Sinemia has been encroaching on MoviePass’s territory for months. But now that MoviePass has abandoned its unlimited movie plan, its Turkish rival is adopting a similar model.

Granted, Sinemia‚Äôs new unlimited plan is $30‚ÄĒthree times more expensive than what MoviePass was charging for unlimited. MoviePass‚Äôs $10-plan now only allows users to watch three movies each month.


Under Sinemia’s plan, users can see as many movies as they want, but Imax and 3D films are excluded. The average price of a film is about $9, so the plan would pay for itself for anyone who sees at least three movies a month.

In a public statement, Sinemia CEO Rifat Oguz said the company ‚Äúspent four years testing and fine-tuning our unlimited tickets model and are confident this is the right price to sustainably offer such a plan.‚ÄĚ


The plan will be available in the U.S., UK, Australia, and Canada.

The announcement also said Sinemia‚Äôs plan is a ‚Äúsustainable, reasonable model for seeing movies on an unlimited basis‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒwhich may as well be a jab at MoviePass‚Äôs previous unsustainable model.
