MoviePass card numbers

MoviePass‘s meteoric rise and rapid downfall is already the stuff of Hollywood cautionary tales, but somehow, the movie ticketing service keeps falling harder. It seems like the only time that MoviePass makes headlines lately is when its latest scandal surfaces, and this newest one is a doozy. According to a new report, MoviePass has exposed tens of thousands of customer card numbers and personal credit cards through an unprotected critical server. We all know the biggest issue here: MoviePass still has thousands of customers?

MoviePass scandal

MoviePass, the movie ticket subscription service which was all the rage in 2018, experienced such an explosive rise and tumultuous fall that I would not be surprised if someone ended up making a movie about it one day. And thanks to a recent in-depth report on the company’s questionable business practices, here’s a scene that could be used during the “beginning of the end” portion of the eventual film: CEO Mitch Lowe ordering his employees to change the passwords of heavy MoviePass users so they would not be able to log on and use the service. Read more about that and some of the other aspects of the MoviePass scandal below. Read More »

MoviePass Shutting Down

Back in April, we heard that the movie ticket subscription service MoviePass had lost 90% of their subscribers after all the problems they’ve had over the past year or so. The company claimed these numbers were false, but they’ve yet to prove otherwise. However, even though Sinemia has shut down entirely after facing similar business problems, MoviePass still clings to life, but as of now, they won’t be available for several weeks due to maintenance that will reportedly improve the company’s mobile app.

Meanwhile, Regal Cinemas has finally announced their own movie tickets subscription service is coming to life in the form of Regal Unlimited. The service will give unlimited tickets to subscribers, but there are pricing tiers that dictate where customers will be able to see movies.  Read More »

moviepass subscription dropped

Update: MoviePass has released a statement claiming that the numbers from Business Insider’s reports are false and that its parent company has not released any subscriber numbers.

For some strange reason, MoviePass has dropped 90% of its subscribers in less than a year. Weird, right? What mysterious explanation could there be for this massive decrease in subscriptions? I’m joking, of course. We all know the answer: the movie-ticket-subscription service imploded after leaking money like a siv. This resulted in a sudden change of rules and pricing, which in turn resulted in MoviePass friends to become MoviePass foes. And now here we are, with the company somehow still hanging on, but just barely.

PreShow

Do you want to go to the movies for free? Well, soon you’ll be able to, via an app called PreShow. Sound too good to be true? It might be. The service will enable theater-goers to nab free movie tickets by sitting through “15-20 minute ‘preshow’ comprised of entertaining branded content.” Piece of cake, right? Well, not so fast. To ensure you’re definitely watching the ads, the PreShow app will track your eye movements. If you stop looking at the ads for too long, they’ll pause, and won’t start up again until your gaze returns.

If this sounds a bit like a Black Mirror episode, that’s because it is. The same sort of premise was used for the season one episode “Fifteen Million Merits.”

New MoviePass Subscriptions

Somehow MoviePass is still a thing that exists. After a long history of constantly changing subscription plans and the rules users had to follow in order to be able to use it, not to mention the significant loss of money and severe hits to their reputation, you would think MoviePass would be dead. Instead, the service is going back to its roots by bringing back their movie-per-day subscription plan.

But of course, since this is MoviePass we’re talking about, there’s a catch. Read More »

moviepass films change

The folks at MoviePass must have realized it’s been a couple of months since their last questionable decision, so they’ve decided to rectify that with a new announcement. The company is shifting their business model yet again, and will now focus more on its own original films. You know, films like Gotti. MoviePass Films will now “accelerate production of projects for theatrical release, and increase distribution deals for retail, home video, and transactional and international sales.”

MoviePass Family Plan

You don’t recognize MoviePass anymore. Maybe it hurt you, maybe it betrayed you one too many times, and you’ve decided to leave it behind. But like a bad boyfriend, MoviePass wants you back and it’ll even go back to the way things were before things got complicated. That’s right, MoviePass is bringing back its unlimited plan as part of its new relaunch to attempt to shake off its troubled image and bring on new (or old) subscribers.

MoviePass three-tiered

If you thought we left MoviePass behind with 2018, you’d be wrong. The embattled ticketing service is not going down without a fight, and its latest battle de jour are new pricing tiers that will entice new and old subscribers back to the app. But the MoviePass three-tiered pricing structure may not be the deal that it promises to be (what’s new?). And in the meanwhile, MoviePass’ parent company Helios and Matheson Analytics further distances itself from the ticketing service (again, what’s new?).
