I love movies. I mean really love movies. Whether it’s a comedy, drama, action, romantic comedy it doesn’t really matter. I just love a good story. The problem with that is the cost. Have you been to the movie theater lately? Those prices are Highway robbery! That’s just for the ticket, let’s not even discuss the prices at the concession stand. You need to take out a small loan or mortgage the house just for a date night out.
This is a way around this though. That solution is movie pass. Movie Pass is a subscription service that allows for unlimited movie viewing during your month of service. The price for the month is $35 and there are a number of theaters that support the app. Basically, you pay the $35 monthly fee, just like other subscription services, and you have the ability to watch as many movies in that month as you can take.
The idea sounds great but I was a bit skeptical at first. How would this process work? What theaters will support it? Is it really worth it? You pay your monthly fee. There are a number of theaters that support it from big names like Regal and AMC to smaller local theaters. If you go to the movies more than 3 times per month, then it is definitely worth it. I also love that not only is it easy to use but it also works with those reward programs as well.
It is such an easy process to use. Once you sign up for the service you will receive your debit card in the mail a few days later. Once you get the card, download the app and activate the card. The next steps are how to use it at the theater;
- open the moviepass app and search by movie or theater.
- Once you’ve found the movie you want to see, just click on it (you need to be within 100 yards of the theater to be able to check in)
- After you have checked in, go to the kiosk or cashier and buy your ticket with the provided Movie Pass debit card (once you check in you have 30 minutes to buy your ticket. if time expires you just need to check in again)
- Enjoy your movie.
This is a great service for people like me that love going to the movies. It pays for itself in three visits (give or take) and the rest of the month is pretty much free. If you use reward programs like Regal crown club or AMC stubs that give you points for how much you spend than you are getting free points after that third or so visit. Gotta love free right?
I’ve been using it for about 2 months now and love it. The only issue I have, and it’s not really an issue actually, is that you can only see one movie per day. I also have to log out and back into the app when I want to check in for some reason. This may just be a glitch with the app though. Still these issues are not deal breakers.
If you enjoy movies like me I suggest you check out Movie Pass.
