MoviePass Offers Unlimited Movies for $50 (Updated)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — A new service called MoviePass wants to become the Netflix of theatrical moviegoing. For $50 per month, moviegoers can see any movie they want (from participating theaters) whenever and however often they like.
What’s the catch? The service, which uses your iPhone or Android to reserve tickets, is currently only available at select San Francisco theaters. (There is still a $3 upcharge for 3-D movies, though.) For more information, check out Entertainment Weekly’s profile or visit MoviePass' website. My vote? If they expand to Los Angeles, they can have my Ulysses S. Grant.
UPDATE: Studios and theaters — especially AMC — are angry, according to The Wrap. Stay tuned …
