Anyone else sign up for MoviePass?

The $9.95 a month for unlimited theatre movies? I too thought it was too good to be true but my significant counterpart and I both got one so we could give it a try.

 

So far combined, we've seen $92 worth of movies for $19 and even got to see the new IT and Close Encounters of the Third Kind with it. Those two alone made the price of the subscription itself worth it. We love movies and watch them a lot but don't really go out to the theaters and for a good reason, it gets expensive.

 

We're taking advantage for what it is for now but the reality is, there just aren't that many great movies to see right now. Blade Runner is the next one I'm really interested in seeing and then after that, will probably cancel because even as much of a great deal it is, just going out to see a movie 6 times a month to really take advantage of the subscription seems kind of... excessive.

 

Does anyone else have a subscription? The only downfalls I see are you can't see 3D movies (not a big deal to me) and they can't be FathomEvent movies (though I was still able to watch CE3K) just as long as they're not on a special wall to wall screen that AMC seems to have implemented.

Wha???  I need to look into this for sure.  I hadn't hear of it before.  Which theater chains are involved?  We have Regal and Century here.

 

My kids are both going to be away in college in a couple of weeks, so this would be really great for my wife and I.  Get us out of the house and having fun by ourselves.  Thank you for posting, I need to check it out.

Yeah, there really are so many options available to us anymore across the board when it comes to entertainment. Like I said, I don't imagine myself keeping it after Blade Runner. I think something like this could be cool when it comes to more overly expensive casual sports like bowling. Without a coupon or group deal, bowling for 2 people including shoes and 3 games each quickly reached the $40 mark.

Exactly this. They would have to retain me as a customer for 6 more months just to recoup what they've spent on my movie watching but again, there's just not that much time to watch that many movies in a short period of time thus nullifying the need to keep the card for extended periods anyway. Blade Runner and done. Well, I'll probably use the remainder of my month and watch whatever but that's it.
