As 2018 nears its end, and the movie theater subscription service boom evens out, companies are altering their terms as they attempt to remain profitable. AMC just announced it would be increasing the price of the Stubs A-List ticket plan in select states beginning in 2019, and now Sinemia says it’s actually bringing the cost of its subscription down for some users.
The new plans will offer tickets to movies from Monday through Thursday only, essentially making Fridays and weekends blackout days. “We’re constantly striving to help people see movies more affordably, while doing so in a way that supports the entire movie-going economy,” Sinemia CEO Rifat Oguz says in a press release. “With our new weekday plans, people can see movies at an even steeper discount, encouraging attendance on days where most movie theaters have many empty seats.”
As part of the new plans, prices will drop anywhere from $1 each month for the one-ticket plan to $6 per month for the “unlimited” plan. The prices for the new weekday subscriptions are as follows:
- $3.99 per month (compared to $4.99)–One ticket to any movie per month
- $8.99 per month (compared to $10.99)–Three tickets to any movie per month
- $9.99 per month (compared to $12.99)–Two tickets to any movie per month including 3D, 4D and IMAX formats
- $14.99 per month (compared to $17.99)–Three tickets to any movie per month including 3D, 4D, IMAX formats
$23.99 per month (compared to $29.99)–One ticket to any movie per day (2D movie tickets)
It’s important to note that Sinemia will continue to offer its full-week plans, as well as family plans for both the weekday only and full-week options.
