MoviePass parent’s CEO discusses the service’s rocky year

In the space of a few months, MoviePass went from being the hottest startup on the block to a cautionary tale about growing too big, too fast. By the time the summer of MoviePass came to an end, the company that was going to permanently disrupt the box office was hemorrhaging money. It changed its subscription plans repeatedly, while a service outage found its parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics, asking creditors for a $5 million loan. The company’s past year is littered with tales ...

MoviePass parent’s CEO says its rebooted subscription service is already profitable

Two days after MoviePass announced the return of the company’s unlimited ticket plan, Ted Farnsworth, CEO of its parent company Helios and Matheson Analytics, sat down with TechCrunch to offer insight into the state of the beleaguered service. According to the executive, MoviePass Uncapped is already seeing positive results. While he didn’t share concrete numbers, he says that subscribers have increased “well over 800 percent in the last few days. And that’s conservative.” Asked what it would...

MoviePass Goes Back to Their Movie-Per-Day Plan, Refuses to Die

Somehow MoviePass is still a thing that exists. After a long history of constantly changing subscription plans and the rules users had to follow in order to be able to use it, not to mention the significant loss of money and severe hits to their reputation, you would think MoviePass would be dead. Instead, the service is going back to its roots by bringing back their movie-per-day subscription plan. But of course, since this is MoviePass we’re talking about, there’s a catch. Deadline is repor...

MoviePass brings back its unlimited movie plan, with a limited time price of $9.95

MoviePass is bringing back a version of the plan that made it so popular in the first place — a subscription where you pay a monthly fee and get an unlimited number of 2D movie tickets. MoviePass Uncapped will have a regular price of $19.95 per month, but the company is offering cheaper deals for what it says is a limited time. If you’re willing to pay for a full year (via ACH payment), it will cost the same as that original unlimited plan, namely $9.95 per month. If you don’t want to make a ...

The CFO of MoviePass' parent company has resigned, as the executive exodus continues

Helios and Matheson Analytics CFO Stuart Benson has resigned, according to an SEC filing by the company on Friday. The filing said Benson is leaving the company, which is the owner of MoviePass, to "accept another employment opportunity." Business Insider reported Wednesday that MoviePass executive vice president Khalid Itum and three other management-level staff had resigned in the last few weeks.   In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, Helios and Matheson Analyt...

At least three other management-level staff also resigned in the last few weeks.   MoviePass executive vice president Khalid Itum has resigned, and his final day at the company will ...

MoviePass' parent company admits investors can't rely on some of its previous financial statements, and says it underestimated losses

MoviePass' parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics (HMNY), said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday that its previously issued quarterly and year-to-date financial statements were not accurate. The company said the errors related primarily to the "overstatement of subscription revenues" in the third quarter of 2018 for MoviePass. The result was an underestimated net loss for HMNY of $6.6 million, the company estimated.   In a filing with the Security and E...

MoviePass Changing Business Model Yet Again, Will Now Focus On Their Own Films

The folks at MoviePass must have realized it’s been a couple of months since their last questionable decision, so they’ve decided to rectify that with a new announcement. The company is shifting their business model yet again, and will now focus more on its own original films. You know, films like Gotti. MoviePass Films will now “accelerate production of projects for theatrical release, and increase distribution deals for retail, home video, and transactional and international sales.” Per Th...

MoviePass closes up its Los Angeles office after firing its business development team

MoviePass' Los Angeles office closed down last week. The space housed the business development department of the movie-ticket subscription company, which was laid off in February, and the staff of Moviefone. The space wasn't ideal for staff. One source who worked there said the only available power sources were a few extension cords and "repeated requests for pens, post-its, or bottled water were rejected."   Last week, MoviePass’ Los Angeles office at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollyw...

Mapping the Odyssey Isn’t Easy

We’ve looked before at maps of Odysseus’s travels in The Odyssey (as Jason wrote in 2018, “that dude was LOST”). But it turns out — and maybe this shouldn’t be surprising — that it’s not easy to figure out exactly where Odysseus was in the Mediterranean Sea for all that time. Scholars have pored over the text for clues for centuries, argued about their findings, and tried to interpret ambiguous language. We don’t even know for certain where Odysseus’s home island of Ithaca was. Ithaca is o...

MoviePass' parent company has been kicked off the Nasdaq, but claims it 'has no effect on the day-to-day business' (HMNY)

Helios and Matheson Analytics (HMNY), the parent company of MoviePass, has been kicked off the Nasdaq, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday. The company had failed to meet the Nasdaq's listing standards by trading below $1 per share since July.

Let’s Get Nostalgic With A Zenit 11 Review

A Zenit 11 review? Why on Earth are Light Stalking reviewing an obscure, 40-year-old, Soviet film camera? Well, its partly a labour of love and nostalgia, and partly because if you want to dabble in film photography, then there is probably no cheaper option than a Zenit SLR. Built like tanks and ruggedly simple, many of them have stood the test of time. A quick search on eBay will reveal many Zenit’s, EMs, 11s, 12s and various other models. All are pretty similar, most will not set you back more...

