MoviePass - $9.95/month for unlimited theater movies

Postby Tyler » Wed May 09, 2018 6:51 am


According to Bloomberg, MoviePass’ parent company Helios & Matheson reported in a Tuesday filing that it’s down to just $15.5 million in cash as of the end of April—at a time when it’s burning through around $21.7 million a month. The company has about $27.9 million more on deposit with merchant processors, but that lifeline can only go on so long. Investors appear to be seriously spooked, Bloomberg added, with shares of the company crashing by 32 percent.

So 2 months until they are in the red

Yeah, highly doubt they refund anyone if the company declares bankruptcy

Is this worth $20 to me? During the winter, yes. I doubt I see as many movies early on Friday now that it's nice out, yard needs upkeep, projects need done, etc

I probably would not. This last month or two I haven't been going nearly as often as when I first got it.

MoviePass still has a few tricks up its sleeve.

The movie-ticket subscription service that gets members into one showing per day for $9.95 a month is adding features, including the ability to pay more to see formats like 3D or IMAX, pay for plans as a family, and bring a friend to the movies. The company announced the new options on Tuesday (May 15) when parent Helios and Matheson Analytics reported first quarter earnings. It did not say when they would roll out or what they would cost.

The feature I would really like to have is pre-ordering tickets.

Anyone else having to take pictures of their ticket stub now? Thoroughly confused the crap out of my mom.

We definitely would pay $20/mo for it. we go to at least 2/month I would say. I definitely go to more than 24 movies/year. HOWEVER... I could also just resort to going to movies on Tuesdays ($5 movie days).

I haven't used mine in a month so I haven't seen the photo request

Werd about thing at cheap times. I typically go Friday mornings when the tickets are around $6.

MoviePass Parent Company Acquiring Emmett Furla Oasis Films

Helios and Matheson Analytics, the parent company of MoviePass, has acquired the exclusive option to buy Emmett Furla Oasis Films, the producers of “Lone Survivor” and “End of Watch,” Variety has learned.

If completed, the deal will enable the company to buy the entire film library and current production slate of EFO Films. Helios and Matheson plans to use the library and the filmmaking expertise of EFO Films to launch its own production company, MoviePass Films. Randall Emmett and George Furla will serve as co-CEO’s of the new venture.

I wonder if they are doing this in a way to work out a deal with the movie theaters. They charge the theaters less to play their movies, or make their own movies cheaper, so that the theaters take a bigger cut? Win-win for both companies right off the bat.

Used at Flix Brewhouse last night. I got to pick my seat in the app. To get my ticket I went to a kiosk and entered a code from the app. Didn't swipe my card anywhere.
