A Movie Buffet?



We've all heard of all-you-can-eat, but all-you-can-watch is a whole new concept. A new company is going to let people watch all the movies they can stand for only $50 a month. They're starting out in San Francisco, but if things work out well, they're hoping to expand nationally. What do you guys think, would you buy the pass?

No I don't go to the cinema at all, to make that worth it.

$50 is a good part of a cable TV or Internet+Netflix subscription. I would sooner spend it on that.

Around here ticket prices are still under $10 so I would have to see at least six films to get my money's worth. I like the idea but the price is too high. I think theaters would make more money on this ticket model because most people just won't go to enough movies to make up the price of the pass. Maybe if they throw in a soda with every movie it would be a better deal.

Convenience of at home viewing aside, films are not shot to be watched at home. The cinematic apparatus is a big part of the viewing experience that cannot be replicated sitting in your living room. Unless you have an actual home theatre you will be missing part of the experience of watching a film.

The important point many folks are missing (probably because the author failed to mention it here) is that these are movies in the theater, not movies at home via streaming or disc. A rather glaring omission, author.

That said, I don't think I go through $50 worth of theater tickets per month, so no.
