View Finder: Thinking of heading to the movies? Deux it

Brodie Fogg 18 May 2018 NEWS

Sinemia's cinema subscription adds tickets for two, Jordan Peele announces a new TV series and we launch the View Finder Streaming Podcast.

From the far reaches of Federation space to the pits of Flea Bottom, every week View Finder brings you the latest news and trailers from the world of streaming.

We recently spoke about the GoGoCinema app, a Netflix-esque subscription service where interested parties can buy in for a movie screening of their liking. While we're not quite there yet (especially here in Australia), there are options similar to the US MoviePass like Sinemia that offer subscription plans for moviegoers. Now, Sinemia is doubling down and offering subscription plans for two.

For $29.99 per month, you and a friend, lover or family member can see three movies per month at any participating cinema. That's a very tempting deal with movie tickets costing up to and over $20 a pop for adults.

Typically, Sinemia's subscription will cost solo moviegoers $6.99 for two standard movies per month (or $9.99 per month for 3D/IMAX), or $14.99 for three movie tickets (including 3D/IMAX) per month.

Realistically, you're not saving anything with Sinemia's new deal. What you're getting is convenience and an incentive to invite a friend. Still, Sinemia's services were news to me before today.

Sinemia is still working at locking down partnerships with local cinemas but in Sydney alone, you will find local favourites like Randwick Ritz, Dendy Newtown and Cremorne's Hayden Orpheum on the list of supported joints.

You will Nazi see Jordan Peele's next production coming

Is there no end to Jordan Peele's genius? The sketch show comedian-cum-Academy Award winner released the mesmerising genre-bending Get Out early last year and has not stopped moving. Not only is Peele working on a Twilight Zone reboot, but he's also announced a new movie Us (details are scarce, but Lupita Nyong'o is leading so I'm 100% in), an HBO series known as Lovecraft Country and now a new Amazon Prime Video series about huntin' Nazis.

Peele's company Monkeypaw Productions will produce The Hunt, a 10-part series about a band of Nazi hunters in 1977's New York. The plot follows the gang of Nazi hunters on a mission to bring down high-ranking officers before their plan to kick off a Fourth Reich in the US comes to fruition.
