    I guess they ran out of fools to separate their money from.

    Something akin to a firm that sold all-you-can-eat annual passes that were to be accepted at other people's restaurants.

    until they were no longer accepted, that is.

    The most shocking thing in the release is that Moviefone is still around. I thought Google and the smartphone killed it off years ago.

    Maybe the value of product placement can have a really long tail.

    In news that I thought had been news a long long time ago, Moviepass and its owner officially filed for bankruptcy today. Absolutely no one on the planet is shocked at this development.

    ultimately, MoviePassí cash-burning business model proved unsustainable. For full-year 2018, its most recent financial filing, Helios and Matheson reported its net loss more than doubled, to $329.3 million, on revenue of $232.3 million.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    My father in law recently closed his movie theater and had to declare bankruptcy. At one point he said he was at Costco and saw a 65" 4k capable TV for something crazy like $300. Between that and streaming services...

    (Note his theater was unique and faced some other challenges over time).
