You’ve probably got no idea who Mitch Lowe even is. Not even an inkling, but you will praise him after you read this. Not only will you praise him, but you’ll also be thanking the movie gods that you’ll get to have your cake and and eat it too– Or you can watch your movie without breaking the bank.
The number one complaint that we hear? “Why don’t you have any new content?” –The answer? Netflix doesn’t have “new” content due to contracting. Despite what you may think, Netflix doesn’t own all the content on their site. Their original content is about the only content that they’ve got a strong hold on. Other than that, the content is contracted out to them. Almost like a car lease.
So for those movie buffs that love the new content but enjoy the shows on Netflix, you can have the best of both worlds without having to pay cable prices. The average cable bill is anywhere form $65 to $127 a month. While that prices isn’t much, that’s actually a ton that you don’t have to be spending. Especially with alternatives like Netflix and Hulu.
Now the alternatives even get you out of the house. Date night? Less than $5 for you to go out, see a movie, and get snacks. Curious? Interested in this thought? You should be. And who do we have to thank for this??
Mitch Lowe, the Ex Netflix Executive, now the CEO of this glorious, money saving invention has brought to you MoviePass. While MoviePass isn’t something that you would think spending $10 on would be a blessing, it is. Date night for under $5 is a blessing especially when you’re avid movie goers and want to enjoy your date without feeling guilty.
Speaking of not feeling guilty, I should probably mention that it’s a fee of less than $10 a month. That’s right… $9.95 per month to enjoy a movie every single day if you choose. The even better thing? There are no blackout dates. You can see movies opening night if you choose, enjoy 2D, 3D, and Imax movies if you like. Pretty snazzy, eh!
And no, there isn’t a bunch of hoops that you have to jump through or a ton of measly, little steps that you have to take to make this jaunt work. It’s a simple four step process that allows you to totally dominate date night.

Don’t make this harder than it really is. Enjoy a date night without breaking the bank or take your kids to a movie. You don’t have to feel badly if they have a meltdown in the middle of the movie and you miss the second half because you didn’t break the bank, right? Not only will you dominate date night, but you’ll also dominate parenthood, and quite possibly life in general.
You can still enjoy Netflix and Chill dates in, but get out and explore the world and end the night with a fun evening at the movies seeing the new and exciting titles that are on the big screen. Don’t forget to thank Mitch Lowe!
