#MotownMom: Joined A-List and LOVE IT! Well Worth the Cost and Highly Recommend! #MovieBuffs UNITE!

AMC Stubs® Premiere™ 

I am a die hard movie lover. I have always been and when Moviepass was first launched I ALMOST jumped on the bandwagon.

But I didn’t and I’m glad I waited.

Actually, I thought Amazon was going to buy a whole slew of movie theatres and just allow Prime members to go for free.

That didn’t happen.

But the next favorite thing happened.

AMC came out with A-List

What’s A-List? 

See up to 3 movies every week in Dolby Cinema, IMAX, RealD 3D & more. Plus, get star status and the same perks as AMC Stubs Premiere for just $19.95/month (+tax). Click here for more information

Two trips to the movie in one month actually paid for itself and with earning $5 for every 50 bucks I spend, when we buy anything or bring the whole family, (which is about once a month) then I end up saving more money.

Yes, you say, you can only spend it at the movies but I was going to do that anyway.

You get to see new movies, old movies about to come out movies all within your 3 movie a week membership. Plus, when it’s busy, you can jump the line and grab your tickets you pr-ordered and sometimes the refreshment line rolls out the red carpet for you.

It’s so cool to see everyone’s sour face as they take care of you first before the “peasants.” LOL. Yeah, not funny, but funny.

If you go to the movies at least twice a month or want to go to the movies more but don’t see the cost-benefit, I highly suggest you join this movie club.

How to set up parental controls on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu

IMAGE: BOB AL-GREENE / MASHABLE
Welcome to Small Humans, an ongoing series at Mashable that looks at how to take care of – and deal with – the kids in your life. Because Dr. Spock is nice and all, but it’s 2018 and we have the entire internet to contend with.


Today’s video streaming services are absolutely amazing for children’s content, both educational and entertaining, but the savvy little monsters soon learn their way around an interface.

Before you know it, you’ll think you left your innocent toddler watching Wishenpoof and come back to find her staring wide-eyed at a fight scene in Ronja.

It’s important to understand how to set up your systems so that your precious poppets don’t see something they aren’t yet old enough to process.
