Another Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against MoviePass
A husband and wife from New York filed a class action lawsuit against MoviePass, alleging that they were only able to see three movies over ten months due to routine rolling blackouts.
Lawrence and Laurie Weinberger, of Sea Cliff, N.Y., allege that MoviePass engaged in a “deceptive and unfair bait-and-switch scheme” when it sold them annual passes in March 2018. They each paid $105.35 with the expectation that they could see “any movie” in “any theater” on “any day,” up to one per day.
However, similar to our experience with MoviePass (before canceling the service, naturally), the couple claims that whenever they tried to check into a movie on the app, none were available. They also allege that MoviePass refused to provide a pro-rated refund for the annual pass, which would have been fair and reasonable considering how drastically the service changed over the past 18 months.
Another class action was filed in San Francisco in November under similar circumstances.
