MoviePass now costs just $6.95/month to see one movie per day in theaters

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

After processing fees, you’re looking at $ 89.95 for a year of movies.

MoviePass came under some heat earlier this month when it was discovered to be tracking its users’ location more closely than originally believed, and likely in an attempt to gloss over the bad press, the company’s lowering its subscription fee for new members.

For a limited time, you can sign up for MoviePass for just $ 6.95/month instead of the regular $ 9.95. MoviePass says this is “limited time” offer, and it’s only available for new subscribers.

MoviePass bills memberships annually, meaning you’ll pay $ 89.95 all at once upon signing up (that includes a one-time $ 6.55 processing fee). A MoviePass membership lets you see one 2D movie every day for the entirety of your subscription, meaning you could theoretically pay $ 89.95 and see one movie in theaters every single day.

Even if you’re not at the theaters at every waking hour, this is still a pretty sweet deal considering most movie tickets cost around $ 10 – $ 15 these days.

Hollywood producer Jason Blum thinks movie studios and theaters have already lost the battle to Netflix

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The filmmaker says it’s “preposterous” that some studios insist on their movies being seen in theaters.

Filmmaker Jason Blum thinks that the battle between studios, theaters, and streaming services like Netflix over how movies are released is basically over — and his industry lost.

The movie industry has long been debating when films should be offered outside of theaters. Simultaneously? After weeks? After months? Well, Blum said Saturday that during that negotiation, companies like Netflix and Amazon won by creating their own content that effectively allowed them to usurp the studios.

“We in the movie business kind of missed the boat,” Blum told Recode’s Peter Kafka at SXSW in Austin, Texas. “While we couldn’t figure out an agreement to let people do what they wanted to do, Netflix said ‘You guys keep fighting. We’re going to give the consumer what they want, and we’re going to give them movies at home’’.”

Blum, who is obviously a fan of the communal experience that comes from watching a film with others in a theater, said it’s a “shame” that happened. But there’s no turning back: “The horse is gone.”

Known for his low-budget horror films like “Get Out” and “Paranormal Activity,” Blum had a lot to say about what he saw as his industry’s strategic mistakes. While there had been some recent momentum toward a grand deal that would allow providers like Netflix to show films sooner than when they were shown in theaters, Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox is seen as a major setback given Disney’s affinity for the in-theater, blockbuster experience.

The cultural impact of studios losing the fight? Blum said he worried that the entire movie industry would not stay relevant if it kept demanding that a younger generation of content-viewers only view content the way that Hollywood demanded.

“I really disagree with filmmakers telling the audience they have to see a movie in a movie theater. What that did, in my opinion, is make television series much more culturally relevant than movies,” he said. “The notion in 2018 or ‘19 of telling the consumer — of telling an 18-year-old — where he should see what you made is preposterous.”

Jordan Peele’s Get Out is heading into this year’s Academy Awards with four nominations, including Best Picture, and audiences will be able to see the film again for free at AMC theaters this Presidents’ Day.

(Get Out was released last year on February 24th; the free screenings will be happening next Monday, February 19th at 7:00PM local time.)

Almost immediately upon its release, Get Out was hailed as a modern classic, with Peele deftly using the framework of a traditional horror movie to explore racial tensions while also cleverly wringing humor out of some of the same terrifying situations….

MoviePass pulls support from popular AMC theaters

MoviePass and the AMC Theatres chain have never exactly enjoyed a rosy relationship, and the latest step in their conflict came today, as MoviePass pulled support from some of the chain’s most high-profile locations.
