MUBI is raising its prices for subscribers wanting to use its MUBI GO service.
The subscription streaming service has established itself as a key player for arthouse and world cinema in the competitive VOD area. Every day it adds a new film, which is available for 30 days, creating a revolving carousel of hand-picked films, from new directors to
In addition to streaming hidden gems and festival favourites, MUBI has increasingly made moves into the world of cinema, acquiring films for theatrical distribution as well as online streaming and even some physical DVD and Blu-ray releases. Alongside that push, MUBI has begun partnering with cinemas and distributors across the UK to offer subscribers a free cinema ticket every week to a specific film.
Participating distributors include Universal Pictures, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, StudioCanal, Thunderbird, Dogwoof, Altitude, Vertigo, Modern Films, Park Circus and eOne, while exhibitors joining the initiative include Showcase, Vue, Curzon, the Barbican, ICA, Genesis and Rio Cinema in London, Watershed in Bristol, HOME in Manchester, the GFT in Glasgow, the Showroom in Sheffield, Chapter in Cardiff, Broadway in Nottingham, The QFT in Belfast, DCA in Dundee, the Depot in Lewes, The Picturehouse in Uckfield, Eden Court in Inverness and Filmhouse in Edinburgh.
In recent weeks, MUBI GO’s chosen films have included Marriage Story, The Irishman, A Dog Called Money and After the Wedding.
Now, however, subscribers wanting to take advantage of MUBI Go’s offer of a free cinema ticket will have to pay more to do so.
A subscription that includes MUBI Go will now cost £14.99 a month. A normal MUBI subscription, meanwhile, will remain at £9.99 a month.
