“MoviePass™ is attracting people back to the movie theaters by lowering their cost, which we believe is transformational for the industry,” said Ted Farnsworth, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of HMNY. “We believe the data MoviePass™ collects from these million and a half movie-goers will become an important asset to our partners and the future of the movie industry,” Mr. Farnsworth continued.
MoviePass™, the nation's premier movie-theater subscription service and a majority-owned subsidiary of Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY), and Fandor®, the streaming service with the largest collection of independent films, documentaries, international features and shorts, today announced that both companies are partnering with Costco to offer a one-year subscription plan for a flat fee of $89.99. The package deal for both services is available exclusively to Costco members and covers a year of membership for both MoviePass and Fandor.
“I look forward to this conference for many reasons,” said Mitch Lowe. “Speaking with these well-entrenched entertainment executives will be both a pleasure and an honor, and learning what they foresee for this often surprising and ever-evolving industry is sure to help MoviePass remain in the forefront of this exciting revolution.”
