When was the last time you went to catch a movie in the theater? Need a second to try and remember? Well, you’re not alone. With the advent of prestige television and high quality streaming services, old-school cineplexes simply aren’t pulling in the kinds of audiences they used to. Now, thanks to MoviePass, the odds may once again swing back in favor of the traditional theaters.
In much the same way that you pay a small monthly fee for access to HBO, Netflix, or other streaming services, MoviePass is set up so you pay just $10 a month for access to one movie ticket a day. That means for less than the price of a large popcorn, you can get yourself into the theater every day of the month. This isn’t some fringe thing, either. Over 4,000 theaters have signed on to this program in an attempt to get butts back in their seats. We’re pretty sure they have us convinced. The app is available for both iOS and Android.