MoviePass has been hit with a lawsuit from subscribers alleging it's a 'bait and switch' scheme (HMNY)

Two MoviePass subscribers filed a lawsuit alleging the company engaged in a "deceptive and unfair bait-and-switch scheme." Lawrence Weinberger and his wife Laurie, of Sea Cliff, New York, each subscribed to annual memberships in March 2018, costing them both $105.35, to see "any movie" in "any theater" on "any day," once a day. But the two allege they were only able to see three movies over a 10-month span due to the app constantly saying no movies were available in their area.   On Friday, t...

MoviePass says it's bringing back an unlimited plan next week (HMNY)

MoviePass executive vice president Khalid Itum teased an upcoming announcement of a new unlimited monthly subscription plan to Variety on Thursday. The unlimited plan was a big reason for the struggles of MoviePass last year, leading to the service temporarily being shut down because it ran out of money.   It's hard to figure out which saying fits best for MoviePass these days. Is it, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again?" Or is it, "Those who do not learn history are doomed to repe...

MoviePass executives are making one more last-ditch effort to save the stock from getting delisted (HMNY)

MoviePass parent Helios and Matheson on Friday said it would seek — again — to get shareholder authorization to reverse split its stock. The company is in imminent danger of having its stock delisted from the Nasdaq; the market is hearing the company's appeal of its delisting decision later this month. The proposal is basically the same one that the company withdrew in November in the face of widespread investor opposition. Just as with that plan, the new proposal would give the company room t...

MoviePass Refuses to Die, Introduces Three-Tiered Pricing Structure

If you thought we left MoviePass behind with 2018, you’d be wrong. The embattled ticketing service is not going down without a fight, and its latest battle de jour are new pricing tiers that will entice new and old subscribers back to the app. But the MoviePass three-tiered pricing structure may not be the deal that it promises to be (what’s new?). And in the meanwhile, MoviePass’ parent company Helios and Matheson Analytics further distances itself from the ticketing service (again, what’s new...

Finance assistance app Trim said that, after analyzing 400 million transactions of its users in 2018, 58% of its users with MoviePass subscribers canceled the service last year.

A MoviePass product manager resigned and blasted its leadership in a scathing letter emailed to all staff (HMNY)

On Wednesday, MoviePass product manager Eric Jeng resigned after one year at the company.  In a 704-word letter sent to the entire company, obtained by Business Insider, Jeng called out MoviePass executives for fostering what he sees as "such a perilous work environment for their employees." He also said he was "disappointed" in the company's response to employee allegations of inappropriate conduct. Jeng did not say who the allegations were directed at. Jeng closed by stating team morale at M...

MoviePass could be delisted from the stock market soon. Here's what that could mean for the company and its beleaguered investors (HMNY)

MoviePass's parent company, Helios and Matheson, is in danger of having its stock delisted by the Nasdaq within weeks.  The company has failed to meet a key listing standard — its shares have traded below $1 a share for most of the last seven months.  If Nasdaq delisted the stock, it would trade in the over-the-counter markets. That could lead the stock to fall even farther in value and could make it hard for investors and the company to sell shares. Helios and Matheson could delay the delisti...

MoviePass's parent company is in dire danger of having its stock delisted by the Nasdaq (HMNY)

The Nasdaq warned MoviePass's parent company that it would move to delist its stock as soon as December 28. Shares of Helios and Matheson have traded below $1 a share for nearly the entire time since May, violating Nasdaq's listing standards. The company had until Tuesday to boost its stock price above that threshold, but failed, and the Nasdaq doesn't think it will be able to ever do it. Helios and Matheson plans to appeal the decision, which would delay and possibly avert the delisting. The...

MoviePass' parent company just bought itself more time to live, but it's still in imminent danger of being kicked off the stock exchanges (HMNY)

Helios and Matheson, the parent company of MoviePass, reached an agreement with its creditors Tuesday to reduce its outstanding debt. The move also will eliminate all of its outstanding convertible notes and replace them with non-convertible notes. By eliminating its convertible notes, the company freed itself up to sell potentially billions of new shares of stock. But the move comes on the same day that the Nasdaq could delist Helios and Matheson's stock. The parent company of MoviePass, jus...

After losing 99% of its value, MoviePass' parent company is getting ready to ask shareholders to support its CEO and approve his pay (HMNY)

Helios and Matheson, the parent company of MoviePass, has scheduled another shareholder meeting. Unlike a meeting it cancelled last month, this is its standard, annual gathering of shareholders, where investors will get to vote on its director nominees and what it pays executives. Even those proposals could prove controversial, considering how much the company's stock has declined this year — as much as 99% from the start of the year.

The legendary console Led Zeppelin used to record 'Stairway to Heaven' goes up for sale

Boy, oh boy, if this Helios console could talk, it would have some serious stories to tell. Not only did Led Zeppelin use it to record their now-classic hit "Stairway to Heaven," but many other musical artists have recorded on it too. Now, it will be sold to the highest bidder (it's expected to fetch six-figures) at Bonhams upcoming December 11 auction in London. This mixing desk is particularly unique because it's actually a hybrid of two recording consoles that were combined in 1996 by Elvis...
