First of all, we all know how expensive it can be to go to the movies. By the time it’s all said and done, even after a single ticket purchase, and popcorn and soda to help enhance the experience, you walk out paying somewhere in the vicinity of $25. FOR A SINGLE PERSON. Let’s not talk about date prices because they’re darn near double.
Now there are different ways of getting discount tickets besides going to the movies on certain days or during matinee times that the theaters set aside (basically when no one goes). There’s online places like Craigslist, eBay and iOffer but your either bidding and waiting for an auction to end or being cheated by some shyster. There are businesses out there that buy tickets for their employees as an incentive program and some even allow you to buy through them. But these companies are few and far between and if you’re not an employee or know someone who is, then you’re s#!¥ outta luck like the rest of us. There’s also Dealflicks which is free to download but they have limited reach. Their discount theaters are smaller ones and their nearest location to us is over 300 miles away. We here at MoJoBac are providing a solution for this dilemma.
MoJoBac has decided to start our own MOBILE MOVIE CLUB. A movie club with access to the largest theaters such as AMC, Carmike, Cinemark and Regal theaters. What’s a Mobile Movie Club or MMC you ask? It’s a mobile App that smartphone/tablet users can download for a one time fee (preferably $9.99) that makes them a lifetime member with access to discount movie tickets up to 30% off (typically about $3 saved per ticket). And it doesn’t stop there. We will implement combo deals for tickets and concession and hopefully IMAX tickets as well. There will be contest for free tickets and Showtimes, reviews, trailers, photos and more. Not only will you not have to haggle with auctions anymore, but you can purchase anywhere from 1-5 tickets at a time saving you 15 bucks of the back. And you can do this anytime you like or need.
How it works and why we will be able to do this. The big boy box office theaters all offer discount tickets if you buy them in bulk. The majority make you purchase 50 or more and in increments of 10 thereafter. Carmike makes you start with 100 and in increments of 10 after that. We will purchase all the tickets in advance and give only our members access to buy them at those discounted prices.
Now our App is in place and after some restructuring, we are now in the works to obtain the necessary funds to stock inventory. We have launched a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo.com. Crowd funding allows any individual to contribute funds to a project or campaign and in return receive rewards or perks for doing so. For our campaign, we are allowing anyone who contributes $1 or more, to have access to download the MoJoBac XS App for FREE and become a lifetime member. This is because if the campaign is a success, it’s because of individuals like yourself that it is so. We are campaigning for $4,500 and that will allow us to purchase the tickets in bulk from all (4) major theaters (which also cover over 1600 locations). When the campaign ends on June 7th 2014, we will make the purchases and give our contributors the links to download the Apps for Android and Apple mobile products for free. Anyone outside the campaign will have to pay the full download/membership price of $9.99.
Here’s a link to our Indiegogo campaign. Going here and contributing using paypal or credit card (all secure), will get you access to discount movie tickets when we launch in June.
Thank you for reading and for those who contribute and we’ll see you at the movies.
