Not to be left out, Sinemia has an announcement this week too: The movie-ticket subscription service is introducing family plans to its offerings. Pricing for its "For Two" tier have changed slightly, and if you want to add another person to the mix, it jumps accordingly. A three-person plan for one standard ticket (each) per month will set you back $/£14.99, while two tickets (each) per month will cost $/£24.99. Bumping up to include 3D films and one IMAX engagement boosts the price to $29.99 per month. Want three tickets (each) per month with 3D films and one IMAX showing? That'll be $/£44.99 each month.

This makes a lot of sense for Sinemia. After all, it has differentiated itself from the competition by offering its "For Two" packages from the get go. Earlier this week AMC unveiled its plans for its own "unlimited" subscription service. And yesterday, MoviePass (whom you could say started this movie ticket subscription arms race) announced that it was introducing surge pricing for movie tickets starting next month.

Essentially, the base tiers are the same as the regular Sinemia prices, it's just that one person pays the bill instead of each person doing it individually. Sinemia extending its trademark feature to packages that nuclear-family sized and above could make it much more convenient for folks with kids. Here's how it breaks down for the other packages:

  • $8.99/£8.99 - One movie day for two people per month (total two tickets per month).
