    More and more people are talking about it all over the site, so I thought it might be nice to have one place to discuss all things MoviePass.

    How many films did you get to see this week?

    Anything new/off the radar that you might recommend checking out?

    I've had mine for about 6 weeks now and have seen 8 movies, I think. It's been great, but I find myself checking showtimes daily and trying to squeeze something in whenever possible.

    Anyone know anything about these movies? These are all coming out tomorrow at my local theaters and I'm trying to find some new/different stuff to watch since I've already seen everything else playing.

    Murder on the Orient Express was solid, never read the book. Josh Gad needs to be in every movie.

    Do I need to buy one of these?

    Absolutely.

    Like I said, I'm only 6 weeks in, so things could go down hill, but at this point, I can't really see any reason not to get one.

    I've paid $19.98 total so far and have watched 8 movies. I have 17 days before I will be charged $9.99 again, and could potentially see 17 more movies before then.

    I feel stupid, but I don't fully understand how this works? Can someone explain it to my dumbass?

    I ordered my card early September, took mid-October to get here, in which time my local theater stopped allowing online purchasing so I have to physically be there to get my ticket. Not a big deal, but the theater is assigned seating so it can limit my experience a bit.

    I typically buy my tickets through the electronic kiosks at the movie theater rather than waiting in lines. Do I just swipe the MoviePass card like a credit card? Or do I need to go to an actual person

    if moviepass wanted as many people as possible to have this thing, they definitly did their job.

    I wonder if their gameplan is to have such a large subscription base, that eventually movie theater companies will see the value of partnering with them, and that's how they'll end up making the splash?

    You download an app. Go on the app, you can see theaters, showtimes, etc... Find a movie you want to see. When you get to the theater, load the app and select the movie/showtime you want, it will then say "Check in" - Once you check in, you a credit is loaded to your MoviePass card (kinda like a debit card) - You then have 30 minutes to go to the box office/kiosk and buy your ticket (using the MoviePass card) - You can see one movie a day

    Awesome. Thank you! Have to look into the costs, but sounds like it's worth it.

    Got the year subscription and I've already seen 3 movies with it. Unfortunately my theater isn't getting a single new movie this week. Really looking forward to I, Tanya and The Disaster Artist next week though!

    Got my movie pass, but I can't activate it. The app didn't prompt me for the card like it was supposed to. I just wanna see a movie man!

    Drove an hour for an Alamo Drafthouse, I never want to go back to my local Regal. Bless you Moviepass, bless you.

    Glad you got it fixed quickly. I've read their customer service is a major problem and that it's extremely difficult to get ahold of someone.

    Disaster Artist was hysterical but I definitely recommend seeing The Room first.
