How to cancel your MoviePass account

MoviePass offers an interesting service: for $9.95 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 most recently, that flat $9.95 per month? Well, there's now surge pricing (sorry, "Peak Pricing") that you'll need to pay on top of your subscription for popular movies and showtimes. Add to that the fact that the service recently ran out of money one night and was unable to pay for tickets, and what you've got on your hands is a mess.

So if you're looking at all this and thinking about canceling your account, here's how you go about doing that.
