    My A-list movie today was Mary Queen of Scotts. Liked it, but the strange Hollywood avoidance of aging make-up in the 21st century is evident in the last scene where the c.45 year old Mary appears to be the 23 year old age of actress Saoirse Ronan, which took me out of the film. Some grey hair color and a bit of wrinkle make up would have worked just fine. This lowered my rating of the movie from a B+ to a B right there.

    For the AMC A-List is there a limit of one movie per day? I know there is a 3 movie limit per week.

    I've never heard of such a thing. In conversations I've had with friends who have A-List, they've said they can see multiple movies in a day if they want to so long as they don't do more than three a week. This is all secondhand since I don't have A-List personally, but if they are imposing a daily limit, that would appear to be new.

    @Patrick Sun Thank you. I hope Patrick Sun or somebody else can answer that question.

    No limit per day. You can use all three of your weekly screenings in a single day if you would like. I often end up using it for a double feature.

    The only thing I'll add to what Josh said is that showtimes can't overlap. So if you're seeing a 12:30 that the last end credit rolls at 2:47, you can't go see a 2:45 showing even though you would theoretically not be missing anything (because of the 20+ minutes of trailers).

    I haven’t had any trouble doing that. As far as I can tell, the app requires showtimes to be no less than two hours apart. So it’s been totally okay, in my experience, with reserving an 8pm showtime and a 10pm showtime on the same day, even though the length of the movie plus trailers means the 8pm doesn’t end until 10:15 or so.

    Last Thursday I saw Bumblebee and Aquaman via A-List, no issues.

    This is not true in my experience.

    OK, well I stand corrected then. There were some posts I read elsewhere about a month ago that indicated that they had changed the two hours apart rule and now it's just that the showtimes can't overlap.

    Well, I finally joined AMC A-List program. I didn't join before now because the AMC complex in my city isn't as good as the other two theater complexes near me, but I'm going to try it out for $19.95 per month for the next three months. For one of my first movies I'll be taking a 120 mile round trip to see "A Star is Born" again in the closest Dolby Cinema theater near me. I've never been in a Dolby Cinema theater so I'm going to check it out this weekend. So now I have Sinemia and A-List which should cover me well cinema-wise.

    I think you'll love Dolby Cinema and ASIB is a perfect movie to see in that format.

    Just out of curiosity, what are the two other chains you normally go to?

    I retired last month (yeah!) and promptly joined A-List. This week is the first that I've managed to see three movies (Mary Poppins Returns, Aquaman, and The Favourite), what with the holidays and all, but I am looking forward to many more movies this year at the theater than in the past few.

    I have another question about A-List. Which day does the new week begin for your 3 movies per week, I'm thinking it's Friday? If Friday begins the new week then I might see 2 movies today as I at least see a couple of movies before this week's allotment of 3 expires on me.

    Today, A Dog's Way Home was my first movie using A-List. I wished I joined earlier in the week than yesterday because I would've watch two more movies using A-List this week.

    My A-list movie today was the silly and mostly bad Replicas—but for me it was so bad it was almost good. Almost. C+
