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

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.
