19 Reasons You Need to Have MoviePass
In August 2017, MoviePass slashed the price of their monthly subscription from $50 to just $9.95, only a dollar more than the national average of $8.84 per movie ticket. That means subscribers need only see two movies with MoviePass to get more than their money's worth -- or just one in most metropolitan areas, where ticket prices often exceed $10.
To start using MoviePass, download the app and sign up for a monthly subscription. A physical MoviePass card will be in the mail to you shortly. Bring the card and your phone within 100 yards of any participating theater, and through the app check in for whatever film and showtime you want to attend. MoviePass then automatically loads your card with the full cost of a single ticket, which is then paid to the theater. Having a tangible charge card for this purpose makes the process much simpler, as there's no need to show your phone to a ticket taker who might not be familiar with the technology.
