Got my email. Hopefully my last. No details on the plans but was hawking the book by Stacy Spikes with the quote "You deserve to know what happened with MoviePass." Like I care. lol

Got my email invite last night. The signup process is definitely not transparent with information.
Thanks for the link to the pricing info.
The rollover of credits is a nice feature (sort of essential since you'll always have a remainder of credits).
I'll admit though, I've gotten spoiled by AMC AList and buying reserved seats ahead of time, I am out of the habit of just going to a theatre and buying the ticket there.
One of the FAQ implies some theaters will allow e-ticketing, but no details.
Haven't decided yet...

Thanks for that link! I'm going to stay with AMC for now. Although it may be cheaper with MoviePass whenever I'm waiting for the next IMAX to come out, I don't want all the switching back and forth. I mostly go at nights and weekends, mostly weekend nights. I love the reserve and go. I used MP back in the day and got a ton of value out of it and left when it started declining.

Yikes Southern California and NY pricing is double other states for the cheapest plan.

We'll see if it lasts but I am going to try the $10 and see how it goes. At the very least can see a few matiness with my kids.

I'm sure that's because ticket prices are higher, no? That was what made the earliest incarnation of Moviepass a no go for me, it was too expensive (when it was offered) in CA, and it's also what made the insane MoviePass era so good.

BTW, from the FAQs:
  • Will my unused credits rollover?

    Yes! Up to 2 months of your unused credits will rollover. For example, if your plan is for 23 credits per month, you can have up to 46 credits in your account.
So you really only can roll over ONE month because at the beginning of the period bam xx credits and if you already have two months that's your limit and no new credits, so that's deceiving, you can roll over one full month.

I'd give this a shot, except for my small local theater doesn't have matinees (earliest showing is usually 4:30 or so) during the school year. As a result, the use of credits as described would limit the ability to get my money's worth.

I joined the wait-list back in August but didn't receive any invitation email. So am I just out of luck? Did anyone else sign up and not get the invite?

According to their website, anyone that signs up is suppose to get 10 friend invites. Who knows if that's for real or not. I can share here if I get them.

Here's the list of theaters that supposedly take this new incarnation of Movie Pass.

I let my priority access lapse, but it says I can sign up to join the waitlist for the Spring/Summer 2023 launch. I'm extremely leery about this. I already pay $24.95/month for A-List and have been very satisfied with it.

If you're around a bunch of AMC theaters (and you're fine with them) I honestly don't see the point in this at all, in that scenario what benefits would this have over A-list?

None. No premium screens on this right now. A-List gets me access to Dolby and IMAX at no extra surcharges.

I live literally 10-12 minutes away from an AMC

I have one AMC theater near me and it's a shit hole. It's actually the closest theater to my house, but I'd rather not go there if I can go literally anywhere else.

I'm giving this a chance because I liked the original incarnation of MoviePass, before the $10 a month unlimited nonsense. I mean, don't get me wrong, I saw a bunch of movies that way, but I knew that it could never last from the moment that they launched at that price point.

I'm willing to give this a chance because there is no commitment beyond the first month. I'm at the $20 a month level and waiting for my card to arrive.

I passed as well. My fav theater isn't on the list and movies come to streaming so quick now, for stuff I'm just casually interested in.
