Theater chains in particular got real spooked out by MoviePass, a subscription service startup which offers customers unlimited movie tickets at the impossibly low, low price of $10 a month ($7 during specials )-with some like AMC anxious it could drive down the price of tickets in the long run to disastrous levels.
Do you enjoy going to the movies?

The business media is making out that the new Cinemark program is some sort of threat to MoviePass with shares of the latter's corp Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. down close to 3% from the opening bell with $9.52 a share versus Cinemark's $36.21, -0.2% as of 8AM PST. Movie Club's economics make sense compared even to MoviePass, if one goes only to Cinemark theaters in groups, purchases concessions while there, and doesn't go incredibly often. Through its Movie Club, Cinemark is testing out a solution to empty seats that may prove more lasting.
Most studios at the current minute don't mind MoviePass: the app ticket service isn't taking any money out of their pocket -meaning there isn't any negative impact on a major studio's rentals- and any service that encourages moviegoing is good for business. At a time when the movie industry is in crisis-when the overall box office gross in 2017 now sits at $9.855 billion, down considerably from 2016's $11.375 billion, and endless streaming services tempt consumers to watch at home-any service that gets more people to theaters is a boon for the industry.
