Have you ever thought “I would go to the movies every single day if it wasn’t so expensive?” I know! Me too! Have you ever thought “I wish there was a Netflix like service but for movie theaters?” Me too!
We’re all in luck, coming soon to a mobile device near you – MoviePass is a new service that is “coming soon”. For $50 a month you can go to unlimited movies at participating theaters, just by opening the app and “buying” a ticket to the movie. Then your phone acts as your ticket to get you entry.
What’s the catch? $50 a month is quite a bit, unless you plan on going to at least one movie per week. The other catch is that IMAX and 3D movies are $3 additional to the theater. Not a huge deal, but still a catch.
MoviePass is currently in development and is only slated to initially be released in the San Francisco area. I, for one, am hopeful that they’ll do extremely well there and expand out to the East coast as quickly as possible. I’d go to two movies a day if Christine would let me.
