Editors' reviewThis utility makes it a snap to view time schedules for current movies at theaters in your area, but some limitations mar its usefulness. Users may be confused by the download link for Movies, which directs you to the Microsoft Gadgets Web page. The program doesn't download or install to your PC, and is available only online. To find movie times, simply enter your zip code and a list of theaters in your area is displayed. Click on one and you'll see the address and phone number for the theater and a list of currently showing movies with show times. Moreover, you can click on movie titles to view more detailed information about the film, courtesy of Amazon.com. On the downside, Movies offers no means to save search results and you can't add theaters. The program only works for theaters in the United States. Movies is an effective and inexpensive tool for movie buffs who want a quick way to find out what's showing at their local cinemas.
Find movies and showtimes in your area. Click on a theatre and you'll be able to see the movies currently playing at that location. Showtimes, ratings, reviews, even directions to the theatre, all at the tip of your Web browser.
