ticket per day for a flat monthly subscription fee, may not have sat well with many movie theater companies, AMC included.
The two eventually came to an agreement, but it seems it was short-lived.
