So it’s peak summer season, which means prime time for going to the movies. But with ticket prices the way they are, along with the cost of concessions, moviegoing gets fairly pricey.
So what are you supposed to do without spending an arm and a leg to enjoy the latest summer blockbusters? Fortunately, movie theater subscriptions have become a rising trend lately, and it seems there’s a new option popping up every few months now.
But with so many choices now, which movie subscription service is the best for you? Let’s dive into some of the more popular choices and find out!
- AMC Stubs A-List
- Cinemark Movie Club
Let’s start with the one that everyone’s probably heard of by now due to making plenty of headlines recently: MoviePass.
There are two levels of membership: MoviePass and MoviePass Unlimited.
The regular MoviePass subscription starts at $7.95 a month and gives members three movies a month. If you go with MoviePass Unlimited at $9.95 a month, you get one movie a day for the month, although there are some caveats that we’ll discuss in a bit.
With MoviePass, unfortunately, you can’t use the service until you receive the physical card in the mail. This process can take up to two weeks after you sign up for a plan.
The physical MoviePass card works like a debit card, and it’s even branded as a MasterCard. Once you check-in to a movie, just use your MoviePass card to pay for the ticket at the box office or kiosk, just like you would with any other credit card for payment. This works because after you check in, your card gets about $15 of credit loaded onto it to “pay” for the ticket.
It’s important to keep track of your MoviePass card at all times, though, because if you lose it, getting in touch with their customer service department for a replacement can be a doozy. Read More>>>
