Re: Movie Pass... would it work for you? [UPDATE: IT'S ALIVE!]

Supposedly you can now see the same movie more than once. Was confirmed by a moviepass user on reddit. But I bet they will restrict Star Wars. Cause I plan to see it fifty times

It was an annoying unannounced change, but you just had to take the picture before you saw a movie again, so I would just take the picture when I got back home. It honestly wasn't a hassle after that first time when it surprised me.

I was looking through the terms of service and found this part interesting:

So I'm not able to see a movie every day? Even though they state you are allowed to see one movie a day??? Has anyone here had their subscription rate increased?

Your contract is basically month to month, so they reserve the right to change it completely at any time, I think we brought this up some time back. Note that the one year promise was at this price point but not necessarily at this service level, and I figure it gives them an out because they have to be bleeding money like crazy even with the delays in getting cards out (which I suspect they are at least partially rationing).

You don't read too many T & Cs, huh? They all have the same type of statement allowing them to make changes.

Re: Movie Pass... would it work for you? [UPDATE: IT'S ALIVE!]

My card just came in -- 4 days short of a month.

I am not sure if I'm seeing anything this weekend, but I noticed that the theaters that accept e-tickets populated on the app. Studio Movie Grill is that chain. There's one about 8 miles away. That one seems like the obvious choice, because it's no fuss since I assume the e-ticket will be stored on my app for scanning once I arrive at the theater?

Re: Movie Pass... would it work for you? [UPDATE: IT'S ALIVE!]

I just got my pass. Are there any tips for dealing with a theatre that is reserved seating, but doesn't allow you to book in advance via the app?

All the theatres around me are reserved.

I was thinking I could buy a ticket on Fandango. Refund it when I get there. Then request that seat when I get to the kiosk. I don't know how doing that every time wouldn't draw suspicion though.

If you are in the neighborhood and don't mind dropping in earlier in the day to buy your ticket, there's nothing stopping you from say coming in at noon and buying a ticket for an evening show.

My card just arrived! Timing stinks with kid's schedule today, but looking forward to seeing (most likely) It tomorrow.

I just check right before leaving if there are enough seats available. Mondays and Wednesdays are my favorite days to go. Not much of a crowd monday and wednesday is always dead

I go "buy" a ticket on their website to look at the seat situation. When Wonder Women came out I waited a few weeks until I started seeing a lot of empty seats.

Or just go a few days earlier, check in for a movie on the day you show up, buy a ticket for the showing you want (requires two trips to the theater though).

Checking online has worked every time.

Re: Movie Pass... would it work for you? [UPDATE: IT'S ALIVE!]

I've now managed to see a movie the first three days I had the card. Would have cost me almost $45, so even if I see nothing the rest of the year, I'd be a bit ahead on the price. Looking forward to seeing a few more horror films before the end of October, then settling into a probable couple times a month routine. Super easy process at the theater, scans easily and works with my Regal points card too.

It was a great film. I've never read the book or seen the first film, but this was a solid mix of scares, heart, and humor; with a pack of kids less annoying than in similar films.

Flatliners was a mediocre pointless remake.

Happy Death Day dragged a bit for me near the end, but was a lot of fun. Again with a nice mix of heart and humor to go with some decent jump scares, and a fairly smart script for a Groundhog Day clone.

One thing Iím seeing is movies in theater rooms that I havenít seen so small in decades.

Talking 9 rows an about 90ish seats.
