If you’re willing to look past the somewhat creepy admissions that have come out of the company recently, you may be excited to hear about this deal. MoviePass is offering new members a new low price of $6.95 USD per month to sign up for the seemingly too good to be true movie ticket service. There are a couple things to keep in mind, but if you’ve been on the fence and have considered signing up, now would be a pretty good time to act.
The caveats here are that you will, of course, need to be a new subscriber. This deal is not open to current subscribers (sorry current subscribers!). The plan is also paid annually, and includes a $6.55 one-time processing fee, bringing your payment up to $89.95 USD. If you like going to see movies in the theater, that’s still a completely ridiculous price, and well worth your money as long as you’re OK with the service tracking you a little bit and using what it learns to make some extra money on the side.
This new plan is being offered specifically because of the marketing agreements and other new revenue streams that the company has gained since the service has gone live. CEO Mitch Lowe spoke a bit about how the new plan came about:
Our vision has always been to make the movie going experience easy and affordable for anyone, anywhere. With the current growth and support that we’ve seen within the last several months, our studio and exhibitor revenues and other marketing partnerships have motivated us to lower the price once again, offering movie lovers greater access to MoviePass.
So, if you’ve been toying with the idea of signing up but haven’t, this might be the perfect time to jump in. For less than what some people pay for a cup of coffee (Starbucks can get expensive…), you could instead see one movie per day in a movie theater for an entire month. If you’re interested, you can read more about the new pricing plan in the full press release below, or head over to the MoviePass website to sign up.
