In addition to the Basic plan at $10/month, MoviePass offers three more expensive subscription options: a Standard plan at $20/month for three to seven movies per month, a Premium plan at $30/month for five to 11 movies per month and a $40/month plan. months Pro for up to 30 movies per month. There is a separate, more expensive subscription for customers in Southern California and the New York metropolitan area.
The reason each tier includes a range of movies you can watch has to do with how MoviePass’s new credits system works. Each tier offers a different number of credits that you can redeem for movies each month, with Basic having the fewest credits and the Pro plan having the most.
According to MoviePass, a movie’s credit value can fluctuate depending on a number of factors, including the time of day and the day of the week you want to watch it. Based on tweets client who tested the service, credit costs changed without warning and can vary significantly from broadcast to broadcast.
If you don’t use all of your credits, MoviePass says it will roll them over to the next month, allowing you to have a maximum of two months of unused credits in your account to use later. Once signed up for the service, you will receive a MoviePass card within 10-15 business days to use at supported theaters.
“By opening MoviePass to moviegoers nationwide, we’re expanding our support for the movie industry by helping drive traffic to all theaters during the critical summer season,” Spikes said in a statement. “Our newly designed service gives our members greater choice and flexibility in how they use their monthly credits, while continuing to encourage them to watch movies in theaters.”
Compared to other movie subscription plans, like the $19.95/month AMC Stubs A-List Subscription or the $18.99/month Regal Unlimited Plan, MoviePass stands out in that it starts at a cheaper price and is available in a wider variety of theaters. Unlike those two subscriptions, however, MoviePass doesn’t offer extra perks like free popcorn and other concession discounts.
