Have you bought your dad anything for Father’s Day? We already published a guide of cool tech gifts for dad, but if your old man isn’t ready for a remote controlled Bald Eagle, how about free movie tickets for a year? MoviePass has partnered with us to give one of you lucky readers (and your dad) 1 year of free movies. Best of all, we’re not making you write some corny story or anything to get it.
Just enter your email and zip code, and we’ll pick a random winner at the end of the weekend (the cutoff is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 16). If you win, we’ll notify you and get you all set up.
How it works: MoviePass is like Netflix for people who like going to the movie theater. For $360 a year (or $30 a month), you can see a movie every day of the year. To get a better idea of how the whole system works, check out our hands on time with the service. For someone who likes going out to the theater, MoviePass is cool because it works in any movie theater that takes credit cards and with every movie (though no 3D or IMAX movies, yet). Basically, when you get to the movie theater, you check in with the MoviePass Android or iPhone app. After check in, you use a special debit card that MoviePass sends you to pay for your ticket.

*Just a note to anyone wondering: MoviePass may send an occasional deal email to those who sign up, but will not sell your email address or anything nasty like that. You can opt out of any emails they do send.
