MoviePass sent out a message Wednesday on its Twitter feed saying: "Heard AMC Theaters jumped on board the movie subscription train".
The virtuous trolling of AMC is rubbing some subscribers the wrong way, though, in the wake of reports that MoviePass is adding what CEO Mitch Lowe calls "high-demand" pricing for very popular movies.

Stubs A-List is AMC's next evolution of delivering incredible benefits to our loyal customers, and we're excited to continue to grow the program by leaps and bounds".
