Not worth it to me. I see maybe 2 movies a month if that.
hmm That sounds cool actually, If i had a pass I would go more.. You could drop 40 bucks on 2 tickets and a coke alone.
It's not a bad deal but most people don't go to the movies that often.
Not worth it for me...My wife and I only spend like $15 for a movie...we usually go to the first showing of the day.
MoviePass only covers the tickets. You would still have to purchase food and drinks separately. Regardless, I get your point. Where I live, two adults tickets cost $22 total. So, even if you went to the movie theaters only twice-a-month, like chaster, you'd still save money.
We'll see how it works out.
My interest in this service has definitely gone up. Is it something movie theaters have agreed to
OTOH, unless the theaters do agree to it eventually, I don't think it can succeed financially. In theory, the benefit for MoviePass is the ability to negotiate favorable bulk rates ( and likely other bennies ) for their membership. The benefit for the theaters would be a large body of regular movie-goers, as well as the marketing power of the central MoviePass company encouraging people to go to movies more often. None of that can happen unless MoviePass can actually achieve a critical mass of members, though, and until they reach that critical mass, they are going to bleed money.
Nope. Essentially, they give you a credit card and they'll pay the bill. Their revenue comes from your membership fee. Whether or not they make a profit depends on how much people end up spending.
I hope it does work because id do it in a heartbeat
I signed up for an invite so apparently you have to wait until whenever.
It should be widely available by the start of 2013.
Depends on the type of card. If it's easily identifiable, AMC or Cinemark, whomever, could ban that card.
I don't see why the theaters would have a problem with it...they will still get their money unless this company goes bankrupt. I also don't see how this company is going to make money unless they team up with theaters to provide them breaks in ticket costs or if their membership requires a 6 month or 12 month commitment.
Essentially, why wouldn't someone just sign up in say August, watch all the big summer movies in a month, then sign up again in say December.
They're scared of the future. It's the same reason why studios and TV networks give Netflix Streaming such a hard time.
I'd get it mostly for summers,I don't have a cell phone though and so It'd suck IF I couldn't get a membership cause I can't use an app on a smartphone!!
Right now, it's an iPhone exclusive.
Of course it is.
Here what I kind of dont get about this,, just seems like a double edge sword..
If this movie pass does take off, whats to prevent the theater itself from doing the same thing? In other words just cut out the middle man. I do get the movie pass is more broad,, but who really travels around to a bunch of different theaters? Probably to few to make a big profit out of.
I pretty much only ever go to a Regal/United Artists theater when I'm home, if I'm visiting my parents it's AMC though. I'd go to way more movies if I had what amounts to a one time payment flat rate. Way more.
$40 a month? Even if I saw four movies within a month -- in my area and at my theater, it wouldn't be close to $40. It'd be more like $21-$32 if they were all 2D pics.
I imagine in your area with your theater pricing, the monthly fee would be more like the 25 than the 40.
I go to the movies every weekend, sometimes twice in a week if it's something I want to see, so it would help.
True. But for the most part I work at a theater, and I only pay if I want to see a new release on opening weekend (or day). I'm pretty much going by what the usual loyal patron pays for admission, provided they show up every weekend (and omitting any repeat viewings or concessions added on).
I think they really need to come up with a Family Plan. To take a family of 4 or 5 to a theater is a huge financial commitment. Netflix helps with that.
