If you charge yourself $9 for popcorn at home just to recreate the movie theater experience, we have good news.
While new subscription services for watching movies like Netflix allow you to stream movies from the comfort of your own home, there are still dedicated movie buffs who love to watch the latest releases on the big screen. A new service will save you lots of money if you're one of those dedicated film fans.
MoviePass is a subscription service that lets you see 1 movie in theaters every day, 365 days a year, for a monthly fee. While the company has been around since 2011, until recently a subscription would cost you as much as $50. That meant MoviePass was only worthwhile if you were seeing at least 5 flicks per month.
But now the company has lowered their fee to just $10 a month, attracting more than 100,000 subscribers since the price change in July. The company admits they're losing money with so many new subscribers, but of course there's a catch that could pay them back in the long run.
But before you sign up for MoviePass there's a few things you should know about the company: for one thing the deal doesn't apply to 3D or Imax screenings, and while MoviePass brags that "91%" of theaters in America are included, most smaller local theatres don't take MoviePass.
So how does this deal work, and where can you get it?
