MoviePass: Watch All The Latest Movies In the Theater for Just $9.95/month!?


DO YOU ALREADY HAVE MOVIEPASS?  If so, please leave a comment and share your experience. If not, read on friend. Read on.

Last week when chatting with a friend she casually mentioned going to see The Greatest Showman with her MoviePass. She said it like, being Coupon Katie, I obviously knew what she was talking about. I did not. 🙂

She proceed to explain to me this subscription program that is just 10 bucks a month and gets you access to one movie of your choice per day at participating theaters. Every day if you want.

What?! That sounds too good to be true. How is that even a thing?

But it is. I did a lot of research and started asking a lot of friends in the frugal happenings world.

It really is only $9.95 per month no commitment, and there are no blackout dates. As a MoviePass member, you can see up to one standard 2D film per calendar day.

THE HUSBAND loves seeing movies in the theater so he is thrilled with this.


How to get your MoviePass

1. Head and type in your zipcode to see if there are theaters in your area that accept the MoviePass cards. (There are over 4,000 theaters currently accepting the cards. )

For local readers, when I put in my zip here hare the theaters that showed up:
Regal Knoxville Center Stadium 10
Halls Cinema
Carmike 10 Knoxville
Regal Riviera Stadium 8
Regal West Town Stadium 9
Regal Downtown West Cinema 8
Carmike Wynnsong 16 Knoxville
Carmike Movies 7
Regal Pinnacle Stadium 18 & IMAX

2. If there are theaters close to you, sign up for the MoviePass subscription. It’s $9.95 per month.

3. Your MoviePass cards will arrive in the mail within 8-10 business days. Your account will be charged when you purchase the subscription, but your subscription dates will be adjusted to reflect the date you actually activate your card (you won’t be paying for a subscription for the 8-10 days while you wait for your card to arrive).

4. Once your card arrives, download the MoviePass app to your phone and connect it to your MoviePass card. (Sign in with MoviePass login info and typing in the last 4 digits of your card.)

5. Browse theaters and showtimes on your MoviePass App and start using your card to get in to a movie every single day if you wish.
