They lowered the price down to $6.95/month recently (for annual plan). You can check by zip code to see which theater will accept this.

I checked by zipcode and NO HARKINS theater will accept this. Regal and AMC will accept it though. There are other theaters that i don't know about for my area.

We do not go to the movie that often but 1 movie a day for $83.4+ tax? that's a pretty good deal for people who will got o the movies often.

Those of us who have had Moviepass since its inception are starting to think that this is a signal of "the end".
The amount of cinemas that accept Moviepass members is declining (not locally, just overall).
Last night, they had an outage that caused me to pay full price for a ticket.
Thankfully their policy is simply to reimburse you if anything should go wrong.
Save your ticket stubs if this ever happens to you, just an "FYI".

It also doesn't cover premium cinemas, which is mostly okay.
In the event that I'm planning on going alone, Moviepass is absolutely perfect.
When going with my significant other, not so much (only one ticket per Moviepass user/account at the moment).
Some films my girlfriend simply refuses to see (too emotional, too "weird", or just too "nerdy") so that leaves me with a Moviepass account for all of the other times that I just want to chill away from the house for a few hours.

Pretty much.
When you sign up, they send you a card that you can use.
You use the application to choose the film you want to see.
When you choose the movie and time, you "check in" (when you're near the cinema) and your MoviePass card is loaded with the specific amount required for the ticket.
You only have 30 minutes to use your MoviePass card, though.
Alternatively, if the cinema you go to has an electronic ticketing system you will be given a confirmation code to put into their kiosks (no "MoviePass Card" required for these).

If you do decide to go with MoviePass, remember that there are rumors circulating that AMC Cinemas will not honor MoviePass-purchased tickets come New Year's Day (2018).

man, you Americans have it so good. You have the full crunchyroll, funimation, VRV and whatnot. The only thing I get in Europe when I want to watch anything English dubbed is a "This content is not available in your region". 7 bucks a month for a cinema flatrate sounds nice though.
Edit: so wait, that moviepass thing is not a flatrate but rather a creditcard? So you still have to pay for every movie? than that's not so nice

It is a flat rate.
The "credit card" aspect is closer to a pre-paid card.
When you choose the film, time, and cinema, you check-in and the card is loaded with the balance required for the ticket.
You, yourself, only pay $6.95 a month ($89.95 one-time annual fee) and you can watch a movie a day at the cinema.
You do not pay for each ticket individually, all 30/31 tickets to movies per month are paid by MoviePass - you just pay the membership fee.

The card is more so a "means to an end" because some cinema companies are trying to block MoviePass users.
AMC Cinemas has already blocked electronic ticketing from MoviePass and the physical card is the only way to go to AMC cinemas using MoviePass.
