India's largest movie theater chain, PVR Cinemas and content curation streaming platform, MUBI have announced a partnership to launch a unique new cinema-going initiative MUBI GO in India. Available from Friday, November 29, the MUBI GO app will unlock certain freebies for MUBI subscribers. As part of a MUBI subscription, members will now receive one complimentary ticket every week to see a film that has been hand-picked by MUBI in any PVR cinema.
This nationwide initiative with PVR Cinemas means that MUBI GO users will be able to redeem tickets for the selected films in any PVR cinema across India, albeit only in its Classic seat category at all of its mainstream auditoriums.
Available to download on iOS and Android from Friday, the MUBI GO app will list PVR schedules for the current ‘Film of the Week’ based on user locations, as well as show the film selection for the upcoming week. Users can then decide to pick their free ticket at their location of choice.
From Friday, MUBI members will find MUBI GO included in their existing subscriptions, and new members can subscribe for an introductory price of Rs 199 for three months. Post that, the regular rate of Rs 499 per month applies.
MUBI is a unique video streaming service that refreshes its content library every day with new films to each of its film channels including, MUBI WORLD, which presents acclaimed international films like Moonlight, and MUBI INDIA, which is fully dedicated to Indian cinema and features cult classics like Kamal Swaroop’s Om Dar-B-Dar to films like Binnu Ka Sapna from Kanu Behl.
While MUBI is available on the web on www.mubi.com, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, PlayStation, and Hisense, LG, Sony and Samsung Smart TVs, the MUBI GO app is available to download on iOS and Android.
