I’m dying to see Lady Bird. I mean, what can I say, I went to college in Austin and Lady Bird Lake is smack in the middle of the city. I am destined to see this movie. But, I live in New York City and going to the movies is a fortune. It’s $15 a movie. I don’t know where people find the money to keep up these expensive habits like going to the movies, and buying organic food, and smoking cigarettes. Sometimes I think I wasn’t fit to live in this current day and age. But then I learned about MoviePass.
Here’s The Deal With MoviePass
When I caught word of MoviePass, it struck me that it’s actually a great deal. Like I mean a really great deal. You can see a movie a day for $7.95 a month. That includes unlimited access to Fandor, a streaming library of independent films, which in and of itself costs $10 a month.
Now, this $7.95 a month deal is a promotion, and it might not last very long, so get it while you can. Who knows, it might revert back to the $9.95 a month that it was previously. Along with no access to Fandor. But, I mean, I think ten dollars a month for unlimited movies is still a rock-solid deal.
Basically, what MoviePass is doing for movie theaters is what Netflix did for DVDs: let people watch as many movies as they want for a super reasonable price. And it’s doing a good job. MoviePass now has 2 million subscribers and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
Now, there are some restrictions: you are limited to watching one movie per day and it doesn’t cover IMAX or 3-D showings. And some AMC theaters are not accepting MoviePass, so make sure to check ahead of time. But the best part about all of this is now you can afford to buy popcorn at the movies!
