I was an early subscriber to MoviePass, or at least early after the $9.99 unlimited plan debuted a year ago. Ironically, all the troubles it’s facing now weren’t present then. But I still regret subscribing, because I simply couldn’t make enough use of it.
During the months of September, October and November, I couldn’t find a single movie I really wanted to see in a theater. Plus, I never go on my own, so paying full price for my wife’s ticket kind of killed the thrill. After four months, I cancelled the subscription — just in the nick of time, because by now I’d *really* be regretting it.
