$65M, Series B, Oct. 3

Bio: MoviePass is a company that lets users watch movies at local theaters at a fixed monthly rate.

News: The company raised $65 million in new funding and made the announcement at a recent entertainment media conference. This news comes on the heels of the company’s announcement that it’s limiting services for users. Rather than an unlimited pass, users can enjoy up to three movies per month. Ted Farnsworth, CEO of Helios & Matheson Analytics, which owns MoviePass, says this strategy helps the company control its spending. Other details of the funding were not shared.

$63M, Venture, Oct. 4

Bio: Helios & Matheson Analytics is a company that uses big data technology and advanced analytics to provide enterprises with valuable business insights.

News: The company announced its $63 million funding just one day after MoviePass announced its own. Helios & Matheson was just as vague about the details of this funding as they were about MoviePass’s investment. However, they noted that they are diligently working on strategic partnerships to boost the MoviePass brand. Farnsworth said the public can expect to learn about those updates in just a few weeks.
