MoviePass Chief Executive Mitch Lowe said in an interview that the new policy, which takes effect August 15, will reduce the company's cash burn rate by more than 60% and make its attempted transition to profitability "more manageable". However, MoviePass claims that only 15 percent of its members actually watch four or more movies per month.
MoviePass was planning to raise the price of its monthly movie-going subscription from $9.95 to $14.95, but is walking that change back.
For example, if a MoviePass user wants to see the "Aquaman" movie this winter they should be able to see it at MoviePass-compliant theaters on opening weekend, with none of the issues that plagued the service during the opening of the latest "Mission: Impossible" film.
The change is part of a new model MoviePass hopes will "ensure long-term stability". As word that the company was operating at a $45 million deficit and counting went public in June, the service began imposing surge pricing making subscribers pay an additional surcharge to see popular films at peak times.
As stock prices and subscriber numbers continue to slip for the subscription service, MoviePass, the online service has announced a new model for subscribers.
Though MoviePass says it's not raising prices to $15, there's still a hidden price increase.
In addition, subscribers to the new plan can also receive up to a $5.00 discount for any additional movie tickets.
The app suffered a minor meltdown last month when Helios & Matheson ran low on cash, causing the app to stop working. Furthermore, peak pricing and ticket verification is being suspended under the new plan.
MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe blamed the change on the small number of users who were taking advantage of the "unlimited" promise.
