I have had an account on Cinemark's website for a few years now. The old method was simple and great. I added cash to the account in the form of a gift card. Then I purchased tickets at the normal price using the account and the credit available. No online fees. This was better as the cash I added was 100% available and since I go to matinees, and on Tuesdays they have $5 tickets, it worked really well. Simple and efficient.
This new plan, however, is a useless gimmick. Who goes to movies by themselves? And for $11.99 I get Netflix. Really? Pay $8.99 for a single ticket when most of my tickets are below that? And that too for only a 2D ticket. This is really not a discount as in Dallas the ticket price for an evening show is around $6.50. So they are making money on the $8.99. The 20% on concessions is not that great, as I mostly get their coke plus popcorn deal.
Look for other options, or better yet, don't waste money on a membership. Get Hulu, Netflix, and then just buy tickets when you actually go to the theaters. I only go to the theater to see it in IMAX, or 3D, especially movies that would look good on those screens. The rest is all available between Amazon Prime, Netflix or Hulu. And with a large TV at home, it is a much better experience with a cold beer.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
