MoviePass offers an interesting service: for $19.95 per month, you can see a new movie in theaters every day. If that sounds too good to be true, that's because it's turning out to be. While the idea of a flat rate subscription to see multiple movies in a week is certainly intriguing, the reality of MoviePass is turning out to be a lot more complicated.
For starters, you can only see movies in 2D on standard screens, you can't watch the same movie multiple times in a week, and the subscription price doubled in less than a year. Plus, the company has made a plethora of bad turns along the way, leading to such issues as running out of money and not being able to support its service and exposing more than 50,000 customers' personal information, including debit card numbers. MoviePass, for all it's nobel attempts, is somewhat of a hot mess.
So if you're looking at all this and thinking about canceling your account, here's how you go about doing that.
How to cancel your MoviePass account
- Open the MoviePass app on your iPhone.
- Tap Account.

Just be sure that you want to cancel your subscription when you go to do this. As MoviePass notes, if you cancel your membership plan, you won't be able to reactivate it for nine months.
