My SInemia Experiment: Month One

I am now one month in to my year long experiment with Sinemia. I wanted some way to track my experience to help determine how beneficial it is at the end of the year. These monthly recaps will help do that and also serve as a good end of year recap reminder.

Having used the three tickets my plan allows for in the month of August I've already discovered that this has the bonus of getting me to go to the movies even more than I normally do. I will be going at least three times a month (if not more). It seems like it might also push me out of my comfort zone to see movies I normally would not see. The slower months for movies may present a challenge finding movies to go see. I've promised myself that I will go at least three times a month and that will eventually mean seeing movies not initially on my radar. 

My first three movies watched were BlacKkKlansman, Crazy Rich Asians, and Searching (which I will watch on Saturday). 

My overall experience has been incredibly positive. I found the app easy to use and the check in process easy to do. I had no technical issues and I was able to get tickets for my favourite theatres. I had heard some stories of app issues but have managed to avoid any of them so far. I am pretty impressed with how painless the entire process is.

If I had to decide whether to extend my subscription right now the answer would be a fairly easy yes. I have saved $34.74 so far after the first month and have had zero issues with any part of the service.

My September allotment because available on the 4th and there is not a whole lot coming to the theatres that month. I will be checking out A Simple Favor because I love both Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. I am curious about White Boy Rick mainly because it has been mentioned as having some potential Oscar buzz. I might use ny last September ticket to get my advance tickets for A Star Is Born as that will be right around the last day to use the September tickets.

Any suggestions for movies to go see in September? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Wow this sounds like a good idea. I really love going to movies but I prefer watching them at home haha. I really want to see Crazy Rich Asians though!

    1. Brittany, Thanks for stopping by! It's such a good deal that I had to jump on it. I love going to the movies and tend to see a lot of Oscar contenders in the fall so I think it'll come in handy. Crazy Rich Asians was SO MUCH FUN! I hope they make the second book into a movie as well.


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
