Costs are insane and I only go rarely and during school time so I don't have to deal with idiots. Usually the first showing is around $6.
Last time I went to a night showing, there was a riot and I think a dozen different police departments were called to help.

I loved my Moviepass acount.... several months ago. Pick a movie, go see it, problem free, everything worked fine.
Then the shit hit the fan, they ran out of money, and I have been unable to see a movie at all in the past 30 days. Every time I login it says no more showings for today, even though my theater has at least 30 more showings.
I typically see the last showing of the day, the 10 o clock movie, and they have ran out of money by 7 PM and don't offer any later showings.
So I cancelled my account.
It was too good to be true, too many people joined, and the ponzi scheme ran out of other peoples money. What a terrible business plan, that was doomed to fail from the start.

When people are banging away in excess of 3-4, let alone 10+ movies a month, you'd have to be getting the tickets for free to make this work.

It was great while it lasted. I paid monthly and just canceled. Now I have the AMC stubs A lister subscription which is double the price but a much more sustainable model. Plus you can see imax and stuff.

Got the same deal from Costco, saw 16 movies with it. Recently cancelled and got a $60 refund.

And now, a message from the MoviePass CEO:

So haven’t been able to see a movie for the past three weeks due to restrictions and limitations. Tickets only being available for certain movies, etc.
Just happened to be heading into Costco as we were checking to see if we could do a movie today, and once again just a single movie available “Smallfoot”.
Went to Costco customer service desk with the two MoviePass cards and explained how restrictive they had become and that the plan was rendered useless.
Costco cheerfully refunded the ENTIRE price for the two passes, total of $190. I gleefully handed the cards over to them and we will now go back to our previous use of Red Box and discounted Costco Regal Cinema tickets.
Somethings are too good to be true. On the bright side, since March we did see 27 movies for “free” since we got a full refund.
I LOVE COSTCO!
"Where MY free shit?!"
What part of "...Shall not be infringed" don't you understand???
Costco is great to deal with. It sucks that the movie pass went to shit, it was a cool idea, but I'm glad it worked out for you.

It seems that MoviePass is so desperate for money that they've resorted to re-enrolling cancelled subscribers without their permission.
If you used to have a MoviePass subscription, you might want to double-check to ensure that you're not among those affected.
MoviePass sent out this email earlier this week:
Note that they're "un-cancelling" these subscriptions, and unless the member actively opts out (again), their card will start being charged again in 5 days.
Besides the whole legal quandry about restarting a cancelled account without the permission of the account holder, I suspect a large number of these folks will be unable to successfully "opt out" in time, judging by MoviePass' past history of throwing up big hurdles and delays when trying to cancel your account.
Shady, shady, shady.
(Further note that even if you stick with their new "unlimited" plan, it won't be like what it was before. When MoviePass first started, "unlimited" meant you could see any movie. Now their terms, including in this new unlimited plan, state "based on existing inventory". Which means you're limited to only one or two films per theater, and often limited to just one or two showings per day. No new releases. No popular films. No popular times. Just the dregs of whatever's least popular.)
