MoviePass’ main independent rival Sinemia is introducing a new unlimited plan not unlike the one that saw MoviePass soar to great heights before plummeting to Earth like Icarus.
The ticketing app has unveiled its Sinemia ‘Always Unlimited’ Plan, which allows subscribers to watch one 2D movie a day for $14.99 a month – only $5 more than the infamous MoviePass plan.
Users can book movie tickets online for showtimes any time of the day and can reserve their seats for showtimes up to 30 days in advance. In addition, they’re going slightly global with the plan set to be available not just in the United States but also the UK, Canada and Australia.
Rifat Oguz, founder and CEO of Sinemia says in a press release: “We believe that moviegoers should not be limited to specific showtimes when they go to the movies. That’s why we made sure that our users can book a ticket for whenever they want and are not limited to a small window of showtimes.”
Sinemia has been steadily rolling out new tiered plans since MoviePass hits its problems, but the company has struggled to keep in the conversation as theatre chain programs like AMC A-List have been far more successful though not reaching as high as MoviePass did.
