If you like Netflix, Moviepass may be the next thing for you.

The idea behind Moviepass is to allow you to see an unlimited number of new releases at theaters for a flat fee of $50 a month.

The service bypasses the box office by using smartphones rather than paper tickets.

The system is debuting in the Bay Area; 21 theaters are on board.
