MoviePass famously broke the mold when it comes to how moviegoers get their tickets. But they also broke their bank, and now they’re desperate to convince subscribers that they’ve fixed their problems and aren’t back on their bullshit. Now fellow movie ticket subscription service Sinemia might be facing some of the same problems.
Sinemia has been facing an onslaught of criticism from users lately due to outages during the opening weekend of Jordan Peele’s Us on March 23 and the days since. Meanwhile, plenty of other customers have suddenly had their subscriptions canceled on the basis of “fraud” (some are /Film readers and have even e-mailed us with complaints), others continue to have trouble buying tickets, and customer service doesn’t seem to be doing much to help either. So what’s the deal here? Conveniently, Sinemia Founder and CEO Rifat Oguz says these problems are few and far between. Could they really be putting in effort to make things right? Read More »
Sinemia is introducing a new unlimited plan that it hopes will put it back in the conversation of the battle for the superior movie ticket subscription service. The ticketing app has unveiled its Sinemia Unlimited Plan, which allows subscribers to watch one 2D movie a day for $14.99 a month. That’s only $5 more than the infamous MoviePass plan that blew up and subsequently tanked the service (though they still refuse to give up). Could this be the plan that earns Sinemia more subscribers?

Even though MoviePass was the king of the movie ticket subscription service for a time, their shady practices of constantly changing the policies and capabilities of their service quickly turned them into an undesirable company. One of the other subscription services picking up the pieces has been Sinemia, who offers their own reasonably priced subscription plans to allow users to see movies on the cheap. However, recently there have been complaints about added online fees, making their discount on tickets practically useless. Thankfully, Sinemia has come up with a solution, albeit one that isn’t the most efficient. Read More »
Sinemia is continuing to take full advantage of the downfall of MoviePass, and they might even be looking to entice some AMC Stubs A-List members who might not be happy about the recent slight price increase. The movie ticket subscription service has announced a new series of weekday plans with the hopes of filling theaters on the less popular days by offering cheaper subscriptions. This could be a great option for those moviegoers who don’t feel the need to hit movie theaters on opening weekend.

While movie ticket subscription services like MoviePass and AMC A-List have earned a majority of the flashy headlines over the past year or so, Sinemia has quietly proven itself to be one of the most reliable alternatives available for movie lovers. Last month they revealed an unlimited movie plan for $29.99 per month, but today the company has taken an interesting new step with a new announcement: Sinemia has created software that will allow any movie theater to create their own individual movie ticket subscription services – and those new customizable plans can start rolling out in just two weeks from now.

Things have been relatively quiet in the movie subscription world lately, but today is the day that changes. On the heels of AMC Stubs A-List’s announcement earlier this morning, Sinemia has unveiled a brand new unlimited movie subscription plan that will cost $29.99 per month. The company has been offering unlimited plans to customers in Europe for years, and it sounds like they’ve landed on a sustainable price point to keep that model alive for U.S. audiences. Get all the details about the new plan below.

Against all odds, MoviePass has managed to survive another week. But after canceling all their annual subscriptions for unlimited tickets and forcing subscribers to either switch over to their new $9.99 monthly plan or cancel the service altogether, the company is losing even more of their subscriber base. That means there are plenty of customers looking for a more reliable service, and Sinemia is here to offer their assistance.
Sinemia has announced a new $9.99 a month plan that provides three movie tickets each month to any 2D-format screening for any movie, at any theater, with the ability to purchase tickets in advance and select seats, and there are no blackout dates or surge pricing. That sound you hear is MoviePass executives screaming and banging their head against the wall. Read More »
While AMC’s A-List continues to gain traction and MoviePass stands on shaky ground with its unpopular business decisions, Sinemia is stepping up as a worthy competitor in the growing movie ticket subscription service industry. Following its introduction of family plans and online reservations, Sinemia is going to be lowering prices astronomically. For a limited time, Sinemia is offering plans for as low as $3.99 a month — less than half the price of MoviePass’s famous $9.95 a month deal. It’s a steal, but only for the summer.

MoviePass is currently the king of movie ticket subscription companies, but their reign may not last forever. Sinemia is their chief competitor at the moment, and we recently wrote about how Sinemia is having trouble keeping up with demand for their services and that they’re experiencing some of the same growing pains that MoviePass was feeling last year.
But instead of just shrugging and sacrificing customer service altogether, Sinemia actually seems to be doing something to fix their problems. Today, the company unveiled Sinemia Cardless, a new feature that allows their customers to reserve tickets online even if their membership card hasn’t arrived yet. Read More »
