One of the best investments we made this year was our monthly subscription to AMC A-List. For $19.95 a month (it just increased to $21.95 in 2020) we were able to buy 3 movie tickets a week, every single week. From our original purchase date on December 30, 2018 until December 30, 2019 we have seen 44 movies. FORTY-FOUR MOVIES.
We could see movies all over the country. When I travelled to visit my dad in April, I saw Pet Semetary. Michael goes to see movies while he’s traveling for work. We saw a movie in the middle of nowhere CT during our road trip this summer. It became one of our favorite *free for included* activities.
There was no favorite genre, and some movies we saw separately – but holy cow. AMC A-List allowed us to see far more movies in 2019 than I have ever seen before.
Coming in to 2020 I wanted calculate about how much each of the movies cost us in 2019 – They cost a whopping $5.44 per movie ($19.95 x 12 / 44). It was a great investment for us and an easy thing to keep budgeted for 2020.

For the first time last night I had seen a large number of the movies nominated for Golden Globes which has never happened before! Congratulations to all the winners last night.
I have a loose goal of seeing 52 new movies in theater this year. We’ll see what happens, but I think anything is possible.
