10 Things You Didn’t Know About Sinemia

Movies have always been on demand since time immemorial and companies have revolutionized how we enjoy this entertainment service. In the past, people were limited to the black and white films displayed through projectors, but now we can view them in so many formats. Many business opportunities have arisen with the changing technologies, and online movie ticketing is one of them. Sinemia allows customers to watch movies in whichever format they prefer at a cost. Besides this feature, here are ten things you probably did not know about the company.

1. Sinemia was the first movie subscription firm to offer a wide range of movie formats

Although Sinemia was the first to provide customers with a wide variety of movie formats, it limits the number of movies you can watch in a month to three depending on the plan you choose. For $3.99, you can watch one 2D film in a month while for $14.99, you can view three movies in almost any format, also in a month.

2. It faced a patent infringement lawsuit

In February 2018, Moviepass, another movie subscription company, filed a patent infringement lawsuit. Moviepass alleged that Sinemia has stolen most of its key features and that it has harmed its existing customer relationships while also ruining its ability to get new customers and forge new customer relations.

3. Sinemia has family plans

It provides family plans which sign up multiple persons under one account. However, you can only have six people maximum when getting your tickets and the membership owner is the one who can buy the tickets. Apart from bringing your family along, Sinemia has a plan for two where you can take a friend to watch a movie with you, or accompany your partner for those romantic movies.

4. Sinemia Elite pays for itself in a single theater visit

The Elite plan has two options with one starting at $9.99 for two movies and the other at $14.99 for three movies per month. The Elite plans also enable you to see movies in 3D, Dolby Cinema, 4DX, IMAX, and other premium formats.The price of Sinemia Elite, consequently, pays for itself in one visit to the theater if you can watch a film in one of the premium formats.

5. It offers a membership card

Sinemia issues its members with a physical card which they can get after about two weeks, and through it, members buy their movie tickets. Consequently, keeping track of the card is important since once you lose it, replacing it can take a while due to the failure of getting a representative quickly.

6. It does not include geofencing limitations when buying tickets

Sinemia is different from its competitor, Moviepass, because it does not have geofencing constraints when it comes to getting your ticket. The truth is, you can get your ticket the day of purchase by downloading it online or from your mobile app.

7. Sinemia provides customers the ability to select and buy a ticket within 30 days

Unlike Moviepass which only offers its customers the option of purchasing same-day tickets, Sinemia gives its members the choice of choosing and purchasing their tickets within 30 days. When you decide to go the 30-day way, you have only 2 hours to buy the ticket using your Sinemia card. Movie pass, on the other hand, only has a window of 30 minutes.

8. Sinemia’s subscriptions are annual

Sinemia charges its members the subscription fees annually which may not appeal to most customers. When you sign up, therefore, you are locked in for a year after you pay a subscription fee of $60. Since they are annual subscriptions if you want to cancel your subscription before the year ends, you will not get a prorated subscription fee.

9. Sinemia charges a service fee

Unlike other online ticketing services that pay the convenience fees, Sinemia passes on the cost to the customer. Customers used to pay convenience fees amounting to $1.80 for each ticket which they did not take kindly leading to Sinemia changing to physical debit cards. The cards ensure that you do not have to pay any service fee when you use them at a theater, but if you buy the ticket online, the charges apply.

10. Sinemia launched in Canada quietly

Sinemia did not do much marketing in Canada, yet its response was encouraging according to its founder, Rifat Oguz. He further said that the service was much awaited in Canada where the market is enormous and therefore presented an excellent opportunity for their launch.
