Without a doubt, one of the most controversial companies of the year is MoviePass. The offer of $9.95/month to see one movie per day started out as something that was seemingly too good to be true, but as time's gone on, that offer's become less and less magical.

Thanks to things like no repeat viewings, being limited to 3 movies per month, and showtimes that completely disappear from the app for no reason at all, you might have had enough with MoviePass and just want out. The company does allow you to cancel your membership at any time, and if you need help doing that, we're here to walk you through what that process looks like.

  1. Open MoviePass and tab on the Account tab.
  2. Tap Account Details at the very top.
  3. Tap Plan & Billing Info.
  4. Tap the red Cancel text near the top-right.

  1. Tap Reason for cancellation and select one of the items in the drop-down menu.
  2. Tap Cancel Subscription at the bottom.
  3. On the pop-up, tap Cancel Membership once again to confirm your decision.

Once you cancel your membership, you won't be able to reactivate your account or start a new subscription for 9 months. In other words, make sure you're absolutely certain you want to give MoviePass the peace sign before moving forward.

Also, your account will remain active until your next billing date. As such, no matter if you're signed up for a monthly or annual plan, you'll be able to keep on using MoviePass like normal until your renewal date.

  • Cancel this jalopy. No one should give this fraud of a company a dime. Took me forever to be able and cancel my account.
  • I cancelled because I got tired of their unethical crap. I won't go back on principal, but say I wanted to now that they've backtracked on what they are doing (which was my reason for cancellation), I have to wait 9 months? Even more reason to let this piece of crap die already.
  • Why even consider MoviePass when Netflix lets you do all the things MoviePass doesn't? I could shorten it to "Netflix does what MoviePass doesn't!!!"
  • My GF bought the yearly pass so she's in it to the end. At least she's seen almost $200 worth of movies so she came out ahead regardless of what ever happens to MoviePass.
  • Everyone ripped this company and now calling it unethical. This is still a value deal. It served well so far. No restriction on theatres is great.
  • I don't live in a major city, so maybe I don't run into some of the frustrations that others have, but $10 a month for 3 movies is still a great deal to me.
