But It's The Popcorn and Sodas That Get You...

Interesting post on GeekDad yesterday about MoviePass - a service where you pay an upfront fee, get a credit card-style card, and can see as many 2D movies (please note the 2D caveat) you want in theaters for free.



Ron Huddleston notes on GeekDad that the service used to be $34.99/month...but the service has changed and now they have an annual fee of $89.95/year ($6.95/month + a small service fee to bring it to $89.95/year) so it comes out to about $7.50 per month  If you're like me...a morning version of a straight digital movie is going to run you just under $8...and if you go afternoons that would start to climb into the $10-12 range...and don't get me started on evening showings (and frankly the older and more stubborn I get the more I ask myself, 'who the hell is willing to pay more than $12 for a movie?!?!')  So, see a movie or two and you quickly pay for the service (and arguably you might see more movies than you do now if you're smart and utilize what this is giving you.)

I'm intrigued by this...and need to probably look into it further to see if it is actually available in enough theaters in my area (with premium recliner seating, etc.)  But on the surface...this seems like a helluva deal...just in time for the holidays...

Peace...
