    A) The name of an old school porno theater
    B) The title of a scat porn flick you can't unsee
    C) The title of a low-budget 1980s horror movie where movie theater patrons are knocked off one by one by a mysterious killer
    D) The MoviePass knockoff equivalent of a Sambung or Sorny TV

    Kind of. It's actually been around a while and lowered the price in recent weeks to lure Movie Pass subscribers over. It's the same $9.99 per month for three movies deal, but there are no restrictions. It's any movie, any theater, and you can even buy your tickets up to 30 days ahead of time.

    You have to pay for it annually, which is the only drawback as far as I can tel. I just completed signup, but it's going to take a week or two for it to be activated. That should about coincide with my next Movie Pass payment, so I'll cancel it then.

    MoviePass proved the model is extremely volatile. Your description has me interested, but are there any details about this company's finances?

    I still have MoviePass. The number of movies you can use it at is pretty limited. Despite the email from the CEO a couple of weeks ago, my app is still not showing a schedule of what will be available in the coming days (you can see it on the website, though) and I still had to send in a photo of my ticket stub when I went to a non-e-ticketing location. I'm planning to keep it until it's dead. I'll likely sign up for the AMC program, A-List, at some point, too.

    I went with the Cinemark app which is only one free ticket per mo but all tickets are $5 off and 20% off concessions so it’s paid for itself. Plus no online fee like I was paying for Fandangos

    Because I didn't see three movies in August, I bought a ticket when I was at the mall on Aug. 31 just so I could get the Regal points. I promptly threw it away. Today I get a notification from Movie Pass that I need to upload the ticket or provide an explanation as to why I didn't. I wanted to write, "Because I thought you did away with that crappy requirement."

    Upload a picture of your shoe. Do you think anyone is actually checking it?

    After the Moviepass experience, I've got to wonder about the "buffet" model viability.

    I'm happy with our Cinemark club experience. $8.99 per ticket and 20% off concessions adds up.

    I live near an AMC. Two actually. One is 12 minutes away, the other less than 20. So I'm tempted by their $19.99 pass. Three movies a week is plenty. They show most everything I'd want to see.

    But they don't show everything I'd like to see. So that extra $10/month might be worth it to me to have access to other theaters.

    Viability? Sure, it could go belly-up like MoviePass. Just as long as I get my money's worth before.
