MoviePass Will Add A Family Plan Next Month (Same Pricing, But Can Bundle Tickets)

According to CinemaBlend movie subscription service MoviePass will add a family plan next month. This is something that we’ve previously known about, but now we have specifics. Here is how family plans will work:

  • Each member of the family will need their own MoviePass account
  • You can link up to four accounts (why only four? many families are much bigger)
  • One main account can then buy up to four tickets at once for the same screening

Disappointing to see no discounted pricing, although it’s something they have hinted might happen in the future. The limit of four people per family seems incredibly stupid and I’m not exactly sure why that limitation is in place. Still this might make things easier on families/friends when trying to purchase multiple tickets for the same screening. Sinemia offers something similar with it’s sinemia for two plan, but that is more directed towards couples.

Can existing accounts link together or is this only for new subscriptions beginning after they launch the family plans?

“Disappointing to see no discounted pricing”

Well holy hell they’re bleeding money as it is, make it even easier to use the pass in ways people usually see movies (with their spouse and/or kids) and you’re inviting disaster even faster.

Limit everyone to 5 movies per month. Still better than the competition, but will reign in the loss leaders.**

** Note Yes the people watching 10-20 Movies per month are great advertising. But you’d still get practically the same advertising at 5 movies per month (Or creating a more expensive premium subscription.) If you’re the best price out there why would they purchase elsewhere?

Limiting to 3-4 is also doable, but then that risks*** losing people like myself that have a wild imagination that ” One of these days” I’m going to see a bunch of movies in the same month. After signing up in Feb my average had been less than 2 per month and dwindling. I’ve never seen more than 3 in the same month, and if I’ve even seen 3 it was only once.

– Currently it’s been over a month since I last saw a movie, but that should change between Vacation coming up mixed with an array of movies out that I’m ready to see.

*** Okay realistically lower limits are not likely to make me switch in itself. – But I would be much more likely to compare prices with the competition since “The Buffet is gone anyway” I might as well get the best price for 2 movies per month. ($6.99 for Sinemia. They support half the theaters that Movie pass does in my area. But they do support all the main higher priced ones, including the one I actually go to. – They fail to support our one locally owned theater. – Movie pass does support)

Paying “full price” you can see 30 movies a month as a 4 person family for $40. NEED MOAR DISCOUNTS!!!!!

“Disappointed to see no discounted pricing…” – you realize that this is EXTREMELY discounted as it is? And they are bleeding money?
I would prefer to see an option that allowed viewing of 3D or iMax movies for a slight surcharge.

I’d prefer them to allow advance ticket purchases. They’re already asking many of us (if not all) to send in a picture of our tickets as well as restricting us to watching a movie once, and advance purchases will make it infinitely easier for those of us who use reserved seating theaters.

But for those of us whose theater’s don’t have reserved seating theatres or who have plenty of seats available, we’d rather have access to iMax and 3D.

I think overtime these features will come to Moviepass. Even if they come with a surcharge, I’m all for it because this would bring value to the service.

So I’m assuming this will get rid two previous restrictions from the terms of MoviePass?

1. All members must be 18 years of age.
2. You can only have two subscriptions per home address.
