What the HELL Did I Just Buy? – Movie Pass, See Every Movie at Any Theater at One Low Price

If any of you are like me, you don’t have much money and spending $14 dollars on a movie ticket after 5pm seems completely unreasonable when it was $12 at 4:59pm and only $5 on Tuesdays. Why should I pay more because I work? I call shenanigans! But there’s nothing you can do to convince the theater to change their prices. After paying for the ticket, I know I don’t have the money to enjoy the ironically loud snack of popcorn that is a staple to the movie going experience. The costs of going to the movies just seems to be too much.

Movie Pass is my solution to my first world dilemma. For $35 a month, you can watch any movie at any time at most major theaters. The only theater I haven’t been able to use it at in recent memory is the Dine-In AMC theater. It’s not just for mainstream movies, every independent theater around seems to allow Movie Pass and has opened me up to take risks on movies I would otherwise wait to hit Red Box. Not only is it great for indie films, it works on special events at the theaters. I haven’t personally used it to watch the Metropolitan Opera showing, but it is nice to know I can.

It’s really simple to use. Once at the movie theater, open the app, find the theater, then the movie and time, check in, and use the Movie Pass Card to pay for your ticket.

How-MoviePass-Works
The limitations to Movie Pass, aside from a few theaters who don’t accept it, are:
-24 hour purchase reload time after the movie; if you watch a movie at 10pm, you’re basically going to have to wait 2 days
-does not work on 3D, ETX, IMAX, or any enhanced viewing (although these options are likely to come soon)
-Can only watch each movie once

It also tracks which movies you've watched.

It also tracks which movies you’ve watched.

In most cases, if you watch a movie a week it is well worth it’s price. Combine it with theater loyalty programs such as: AMC Stubs Card, and the ticket price going up means you just get more points for your card. In the two years I’ve had Movie Pass I haven’t had to pay for popcorn or soda thanks to combining it with my AMC Stubs Card. Movie Pass is perfect for movie fans who regularly watch more than one movie a month or are looking to watch more movies in theaters. If you would like more information or to give Movie Pass a try here’s where to sign up for a two week free trial:
