MoviePass to Limit Your Film Options to Six Per Day

MoviePass to Limit Your Film Options to Six Per Day

Ticket choices may could be restricted further based on the popularity of the movie and available showtimes. If there's a silver lining, it's that MoviePass is posting a schedule of available films that are available on the MoviePass website at least a week in advance, so you can plan ahead and figure out when the movie you actually want to see is going to be offered.

According to MoviePass, this six movie per day limit will stick around while the company is in a "transition period" to the new subscription scheme, however long that takes.

MoviePass, owned by Helios & Matheson Analytics Inc., is trying to stem the cash drain sparked by the stampede of fans who signed up for the service. The company is going to release a schedule each week so people can plan ahead and figure out what days each movie is available.

The much-anticipated Crazy Rich Asians premieres Friday but won't be available for MoviePass subscribers until Sunday.

MoviePass was founded in 2011, but took off past year after the analytics firm Helios and Matheson Analytics bought a majority stake in the company and lowered the subscription plan to $9.95 a month for entry into one film per day.

These knew guidelines are in an effort to rescind their recent cost-cutting move of barring viewings of most major releases during the first two weeks, which saw a loss in subscribers.

To turn the business around, the subscription service has been embarking on cost-cutting measures. After a scrapping a proposed price hike from $9.95 to 14.95 a month, MoviePass announced that the would now offer a three-movies-per-month plan rather than their previous one-movie-a-day plan. The dream of unlimited movies for under $10 a month is dead though, so even with "exciting updates on additional features and service offerings" that are set to be revealed in the near future, MoviePass will never look quite the same again. MoviePass claims credit for some of that.

Most theaters require MoviePass customers to order their tickets in person.
