* Watch up to one movie a day in theaters for only $9.95 a month
* The MoviePass price has been slashed from $50
* Cancel at any time with no added fee
Sick of shelling out cash every time you go to the movies? MoviePass is a new subscription service that allows you to see up to one film a day in theaters, for less than 10 bucks a month. Seriously.
Though it launched in 2011, the company — run by Netflix co-founder and former Redbox president Mitch Lowe — didn’t really pick up steam until it announced last month that it had slashed the price of its all-you-can-watch pass from $50 to $9.95 per month. There really are no catches, either. Simply sign up and a debit card is mailed to you in five to seven days, which you present at the box office instead of a ticket.
The company says the pass works at more than 4000 theaters across the country (that’s about 91% of theaters), and you can see one movie a day, with no blackout dates. You can even see a new release movie on opening night. At $9.95 a month, you only need to watch one or two movies a month to make the deal worth it — though we wouldn’t hold it against you to see as many as you can.
Search the nearest theater to you by using their app or website. While you can’t see any IMAX or 3D movies with MoviePass, you can basically get a ticket to everything else, from blockbusters to indies. Just make sure you’re buying the ticket on-site; online purchases aren’t valid with this deal.
The service can be cancelled at any time with no termination fee, though if you’re a movie buff, we’re not sure why you’d really want to.
If you buy something because we told you about it, we may receive compensation from retail partners.
