  1. Okay, I have nothing to say about the movies or the reviews… but then you guys started to talk about moviepass and I knew I needed to get the message out.

    Okay, here is how Moviepass makes their money- and it’s not from the subscription service. They are data-mining. This is a huge industry at this point in time, especially with a flailing business like the box office (Struggling to get people to theaters for anything other than a blockbuster is extremely difficult, art house and independent theaters are going bankrupt at alarming rates.) So moviepass is offering a double service… one, to customers that really only pays for certain costs involved in maintaining the service. And second, for datamining. they are collecting information regarding viewer trends, advertising, et al. and they are selling that information to the same marketing companies that production companies, theater companies, and other business models aim to target.

    That leaves you with Pros and Cons:

    PRO:
    If you are a regular attendee at random movies, you are paying $10 a month to see as many movies as you wish within that month.

    CONS:
    Your information is not private.
    You will be contacted, via email, to answer questionnaires.
    You must purchase your ticket within 30 minutes of showtime

    As a person on a fixed income, I am saving a LOT of money by purchasing the moviepass. The full ticket price is still paid to the theater company (And this moviepass thing is actually SAVING a local art house theater in my community), I have leftover money for concessions, and I’m able to see movies that I was otherwise on the fence about because it won’t cost me the extra cash that I may not have. We only recently had theaters start to engage in “assigned seating” (Barbarism, seriously?) so most of our theaters are first come first serve. I don’t mind so much with the art house as I show up early enough that I get the seat I want for the most part, but kind of have to guess where in the theater that seat is.

    Luckily, most other “early seaters” seem to enjoy the back row where they can feel like they’re watching the show at home as the screen is about the size of a television. Seriously… why bother?

    I don’t mind sharing info, mostly. I take part in polls all the time… gallup, Nielsen, etc etc. I like trending things a bit weird by representing my bizarre demographic.

  2. Jay, I don’t know if anyone has brought this up, but the notifications by email don’t work anymore. They haven’t worked for a long time now. Maybe you decided to do away with them, but I miss them. It’s a great way to keep up with the boards.
