MoviePass - $9.95/month for unlimited theater movies

Postby Erin » Fri Mar 02, 2018 3:02 pm

I have similar criteria. Although have just done it once, I had a 3-4hr span between needing to be somewhere so it worked well as a fun way to fill that time. I've thought about doing it other weekends when Chris had a sampling, too.

PS Tyler you're so funny

MoviePass CEO proudly says the app tracks your location before and after movies
Mitch Lowe, the company’s CEO, told an audience at a Hollywood event that “we know all about you.”

Lowe was giving the keynote at the Entertainment Finance Forum; his talk was entitled “Data is the New Oil: How will MoviePass Monetize It?” Media Play News first reported his remarks.

“We get an enormous amount of information,” Lowe continued. “We watch how you drive from home to the movies. We watch where you go afterwards.”

Update: In a statement, a MoviePass representative says:

We are exploring utilizing location-based marketing as a way to help enhance the overall experience by creating more opportunities for our subscribers to enjoy all the various elements of a good movie night. We will not be selling the data that we gather. Rather, we will use it to better inform how to market potential customer benefits including discounts on transportation, coupons for nearby restaurants, and other similar opportunities.

I don't have a problem with this. Google and Facebook are already doing it. At least I get something of monetary value out of MoviePass in exchange for their stalking me.

That's true! Definitely worth it for me, too. I don't know if I should care or not. I feel like my location is an important thing that I would rather not have distributed everywhere, but I don't think I mind.

For those who don't have Moviepass:
Dear MoviePass Members, Partners and Employees:

While speaking at a conference in Los Angeles, through a mix of exuberance about our future and joking around, I mischaracterized how MoviePass locates our members and I need to fix that. It has raised a lot of concerns and I understand why.

First and foremost, I apologize for these comments and the concern they caused. At MoviePass, we take customer privacy extremely seriously. I would like to eliminate any misconceptions that we’re collecting location related data.

The MoviePass app currently uses standard location services capabilities on an opt-in basis. There are only two events that would prompt MoviePass to identify a member’s location. These include when a member requests to search for theaters nearby and when a member requests to check into a theater. Both events require both the app to be open and for the member to request the action.

MoviePass does not track and has never tracked or collected data on the location of our members at any point when the app is not active. In our recent update with Apple, we removed the the background tracking capabilities. MoviePass does not use and has never used this feature.

Our goal at MoviePass has always been to encourage people to see more movies as they were meant to be seen -- in the theater. We want to make our service available at a price anyone can afford and everyone can enjoy. While we do create partnerships with theaters and studios in which we offer statistical data on ticket use and other trends, we never share our members’ identities or personal information or personal data with anyone.

MoviePass takes its members’ privacy extremely seriously, and our current Terms of Use and Privacy Policy accurately state the ways in which we use data. If, in the future, MoviePass desires to expand how it uses data, we will amend our Privacy Policy and notify our members so that they will be afforded the opportunity to opt- in or opt- out of the MoviePass service. This is what our customers expect, what the law requires, and how we’ve always handled data. We want to assure everyone that we treat our members’ data with the utmost sensitivity. Your trust and enjoyment are the lifeblood of our service.

We understand that you may have further questions, so have included an additional FAQ page for your reference.


Warm Regards,

Mitch Lowe
CEO

Just found it after reading this comment.

Nice damage control since I saw it posted a few times on Facebook about how horrible the company is for bragging about tracking your location.

$90 for a year for new members. Lowest deal they have done. I wish I could do it without starting a new card.

Just add a period/move it if you have one already to your email somewhere and it still comes to you.
