If you need a theater list, either PM me or post here a zip code. I can quickly check on my app.

Doesn't work with reserve seating??

Edit: ah, yes.

I saw Spider-Man: Homecoming at the Thursday previews with MoviePass. If I wasn't so busy earlier, I would've done the same with Guardians 2. I've never really had an issue finding tickets on opening weekend either for anything *shrug*

I signed up, figured fuck it why not. My local theater isn't show up, as any other theaters either right now like the AMCs. Must be some wonky servers right now.

Pretty much only signed up since my theater doesn't have reserved seating right now and I could've sworn I checked their list before and it was on there. Hopefully everything sorts itself out soon.

I mean, this is from 2012 and the TOS could have been updated since then, but them reserving the right to cancel your subscription at any time, coupled with the fact that if they do, you have to pay for any ticket costs that would exceed the subscription price, makes me very wary about trusting this sort of service.

Then again, that article is from 2012 so it could have changed since then :/

I've used it and had no issues.

I've had unlimited movie card in France for 8-9 years now. 20 bucks per month
All movies available (2d/3D and so on ). Reservation possible


But 10? That's nice. here for 20e you get more Benefts that taking tickets individually (collecting coins for free snacks for exemple )

Correct. The way it works is you check in at the theater using the app and it adds the amount of a ticket to the card. You need to be on the theater property to check in.

It does work with reserve seating. It's just that you need to be within the vicinity of the theater on the day of. So for example when I saw Doctor Strange at the previews of a reserved seating theater, I ended up buying my tickets ahead of time without MoviePass. That's what I recommend to do with Last Jedi or any big anticipated film that you could imagine seeing twice if you have a reserved seating theater by you that you prefer.

I love reserved seating, and I'd say when I'm at school, over half my MoviePass films are at the reserved seating theater, you just need to know how to time yourself appropiately

It does work for every Alamo Drafthouse from what I can see. I can check other theaters too, but I've been seeing the Alamo question for it a ton

Yeah, it looks like they mail you a credit/debit card and you use that at the theater to actually buy the tickets

But technically, let's just say you live really close by to the theater or it's on the way or something along those lines, there's nothing stopping you from being there a day early and booking your ticket for a future showing as long as you're within the theater property?

There is a splash screen showing reserved seating. I don't know what theaters it'll work for at this point since the app isn't really working but it seems like it could be possible in some locations.

Yeah this is what I don't like about Unlimited. I had it for a while but sometimes I just wanna join for a month to watch a shitload of art-house films in my nearest Cineworld and they don't let you do it. Odeon's one is cancel anytime IIRC.

I've used it for years with little hassle. I see multiple movies a month and can only remember 2-3 times the app messed up and their support were quick to help me out.

Signed up and immediately cancelled. Seems very scammy. Got an email and it said my first month would start when I got the card. So I raised a fuss with chat support, and he said it was actually a trial. That does not inspire confidence to say the least. I'll see what gaffers say and maybe I'll sign up later.

That said, could someone check the zip code 20877 for me. Just checking if theaters like Rio, Rockville, Kentlands or Germantown are in the list (I'll take further/any theaters, as this is a good deal overall and would make me watch a ton more movies).

Been seeing this sentiment a lot in the thread. This is outdated. Earlier this year I cancelled in March and joined again in the middle of May with no cancellation charges at all.

- You only can use it to buy one ticket.
- The app is hot trash, never leaves me logged in.
- It also has my arthouse theaters so that is a plus.

With all that said, I have found that going to the movies, even by myself allows me to shut myself off for a bit and not multitask so this saves me a ton.

Hmm, wonder if you could spoof your location to bypass that?

Edit: I got it to work and I'm seeing no theaters near 85340 or 85719, the two zip codes I'm moving between. Can any one confirm that? If so I'm cancelling this before I get my card.

$10 a month seems insane! I just signed up, even though it is fucking stupid you can't see theaters until after. It works at my theater, including their luxury seating (big ass, reserved seats, no kids under 12 allowed). This seriously seems like an unbelievable deal.

Their app is acting pretty screwy right now, though. Don't know if it's 'cause they are being hammered, or 'cause their app just blows. Hopefully the former.

It does not. However, if your theater is doing a type of re-release, like for example AMC's recent re-release of Lion King, it does work for that.
