MoviePass Rolling Out New Tiers and Pricing. Again.
MoviePass announced new pricing tiers and subscription models again, further complicating what used to be the most straightforward and cost-effective movie subscription service.
Beginning in January, MoviePass will offer three different plans that members can choose. The first, called "Select," is priced at $10 per month and allows subscribers to see three movies. The company will announce available titles a week in advance. The plan excludes movies during their opening weekend and limits customers to standard 2D movies.
A second level, called "All Access," is priced at $15 per month. The plan allows customers to see any three 2D movies at any time during their theatrical run.
The highest tier, called "Red Carpet," is priced at $20 per month. It includes three movies and subscribers can choose films shown in IMAX or 3D.
Even more confounding is the fact that MoviePass plans on charging different (read: higher) fees based different “zones” to account for the varying cost of a movie ticket in various markets. New York, for example, could see these subscription prices $5 higher compared to more rural markets.
Regardless, considering just yesterday MoviePass listed a number of available showtimes in the morning only to have them all disappear later in the day, the service should neither be trusted with your money nor to reliably meet your for movie-going needs.
