    MoviePass offering unlimited movies for $9.95/month

    As movie theaters struggle with tepid sales, Mitch Lowe has an extreme proposal for how to get more people into seats: Let them come to all the showings they want for about the price of a single ticket each month.

    Lowe, an early Netflix Inc. executive who now runs a startup called MoviePass, plans to drop the price of the company’s movie ticket subscriptions on Tuesday to $9.95. The fee will let customers get in to one showing every day at any theater in the U.S. that accepts debit cards. MoviePass will pay theaters the full price of each ticket used by subscribers, excluding 3D or Imax screens.

    This is huge for cities like LA. I don't even remember the last time I paid less than $12 for a ticket. So, for $10, this is a stealllll

    I know multiple people that dont go to movies anymore because they dont want to get shot. I dont know how much this would change things.

    Seriously. A matinee by me is like $10.50. I remember when it was $8. And weekends are like at least $13 now.

    Average movie ticket in Los Angeles is anywhere from $12-$16, not including fees, which can add an extra $1 - $2 each.

    Parking is also costly. Add $3-$7.

    I live by theaters in the Beverly Hills, Westwood, Santa Monica, The Grove, Century City areas. The further you get away from the core of the city prices are somewhat lower.

    I just hate going to the movie theaters. no matter if there is a full theater or just 10 people in it I always get a group of people that sit near me and one of the people always has to explain to the rest of the group what is going on in the movie.

    If its not that then its the people constantly looking at or playing on their phones.

    I get easily annoyed at theaters lol

    Just tried going on the MoviePass website. I may be wrong, but it appears you need to subscribe first to find which theaters you can go to. They say 91% of theaters, but doesn't say which ones.

    Odd, they would do that. Unless, I'm missing something here.

    Are you saying, you prefer to watch Young Frankenstein on a small screen as opposed to what it was actually made for?

    There's nothing like watching a movie on the BIG screen or are you talking about the nonsensical ravings....of a lunatic mind?
