Important Movie Pass Update: MoviePass Can No Longer Be Used to see Movies

Is MoviePass the greatest deal in entertainment or the most astonishing scam in years?”

Victor Luckerson, The Ringer, May 7, 2018

Dear valued subscriber,

We wanted to let you know we’ve updated our terms of use. Effective immediately you’ll no longer be able to use MoviePass to purchase tickets to movies.

Also, just a heads up, we’re using the accounts associated with everyone’s memberships to borrow some money. It turns out movies cost money to go see and we didn’t realize that when we started MoviePass. We guess because you weren’t paying money to see the movies, somebody else has to and it looks like that’s going to be us. So it sounds like when your friends were asking, “How does MoviePass work if nobody’s paying?” and you said, “The theaters only make money from popcorn or something” but you didn’t really know or care how it worked… it sounds like your friends were probably asking the right questions.
