Moviepass, a new startup is hoping to save movie goers some cash by offering unlimited flix at the theater for $50 a month.
hmmm im not sure what to think of this exactly though this would be interesting this would get me to see movies i otherwise wouldnt want to see the most then others but i doubt it will come to canada though sigh
It's a very interesting idea. Could be something to watch out for. Though, at that price point it's nothing that will lure me in. No way do I see 5+ movies a month to justify this. They need to get that price point down somehow and then it could be a better deal.
Agreed. Great idea but the price isn't right at all because like you said, there aren't really 5+ movies that interest me in any given month. I'd like to say that I'd be willing to see 2-3 a month though so maybe a 29.99/34.99 price point and those months that are blockbuster heavy you really get your money worth. Something like that. Even at 29.99 though that's $360 a year which is WAY more than I pay to see movies in theaters. The $50 a month is $600/year which is just insane to me.
If i get to a theater once every 3 or 4 months, thats odd for me. I have different reasons though and it all boils down to cost. HOWEVER, $50 per month wouldn't be all that bad during the summer months IF i had the time...Which I don't. For movie goers here though, that might not be bad. It's at least $12+ per movie here.
This would be an awesome idea minus the limitations.
I'm more concerned about the price point. But would like to see that "no more than 1 movie a day" limitation go away (I'm ok with the "one time for one movie" thing).
A ticket for a movie where I am is 8.75 so I'd have to watch 6 movies/month just to get me money worth. Just as an example of movies that I'd want to see: May (5) - Thor, Bridesmaids, Pirates, Hangover 2, Kung Fu Panda 2 June (5) - X-Men: First Class. Super 8, Green Lantern, Cars 2, Bad Teacher July (3) - Transformers 3, Horrible Bosses, Captain America So with the subscription I'd be paying $150 but if I were to buy individual tickets for each of these movies I'd be spending under $120. Definitely not worth it for me at this time.
This is not a good deal at all especially the time of the year when they don't have any movies coming out that count. You can go a month or two without any movies showing that are worth going to pay at the theater.
50 bucks for 1 person is way too high, considering I would need 4 a month for my family. I am not paying 100 bucks a month to see movies.
That'd actually be $200/month which is nuts. I don't see this taking off at this price.
you are right 200 bucks, my math skills failed me.
the cineworld chain in the uk do something similar, called the unlimited pass. and handily there's a cineworld cinema 15 minutes walk away from my flat. 15 quid a month and see as many films as you want. you have to pay £1.50 for 3d films but still, watch more than two or three films a month and it's worth it. it's like 7 or 8 quid to see a film now. i don't know the prices for tickets in the us so i don't know if that's a good deal or not. but those restrictions on that service are ridiculous. one per day and you can only see a film once, having to pay to see it again.
I don't mind the restrictions so much if it meant bringing the price down. That cineworld price is much better. Monthly pass for the price of 2 movie admissions. Much better indeed.
