|New York, New York (January 9, 2018) — Less than 30 days after announcing
its milestone of 1 million subscribers, MoviePass™, the nation’s premier
movie theater subscription service and a majority-owned subsidiary of
Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (Nasdaq: HMNY) announced today that
MoviePass™ added another 500,000 new paying subscribers since December 12,
2017. MoviePass™ subscribers can see a movie every day of the month for a
low monthly subscription fee of $9.95.
|“MoviePass™ is attracting people back to the movie theaters by lowering
their cost, which we believe is transformational for the industry,” said
Ted Farnsworth, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of HMNY. “We believe
the data MoviePass™ collects from these million and a half movie-goers will
become an important asset to our partners and the future of the movie
industry,” Mr. Farnsworth continued.
|MoviePass™, led by Mitch Lowe, its Chief Executive Officer, worked with
HMNY to change the MoviePass™ monthly subscription fee to $9.95 in August
2017 resulting in the service’s recent national attention and success in
attracting new paying subscribers.
|“Based on the dramatic increase in the number of MoviePass subscribers over
such a short period of time, we believe MoviePass will continue to grow its
subscriber base significantly,” said Mitch Lowe, Chief Executive Officer of
MoviePass™. “We’re giving people a reason to go back to the movie theaters
and they’re going in droves. With awards season here, we hope we can make
Hollywood and exhibitors very happy by filling seats with eager audiences.”
