Everyone's favorite company that we are all highway robberying, MoviePass, has met with another setback Thursday, as they were forced to halt services because well, they didn't have enough money to continue services.
This setback is one of many the company has faced this year, including changing their business model to limit the amount of movies patrons can see a month, as well as introducing surge pricing for popular films and film times.
The poor folks are in over their hand and are HEMORRAGING money. If you have MoviePass, you may not have it much longer.
To our subscribers - we are aware an investigating an issue that is preventing users from checking-in to movies this evening. We ask for your patience as we look into this and recommend waiting for further updates before heading to the theater.-- MoviePass (@MoviePass) July 26, 2018
New MoviePass members will get a bottle of lube with their debit cards for all the times they will get fucked over by @moviepass. Current subscribers will just have to take it dry-- Just a Guy (@JustaGuy_Tampa) July 26, 2018
Thanks for a beautiful, cheap as hell ride MoviePass. We're pulling for you. But we're also not stupid.

Surprised and sad to see that Movie Pass's "all the movie tickets you want for basically nothing" business model didn't work out-- Allahpundit (@allahpundit) July 27, 2018

Opened MoviePass and it says, "We should all be reading more, honestly."-- Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) July 27, 2018
Apparently Movie Pass is having some serious tech issues, but I can report that "buying the cheapest matinee ticket and then hiding in the bathroom between shows before sneaking into a second movie" is still functioning.-- Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) July 27, 2018

MoviePass still serves its primary purpose: pulling out your card at a cashier, saying "oops sorry" and getting your your credit card.-- Hana Michels (@HanaMichels) July 27, 2018
