NEW YORK — AMC Theatres, the world's largest movie theater chain, has unveiled a $20-a-month subscription service to rival the fledgling MoviePass.
The theater chain on Wednesday announced a new service to its loyalty program, AMC Stubs, allowing subscribers to see up to three movies a week for a monthly fee of $19.95. That's more expensive than the $9.95 monthly fee for MoviePass, but AMC's plan gives access to premium format screenings like IMAX and 3-D.
The new subscription model is the latest salvo — and first major one from a top theater chain — in a heated battle for what the movie business most craves: frequent moviegoers.
AMC Theatres chief executive Adam Aron pointedly said in a statement that AMC's program is at a "sustainable price." Since MoviePass slashed its monthly fee, questions have mounted over the long-term viability of its economic model.
MoviePass has attracted 3 million members, but the stock price of the service's parent company, Helios and Matheson, has dropped from $38 a share to 44 cents a share. MoviePass pays for full-priced tickets and sells them at a discounted rate in order to capitalize on user data.

— Interested in owning a piece of a closed Applebee’s restaurant?
All contents of the recently closed Applebee’s Grill & Bar restaurants in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky — and one in the Dayton area — are to be auctioned off online, according to Biddergy.com.
The online auctions will include contents belonging to Applebee’s sites at 6242 Wilmington Pike and 9595 Colerain Ave, in Cincinnati. The online auction for both sites will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday June 25.
Property to be auctioned off include furniture, kitchen equipment, supplies, booths and more.
Those interested may preview items up for bid online and during the auctions starting next week at www.biddergy.com. The owner of the locations, RMH Franchise, which is Applebee’s second largest franchise recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Atlanta-based RMH Franchise, which also has corporate offices in Lincoln, Nebraska, purchased all of the Applebee’s sites in central and southwest Ohio from a Lexington, Ky. franchise company in late 2013, a transaction that more than doubled the number of Applebee’s restaurants run by RMH.
The local restaurant abruptly closed earlier this month.

— A real estate agency is preparing to open a new office in the Wright-Dunbar neighborhood.
HER Realtors - Vintage plans to open an office at 1024 W. Third St. on Thursday with a 4:30 p.m. ribbon cutting ceremony.
HER Realtors stated that Shannon Jackson, the realtor leading the new office, has long been interested in the revitalization efforts taking place in the historic Wright-Dunbar region and comes from a family of historians. The renovation of the building, dating back to the 1890s, was intended to preserve its original charm.
“When clients walk in, we want them to feel as though they have traveled back in time, complete with antique furnishings and collections,” Jackson said. “We want to create a memorable experience and an agency that is truly community centered.”
The meeting rooms are named in recognition of local historical figures: The Wright Brothers, Paul Lawrence Dunbar and Richard Allen, founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
The real estate agency stated it invited Dr. Floyd Thomas, a national curator and historian from the Dayton area, to authenticate their efforts.
Jackson and her husband Kurt will be two of several HER agents working from this new office and will also be recruiting new agents.
“Shannon has been a member of the HER family of Realtors since 2011 and has played an integral role in expanding our presence in the Springfield and Dayton areas,” HER Realtors Regional Vice President Anita Ricketts said. “We are excited to support her vision and partner with her to provide outstanding home buying and selling services to the Miami Valley region.”
The grand opening day also includes a series partnership with the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park and Greene County Lewis A. Jackson Regional Airport:
