    Moviepass and its Impact on the Box Office

    I’ll probably cancel before my next billing cycle next week. I can’t see anything at my local Regal without surge pricing today. Not a single show. And MI6 is obliviously not available to check in for at all. That’s ridiculous. Ill probably sign up for amc a list after I cancel. I’m already a stubs premiere member anyway. But it is farther from home, so a little more inconvenient. And I don’t get my regal points to use on movie posters. I also wish amc would add a family/bring a guest plan. I really don’t need to see 3 movies a week. I’d be perfectly happy seeing 1-2 movies a week, but having the ability to get 2 or more tickets to that same show, so I can bring my son or wife without paying for an individual ticket. I’d pay $25-$30 a month for a 2 movie/week for up to 2 people or $20 a month for 1 movie/week for up to 3 people.
  2. Yeah, but they aren’t letting anyone check in for MI6, so I guess that money is earmarked elsewhere.

    The peak pricing really is out of control. The first weekend I saw it show up, it was $3.75 and it was only movies opening that weekend, and not even all showtimes, which makes sense. Now, a couple weeks later, and it’s a Thursday night. Realistically you’d expect Mission Impossible and Teen Titans to hit peak pricing. But at my local Regal in Ohio, which I wouldn’t even consider a busy theatre except Fri-Sun, they’ve also got Mamma Mia (partially understandable), Skyscraper (wtf?), Equalizer 2, and Ant Man (3 week’s after release). And peak is now $6! The only shit that’s not on peak is Sorry to Bother You, Incredibles, Jurassic World, Sicario, and Ocean’s 8. All of which I’ve seen. Im fine not seeing things opening weekend, or over some holiday period between Christmas and New Years while I avoid peak pricing. But Ant Man and Skyscraper? There are 5 tickets sold between them an hour before showtime. Jesus Christ. Hell, 90 mins out and Equalizer only has 3 tickets sold, and Mamma Mia none. How do these showtimes justify peak pricing? What data are they basing this on? And 2 hours out and Teen Titans has 9 tickets sold, while MI6 in 2.5 hours has zero sold. They want to institute peak pricing, fine, but at least make reasonable decisions based on actual data, not just some asshole in an office somewhere trying to milk every extra dollar they can before they close up show.

    Aww man, that sucks. I used to be a manager there back in the day. Loved working at that location. The design was different from any other AMC. Weekdays were usually dead, and even weekends compared to other area AMC's weren't bad unless there was a Disney movie out. You had your choice of lunch locations in DTD, and getting a cast ID and sign on pass were huge perks I didn't get anywhere else. It just never performed as well as other locations in the market or the one in Orlando. What are they putting in it's place?

    Moviepass and its Impact on the Box Office

    I'd be curious to know what, if any, impact the policy about only seeing movies once has had on the box office of something like Infinity War (or other big titles like Deadpool 2 and Solo) compared to Black Panther. We all know AIW has made a ton of money and set an opening weekend record, yet it's legs have not been as strong as BP. Whether that's due to genuine market factors (rewatchabilty, demographics, competition, etc) or, in some small part, to the fact that Moviepass users were able to watch BP as many times as they wanted, while the single watch policy was implemented right before AIW came out, would be interesting to study.

    If showtimes are missing, you should still be able to use the "unlisted showtime" function to check in. It happens sometimes. I figure it's either people movie hopping to a movie they've already seen once and can't check into again, or people checking into movies they never plan to see and buying tickets just to get rewards points at their theatre of choice.

    Yeah, Nolan filmed in a traditional IMAX ratio for those scenes in TDK. AIW was not filmed in that ratio, even though they used "IMAX" cameras.
  8. It does make you wonder how much of an impact (if any) Moviepass' policy update restricting repeat viewings has had on AIW, and will continue to have going forward on tentpole features.
  9. And Terminator has an iconic theme song.
  10. Didn’t Rampage move up a week as a result of AIW moving up a week? It still had the same separation.

    Guess I better start hanging onto my stubs after I see a movie, just in case, haha.

    I thought the "take a picture of your ticket stub" policy was designed to prevent fraud. But taking a picture of a stub wouldn't prevent me from reselling the ticket after that or just checking in and buying tickets solely for the purpose of gaining loyalty rewards points at bigger theatres, while not seeing a movie I've either already seen or never planned on seeing. So taking a picture of a stub is useless, unless people were checking in and using the predetermined amount to charge something other than a movie ticket to the card (like concessions or something), and that is what they are actually trying to prevent (along with discouraging people from checking in for rewards points on movies they've already seen).

    Monday Numbers - A:IW 24.74M

    TFA also released when the majority of kids were out of school for winter break. A very low percentage of schools (mostly college) are out at the end of April. AIW had the highest April Monday ever. I think it will be ok.
