Regal Cinemas will soon launch an unlimited movie ticket subscription service in the United States, according to a new report from Deadline.

The service is set to launch in late July, and while the details are still being ironed out, it is expected to have three pricing tiers: $18, $21, and $24 per month. Each pricing tier will provide unlimited ticket subscriptions, and the pricing options are going to vary based on location. Regal has more than 500 theaters across the United States.

Those purchasing a top-priced tier will have access to any Regal Cinema (i.e., from Valencia, CA to 42nd Street in NYC), while the lowest tier gets access to about half of the chain's national footprint. If someone purchased a subscription at a low tier and ventures to an out-of-network Regal in a higher tier (like a major city), there's apt to be a surcharge (not final, but around $2-$3) on a gratis ticket.

Each tier also includes 10 percent off concessions and Regal may offer discounted pricing when purchasing a subscription for an entire year. What's not known is whether premium options like IMAX, Dolby 3D and others will be included in the monthly subscription price.

Regal's upcoming movie ticket subscription service will compete with AMC's Stubs A-List program, which costs between $19.95 and $23.95 per month depending on the state and provides access to three movies per week.

Movie ticket subscription options became popular when MoviePass launched its $9.95 per month unlimited ticket program, but that ultimately failed due to the low pricing. MoviePass is still around, but charges $20 per month and restricts access to some movies.

Next up, toothbrush and toothpaste subscriptions! Pay a slight upcharge for ‘premium’ and you’ll get mouthwash and floss as well!

I much prefer my home theater to going to the movies anyway. No whining kids, no sticky floors, and I can pause the movie at my own leisure to go to the bathroom.

We are entering an era of subscription fatigue. Besides, I would be shocked if many individuals actually spend more than $288/year/person on movie tickets.

I have AMC A-List and I have already seen about $100 in movies for $25 so far. So many good movies coming out this summer.

I was a huge proponent of MoviePass a little over a year ago until they screwed me over my annual subscI'llription and changed their terms midway though my year even though they promised me the changes would not affect me.

I signed up for AMC Premiere A List and I love it. I love that I can see any movie any time any format. The only thing is that the closest theater to me is a Regal, so this new subscription plan might be appealing to me enough to switch over. But as of right now, very happy with AMCs subscription service.
My experiences with MoviePass and AMC A-List match yours, but there are no Regal theatres near me, and three AMC theaters within a short drive, so I'll stick with AMC. But I'm glad there's yet another option for movie-watchers.

It will be interesting to see how Regal's definition of unlimited will change over time
