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.

JL4064d ago

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).

-MD-4064d ago (Edited 4064d ago )

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.
