MoviePass Cuts Film Selections for Subscribers to 6-7 Titles per Day

MoviePass adds new restrictions on subscribers

MoviePass adds new restrictions on subscribers

The new rules come a day after MoviePass parent company Helios and Matheson reported an operating loss of $126.6 million, and revealed it burned through more than $70 million per month on average last quarter. No, sir. The saga of the movie ticket subscription service continues to unfold with a new twist - now, MoviePass will restrict what movies you can see and when, offering a limited selection of six to seven titles per day. The company is going to release a schedule each week so people can plan ahead and figure out what days each movie is available. And if you open your app, you'll find that shakes down to just about two or three titles at most local movie theaters. "In addition, showtime availability may be limited depending on the popularity of those films on the app that particular day". It costs the same as the old plan, but the unlimited aspect of the plan (which allowed users to see one movie every day) has been removed.

In an email to customers, CEO Mitch Lowe said MoviePass will offer up to six films a day to choose from. It's unclear how long MoviePass will enforce the movie limit. Want to see Crazy Rich Asians? Thriller "Mile 22", starring Mark Wahlberg as a Central Intelligence Agency operative, is scheduled to be available via MoviePass on Friday (Aug. 17), and then next Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Now unavailable through MoviePass for the next 10 days: Tom Cruise's "Mission: Impossible - Fallout".

Husband arrested in connection to missing wife, young daughters in Colorado
Police have not released any details about a possible motive or when, where and how Shanann and her daughters were killed. Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke said his office will have until Monday to file formal charges against Watts.

So, today for instance, subscribers will be able to get tickets for Blackkklansman, The Meg, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, We The Animals, Skate Kitchen, Juliet, Naked, and Summer of 84.

In another sign of distress at the company, this week multiple MoviePass users who tried to cancel their service discovered that the company had re-enrolled them in the new monthly plan, according to various reports. MoviePass insisted those cases were the result of a technical bug, which was fixed on Tuesday.
