In addition to the $10/month Basic plan, MoviePass offers three more expensive subscription options: a $20/month Standard plan for three to seven movies per month, a $30/month Premium plan for five to eleven movies per month, and a $40 / month Premium subscription for five to eleven movies per month. month Pro for up to 30 movies per month. There is a separate, more expensive plan for customers in Southern California and the New York metro area.
The reason why each level contains a series of movies for you to watch has to do with the way MoviePass’s new credits system works. Each tier offers a different number of credits that you can redeem for movies each month, with Basic having the fewest credits and the Pro plan having the most.
According to MoviePass, a movie’s credit rating can fluctuate depending on a number of factors, including the time of day and the day of the week you choose to watch it. Based on tweets from customers who have tested the service, credit costs have changed without warning and can vary significantly between impressions.
If you don’t use up all of your credits, MoviePass says it will roll them over to the next month, so you can have up to two months of unused credits in your account to use at a later date. Once you sign up for the service, you will receive a MoviePass card within 10 to 15 business days to use at supported movie theaters.
“By opening MoviePass to movie lovers across the country, we are expanding our support for the movie theater industry by driving traffic to all theaters during the critical summer season,” Spikes said in a statement. “Our newly designed service gives our members more choice and flexibility in how they use their monthly credits, while continuing to encourage them to watch movies in theaters.”
Compared to other movie theater subscriptions like the $19.95/month AMC Stubs A-List plan or the $18.99/month Regal Unlimited plan, MoviePass stands out in that it starts at a lower price and is available in a wider variety of theatres. However, unlike these two subscriptions, MoviePass does not offer additional benefits such as free popcorn and other concession discounts.
