    Has everybody quit? I'm still on it and the erratic showings make no sense to me. One theater today is blocked out, while another one is available, and they are both owned by the same company.

    I'm still on it but haven't used it since the week before last. Seems like it would still work for the theater and movie I would want to go to tonight ("Leave No Trace" at a Regal).

    I've canceled, but it's still active until my last month runs out. So I was able to use it this past weekend while I was out of town, and they actually had some e-ticket theaters there.

    Anyways, back in town now, and I've gone ahead and signed up for A-List. Going to an advanced screening of BlacKkKlansman tonight in Dolby, which would've normally cost $17. So my first month's already paid off.

    I'm resisting that since a) AMC is owned by the Chinese (seriously, look it up) and I don't wanna give them any more money since they are fucking up the real estate market on the West Coast and b) there's only one AMC theater in my city

    "b)" sounds like the better reason. Your money's going to the Chinese at a higher rate than $20/month through countless other products...

    I still have it, but that's only because there isn't a decent AMC theater near me and paying for movies is out of control crazy expensive for me at the moment. Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Really hoping for Regal to announce their own plan sooner rather than later.

    So MP just sent out an email stating they're moving to three movies per month, with any additional movie afterward offering a $5 discount off the ticket price. It appears they're also doing away with surge pricing (though technically, the "discount" is really just a different way of wording how surge pricing already mostly works), though they'll still be blocking off certain movies from being available.

    That doesn't sound appealing at all when you describe it like that. So many stipulations and hoops to jump through...

    It's really the blocking that bugs me, esp. since it's so erratic. It makes it hard to plan when one day one theater will be blocked and the next day it'll be some other theater and the previous blocked theater will be fine. I'll have to see how I feel, but l think I'll stick with it (providing they stay in business) since once Oscar season gets in full swing around October/November, MP will save me a ton of money still. August/September have always sucked for moviegoers in general.

    I'm sticking with it. For whatever reason, it seems like Alamo movies sometimes have all their movies available to watch, even if they aren't the "selected movies of the day."

    If it weren't for the e-ticketing and the random Alamo movies, I'd probably have cancelled this.

    It's that time of the year where all the movies will end up at the Landmarks that interest me anyway, so I see no reason to cancel until they make e-ticketing harder.

    Same. I'm sure I'll see 4-5 movies a month from October to January (Oscar season), so it's still worth it for me. It's just erratic what movies are available on certain days, but I'm flexible enough to see a "free" movie on the weekday if that's what I have to do.

    I'm just lucky to have four radially different theaters that have e-ticketing, so I can basically see anything as desired.
