When MoviePass is on the way down (and I suspect it will be), I will be watching my precious dollars go to another ticketing company. I will prefer Fandango for a few reasons:
I love the movie ticket coupons, they are extremely powerful and, for me, they are much more valuable than the ticket.
The $10 off coupons are a great deal; they make a purchase about a $1 easier. The company is already providing a complementary service to me, why not show my appreciation?
Fandango offers a much larger selection of movies and, from what I understand, they do not need to do a minimum spend on a ticket to offer their coupons. If I know a movie is a must see, I will buy a ticket. With MoviePass, I know it is a must see; why not see the movie, for free?
Fandango is not the only option. I would love to see this concept grow in a free market way. I like the idea of services like MoviePass that allows me to see all movies I want, for a reasonable price. In some ways, I hope the market kills itself. I can't enjoy my movie going experience if I have to check my credit card every time.
Last year, I visited Fandango with my 18 month old daughter. She saw Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Lego Movie. She can do that every month. Also, Fandango has a $10 off coupon. In these times, my daughter can see every movie she wants, for free, every month. I believe this is where MoviePass will go.
From the outset, I’ve said that I don’t believe MoviePass can be the movie theater company of the future. I believe it has demonstrated that it can deliver the movie theater experience. And, more importantly, for those who like it, it can deliver it with the exact same movie selection, pricing, and service level that it currently does.
