The cheapest way to cut the cord is to ditch cable and use an over-the-air antenna to watch local TV. Here are the best no-installation options for indoor antennas.
AMC recently announced it would be competing with MoviePass. Now, Sinemia is coming at MoviePass from the other side, with competitive family plan pricing.
So far, neither MoviePass nor AMC’s A-List have family plans. If you and your partner or kids want to go see movies together, you’ll need a separate subscription for each one of them. It’s a weird feature to lack, given that not everyone even agrees on whether it’s weird to see movies alone (it is not, fight me). MoviePass says a family plan is coming, but Sinemia has beaten everyone to the punch with a set of family plans at a variety of price points.
Sinemia doesn’t just have one family plan. It has a lot of them, just like it has a lot of options for individual plans. At the cheapest, you can spend $15/month to get one ticket for three people every month. If you want to bring your group of three to the movies twice a month, the price bumps up to $25/month. And for $29/month, your group can add IMAX or 3D movies. On a per-person basis, this makes ticket prices pretty cheap—it’s hard to beat $5 a head!—but it’s also a lot less flexible than MoviePass, which aims to let you go to the theater as often as you want.
The plans can also scale up with more people:
For three people:
For four people:
For five people:
For six people:
Overall, if you and your family go to a lot of movies, then you could save yourself a good bit of cash. However, Sinemia’s plans are less about getting the option to go see every movie in the world, and more about saving on a monthly night out or two. None of Sinemia’s plans allow for more than three movies a month. Which, if we’re honest, is fine for most people. So, if you only have a moderate desire to go to the theater more often, want to bring a few friends or the family with you, and want to save some cash, Sinemia might be more attractive for you than MoviePass or AMC’s A-List.
