Several months ago, a friend recommended that I check out MoviePass, a Netflix-esque card and app that gives you access to one movie in theaters per day for the low price of $10 per month. I was about to spend three months in a foreign country, but as my return date approached and award season movies were filling my podcast queue, I decided to give it a try.
READER. This is such a good deal!! If you see at least two movies in theater per month, MoviePass more than pays for itself. I cannot imagine how it is financially lucrative, and I can only assume that prices will someday be raised. So now is the time to take advantage of this amazing deal!
In my first month using MoviePass, I’ve seen 1. Call Me By Your Name (the sexiest and most accurate First Love movie I’ve ever seen), 2. Lady Bird (a perfect depiction of what it’s like to be a teenage girl), 3. Coco (a beautifully animated story about Mexican culture and the importance of family), and the premiere of 4. Black Panther (it lives up to all of its hype omgggg)!
- MoviePass promises “Any movie, Any theater, Any day,” and so far I’ve found that to be completely true. My small Midwestern city allows MoviePass at all of its theaters, though some require the physical card and others need only the app.
- This is especially great for watching favorite movies multiple times in theaters, catching up on award season films, or checking out movies in which you wouldn’t normally invest money.
- After signing up online at moviepass.com, you have to wait up to two weeks for your physical MoviePass card to show up in the mail.
- If you want to cancel your subscription, you cannot rejoin for another nine months.
Call Me By Your Name ($8.75)
