Alamo Drafthouse MoviePass Introduce New Cinema Subscription Options

first_imgStay on target For £17.90 (less than $24) per month, I can see unlimited films (and get 10 percent off concessions) at any location of a popular UK cinema chain.Considering one adult ticket costs nearly £12, if I see even two movies a month, I’m already saving money. And that’s enough for me to justify premium membership. And while movie theater gimmicks are nothing new, Alamo Drafthouse’s Season Pass is.The entertainment group has been beta testing a ticket subscription service in New York, North Carolina, and now Colorado. The unlimited plan will launch across all theaters by the end of the year.“It’s working for us, and we love it,” company founder and CEO Tim League told Business Insider. “It’s one of our biggest priorities this year, to get that rolled out.”For $20 a month, Alamo Victory members can tap into the mobile app to reserve seats and access tickets to any standard 2D movie (premium flicks with premium prices could require an additional charge).“Head straight into the theater, find your spot, and show your ticket to your server. It’s that easy,” according to a recent blog post.Still in the beta phase, Season Pass is testing different features at different price points; it’s possible one user may subscribe to a slightly divergent plan than someone else.It is also possible that the features or price point you initially subscribe to may change over time. Users will be notified of any modifications and given the chance to cancel.(via MoviePass)Want to get more bang for your buck?
