I've got the AMC version and it's been great for the summer as I've seen quite a few of the summer blockbusters in IMAX. I'm sure that'll change as we move into fall, with fewer new releases, and then Oscar bait, which usually doesn't need to be seen in IMAX.

So, I can see how AMC would make money, even if I'm not always buying concessions. I'm sure I"ll be down to one or two films a month in fall, especially with baseball playoffs and football season. And, of course, Navy Pier is basically shut down from after Halloween until spring, so going to the IMAX there isn't as appealing unless it's a film that needs the IMAX.

Moviepass reminds me of a 1999 dot com startup with no real business plan.
