MoviePass™ Launches New Uncapped Plan and Reintroduces Revolutionary $9.95 Price For a Limited Time

The new subscription plan reduces restrictions and gives moviegoers choices from a full inventory of blockbusters and independent movies each month

3772945_MP_Red_Card@1x (1).jpg

New York, NY, March 19, 2019 — MoviePass™ today launched a new version of its revolutionary uncapped subscription plan, now available at its previous ground-breaking monthly price of $9.95.  With this uncapped plan (“MoviePass Uncapped”), moviegoers can enjoy a wide selection of movies. MoviePass Uncapped will enable subscribers to see more movies at theaters throughout the United States.

 MoviePass Uncapped is available immediately for only $9.95 per month for a 12-month subscription period when paid in advance (via ACH payment) –  this low price will be available only for a limited time. 

 For subscribers who wish to pay monthly, MoviePass Uncapped is available immediately for only $14.95 per month (via credit card payment) – this low price will be available only for a limited time.  

 The standard price of MoviePass Uncapped will be $19.95 per month (via credit card payment), upon the expiration of these limited time offers. 

 Since creating an explosive wave in the movie theater industry with its unprecedented, unlimited movie subscription plan in August 2017, MoviePass has adapted its service to combat violations of its terms of use.  With these innovations in place, MoviePass believes it is now able to offer casual moviegoers (comprising the vast majority of the movie-going public) a far wider selection of movies than under its most recent plans.  MoviePass believes these innovations will serve the interests of the MoviePass community of subscribers as a whole and will lead to greater subscriber satisfaction with the service.

 Core details of MoviePass Uncapped include the following:

 ·         No cap on the number of 2D movies subscribers can see in MoviePass’ theater network, subject only to managing network demand and availability as detailed in the MoviePass terms of use;

 ·         A large selection of blockbusters and independent films;

 ·         Access to more than 30,000 screens throughout the United States – America’s largest theater network;

 ·         The ability to reserve tickets 3 hours before showtime and check in at the theater between 30 minutes before showtime up until 10 minutes after showtime.

 “We are – and have been – listening to our subscribers every day, and we understand that an uncapped subscription plan at the $9.95 price point is the most appealing option to our subscribers,” said Ted Farnsworth, Chairman and CEO of MoviePass’ parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc.  “While we’ve had to modify our service a number of times in order to continue delivering a movie-going experience to our subscribers, with this new offering we are doing everything we can to bring people a version of the service that originally won their hearts. We’re thrilled to introduce this new uncapped plan at a price point that is unbeatable in the industry.”

 Mitch Lowe, CEO of MoviePass and previously a Founding Executive at Netflix, said that an important part of innovation is maintaining flexibility to meet changing market demands and conditions.

 “We continue to implement what we’ve learned to combat violations of our terms of use, which we believe will enable us to offer more subscribers the joy of seeing more movies on the big screen,” said Mr. Lowe.  “Today marks a notable stride in that direction, and we’re excited to be able to offer this new uncapped plan after tireless research and development efforts,” concluded Mr. Lowe.

 MoviePass’ Select, All Access and Red Carpet plans, introduced in December 2018, are no longer available for purchase but will remain effective and working for users who subscribed to them.

MoviePass™ and MoviePass Films Announce New Strategic Direction

MoviePass™ Refocuses its Business Model to No Longer Depend on Revenues from Studios and Exhibitors

Combo_Logo.jpg

New York, NY – March 6, 2019 – Following the previously announced intention to create a vertically integrated film production and exhibition company called MoviePass Entertainment Holdings Inc., MoviePass™ and MoviePass Films announced their new business strategy going forward.

 MoviePass™ and MoviePass Films plan to implement a new business model that prioritizes self-generated revenues without dependence on studios or exhibitors, to build more reliable revenue streams. 

 The future growth of the MoviePass™ group of companies will require us to take advantage of the rapidly evolving media landscape. To maximize our audience reach, we plan to focus on technological innovation and high-quality content production through our three key channels - MoviePass™ (theatrical subscription service); MoviePass Films (original content production company) and Moviefone™ (multimedia media information and advertising service).

 Below are the highlights of our strategic vision:

  • Our new business model no longer depends on achieving revenues from studios or exhibitors to succeed, but instead will prioritize the economic relationship among our MoviePass™ subscription service, MoviePass Films production business and Moviefone™ multimedia media information and advertising service.  

  • We believe the MoviePass™ subscription service will enhance box office results of MoviePass Films productions, and that revenues from our MoviePass Films productions will help fuel an expansion of our MoviePass™ subscription service, with the Moviefone™ multimedia media information and advertising service supporting the entire group of MoviePass™ companies.

  • By seeking to generate new revenues and profit centers within our own ecosystem, we believe we can accelerate our overall growth in the U.S. market.

  • MoviePass™, MoviePass Films, and Moviefone™ plan to work together in a much more interconnected fashion and share resources across each company.

  • MoviePass Films will seek to optimize its platform to accelerate content production for theatrical release as well as expand distribution deals for in-home video, and retail, transactional and international sales.

  • We believe this new model will enable us to increase our revenue per MoviePass™ subscriber. 

  • We also believe this new model will significantly enhance our subscriber satisfaction and retention by enabling us to increase inventory on the MoviePass™ subscription service, thereby providing a more consistent subscriber experience for the casual moviegoer.

  • We remain committed to offering a wide inventory of movies and enhanced box office results for our industry partners.

  • Our strategy will also focus on technology development, building stronger deterrents to prevent violations of the MoviePass™ terms of use that are costly to us and damaging to the MoviePass™ community of casual moviegoers. 

“By spending the last several months analyzing the many different aspects of our prior business model, in terms of what worked and what didn’t, I believe we’ve been able to illuminate the path forward.  We’ve taken a deep dive to understand our unique ecosystem and I believe we’re now ready to move forward at a rapid pace.  I see this as an exciting time for MoviePass and its sister companies, because we’re taking our original vision for subscription, altering it for the better, and proceeding with significant clarity,” said Ted Farnsworth, CEO of MoviePass’ parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc.

 “We have gained a tremendous amount of insight into moviegoers and the industry over this past year and a half. MoviePass™ subscription, MoviePass Films and Moviefone™ now have a winning combination that we believe will drive consumers to our films, and re-energize casual moviegoers to go more often and see great films in local theaters – films that consumers often wait to see much later through streaming services,” Mitch Lowe, CEO of MoviePass.

 “We always believed in the MoviePass™ value proposition for filmmakers.  Now, after witnessing how MoviePass™ subscribers can positively impact box office results of our own movies, I must say the opportunity of this partnership is bigger than I ever thought it would be,” said Randall Emmet, Co-CEO of MoviePass Films.  At the end of the day, we believe we will be getting people back in movie theater seats, this time to the benefit of our companies and the MoviePass™ community of casual moviegoers. That’s exciting and certainly a game-changer,” concluded Mr. Emmett.
