    Interesting. Special features are the bread and butter of AD, and already sell out regularly.

    In Austin, they screened Ran (a retelling of King Lear in feudal/Samurai Japan, Dir by Kurosawa) in 35mm and that was nearly a sell out. Well Ran got a 4k restoration that same summer, and I requested the programming staff to screen the restored version. The programming staff replied something along the lines "we just screened that but ill see what we can do". Well turns out they did screen it and it was a ~sellout too.

    I will have to think about the 7 day thing. It's possible that user is on a variation of the Season Pass with different terms/rules than they will go public with. I will admit, even with MoviePass at its heyday of nearly 0 restrictions, and multiple ADs near me, I did pay for some out of pocket tickets just for convenience.

    I'm next to AH high school. You?

    I carry the Cinemark version for $9.95/month and that is doing the job, tickets roll over, so "you can't lose". The program is fine, but the theater is pretty sub-optimal, said with full acknowledgement as an AD snob. The Cinemark I go to (Rave 13 or w/e) is pretty run of the mill.

    Something tells me the NHR location will miss its planned April open date.

    Are you going to a Times Square or Piccadilly Circus location or something? I don't even think the tickets at most LA locations cost that much, unless you're talking about a 3D/Imax screening.

    I was hoping the theater in Clearfork would’ve been AD instead of an AMC, that would’ve been perfect for them

    I don’t want to do any subscription service unless there’s e-ticketing and no time/day restriction

    I just paid $12.50 per ticket at my local movie theatre on a fucking Wednesday night to watch John Wick 3.

    I’d gladly pay $10 a month
