Starting in January, MoviePass is unveiling a new three-tiered pricing plan.

Currently, all users pay $9.95 to see 3 movies per month from a select list of blockbusters and independent films.

Prices will vary depending on where you live -- subscribers in major cities such as New York And Los Angeles, where ticket prices are the highest, will pay more.

The new tiers are "Select," which lets you see three movies, but not on opening weekends or in IMAX or 3D.

"All Access" has no limits on when you can see a film, and "Red Carpet" includes one IMAX or 3D movie per month.
