Oh, and when you use the streaming service, you'll be rewarded through your Stubs Membership. Say what?

That's right — according to the press release, customers who buy and rent movies using AMC Theatres' On Demand streaming service will earn AMC Stubs points. Members can use Stubs Points toward in-theater rewards, like movie tickets and popcorn. So that basically means I'll be rewarded for staying in and watching movies? TBH, it almost sounds too good to be true. 

OK, pop quiz: what do you get when you cross AMC's new streaming service with a bag of your favorite chips, your S.O., and maybe a few of your BFFs? A really solid movie night that you'll get rewarded for hosting, that's what!

Maybe you were planning on going out to the bars this weekend, hitting up a museum during the day, or having dinner with grandma at some point. But uh oh, it looks like you're actually staying in. This setup is just too good to be true.
