MoviePass is returning in time for the fall.

The movie subscription service MoviePass, which had a brief but impressive surge in new customers in 2018, is making a comeback.

MoviePass currently claims on its website that a “beta” launch will occur “on or around” Labor Day weekend. The launch will include three pricing tiers with “usually” $10, $20, and $30 prices; each level will receive a specified number of movie credits each month.

According to the website, the new service “will cover all major theaters that accept major credit cards in the US” in terms of participating movie theater chains. A spokesman for MoviePass declined to comment other than to cite a Business Insider story published Monday which claims that the business has agreements with 25% of cinemas in the United States.

According to the MoviePass website, the service will be introduced in phases depending on local interest and agreements with exhibition partners.

A queue will be available for five days starting on Thursday for those who want to sign up in the interim. Every person who signs up during the wait-list time will receive 10 friend invitations. Once the window closes, the service will only be available through invitation.

Although MoviePass was founded in 2011, it didn’t become well known until four years later, when its $6.95 per month for nearly unlimited movie streaming attracted up to 3 million paying customers to its website.
