Moviegoers and financially strapped college students rejoice: MoviePass has renewed its $10 monthly subscription to unlimited daily movies — meaning in theory, you could see one movie per day, every day, for less than the cost of a single ticket in some areas of the country.
MoviePass’s kickass $9.95 subscription was temporarily suspended, according to Wired, before making its triumphant return this week. In addition to its $10 special, the MoviePass website also offers a $7.95 subscription package that includes access to three movies a month and three free months of iHeartRadio All-Access streaming. (But seriously, $2 more for unlimited flicks feels like the way to go.)
All you need to do is sign up by heading here. The website will prompt you for contact and credit card information for a monthly payment for whichever plan you choose. The site notes that users can cancel their subscriptions at any time.
Back in August, MoviePass’ original $9.95 subscription launch was so popular that it crashed its site. The company also temporarily offered a limited end-of-year special of $6.95, making it cheaper than the cost of a monthly subscription to Netflix. With the return of its $9.95 subscription plan, the company is reportedly also planning to add plans for 3D and IMAX screenings.
Can we expect MoviePass to hang around at its present $10 rate? “It’s fine-tuning this model,” MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe tells Wired, adding that the company is “committed” to its subscription model. “Everybody wants a consistent offer. Believe me, I want a consistent offer.”
This is fantastic news for film lovers of all stripes. How any of us could afford to see movies before MoviePass still largely remains a mystery.
