If someone could check 80033 and 80401 that would be very helpful. Pretty interested but not holding out any hope. Usually these things don't work out for me, lol.

If this works at the iPic in 10038 (could someone please just check that one), I am so in. If it works in manhattan at all, I'm most likely in also.

If you go on their website and click chat support they will give you available theatres near you. They said their theater search is currently down on the main page, thus its absence.

Seems like the only screenings they don't work with at my theater are Dbox and Imax. I am so glad we have a reserved seating, 2D showing screen with those big ass comfy reclining chairs. Seriously awesome that this work for that. I'll be using the shit out of it for as long as they keep this going.

My assumption is so that people don't book a spot in the theatre and then not show up? There's gotta be a better solution.

So you have to be within 100 ft to book a ticket?

That's a MAJOR downside if your local theater have all switched to reservation seating like the ones near me have. It pretty much makes it impossible to see movies with friends...or good seats

There is none for 85340 but the other has:

Century 20 El Con
Century Tucson Marketplaxe
Century Park Place Mall 20
Century Gateway 12
AMC Loews Foothills 15.

Ok, looks like the only theatres that show up right when I sign up allow for etickets?

It says get a moviepass card to show more theaters, so maybe when that comes in I could see more?

Thanks. Surprised Rio and Rockville are support, as Rio is a huge fancy theater and always full (they make $$$!) with a bunch of 3D/IMAX stuff and Rockville is reserve seating, but sounds great. Will prob sign up.

I've used the service for years. The only issue I've had is not being able to pre-book seats, but overall it's been flawless. It went up from $30 to $50 a month for me at one point, but I still see 4+ movies in the theaters each month, so I'm still saving money.

Even seeing a movie every week they said it would've been better to just pay the full price for the ticket.

At the previous price point, I'd say it wouldn't be beneficial for people who only see one movie a week. At this point though, it's kind of a no-brainer.

They will sell data from all these new users to Hollywood for millions.

I live near some theaters, so I just go in the morning before the showing, buy my ticket and I usually have zero problems. Now, if it's a speciality theater (like Metrograph or Quad or Film Society of Lincoln Center or something) that's farther away, it's more of a pain.

Looks like they are doing this to amass as many users as possible and sell that viewing data Hollywood, which will pay a pretty penny.

Fine by me! Although, one would think normal viewing habits are skewed if you are essentially seeing movies for free.

Yeah, I think this could actually work if they get enough subs. If they can get to tens of thousands of users with reliably accurate demographic data (age, gender, location, maybe even ethnicity), I would think studios will pay a pretty penny to see what type of people are actually watching their movies with that large of a sample size.

Nope, still all the same theaters in NYC are available. Like I said before, they are likely trying to incur a surge in their user base so they can sell this data to Hollywood for millions.

It works with reserved seating. It's just a bit more of a pain with reserved seating, because if you want a good seat you have to go to the theater earlier in the day to get the reserved seat, because 20 minutes before the show, it might not be available. This normally isn't a problem for 2nd-3rd week movies.

The company sends you a credit card. You check into movies in the app on your phone when you are within 100 yards of the theater. That unlocks it to be run for the price of the movie ticket.

Pretty much any theater that accepts credit cards will accept this as this company is not working with movie theaters.

The only theaters that it will most likely not accept are ones that are luxury only type situations, or that don't publish their times/prices online.

Thanks! I think what's happening is that it's only listing theaters you don't need the MoviePass card for right now, which is why all of those Regal theaters don't show up right now (there's a message at the bottom telling me to get a MoviePass card to see more theaters).

Shame Harkins isn't a part of this, they're probably the best theater chain in the state.

Also, since you can't book ahead of time, do you still get to pick your seats? All the theaters by me are reserved seating only.
