Geek of the Week: MoviePass

If you're a fan of going to the movies but not a fan of the cost of tickets...this is for you! Think of it like Netflix for the movie theater! For about $10 a month, you get to see any movie you want, whenever you want, wherever you want, as often as you want! Unlimited movies, valid at any theater*.

There are a couple catches to be aware of.

  1. only good for 2D movies
  2. not good for advance tickets, you physically have to stand at the ticket counter, present your card (or some theaters may be able to scan a barcode on your phone) and get your tickets like the rest of us. So, you can't get in to a show that's already sold out.

Manage your subscription, pay your bills, and check local movie times from the free app, available for iOS and Android.

--There is another, similar subscription service, offered by Cinemark Cinemas. Its called Movie Club, and for $9 a month, you get to see ONE movie a month AND get 20% OFF at the concession stand. If you don't see a movie this month, it rolls to the next month, and this app does allow for advanced, online ticket sales.

 

*double check with your local theater to make sure they'll accept MoviePass and Cinemark Movie Club
