I felt quite comfortable (if I wanted to go and see a movie) just looking up my local theaters and seeing what they were showing.
But then my son suggested this app, and since the price was right (it’s FREE), I downloaded it at once.
And I must say … I’m delighted.
I don’t go to the movies very often, so I’m not “up to date” on what’s playing, or what’s hot, or what’s the next big thing. I really don’t know much.
But, when I DO want to see a movie, this app gives me everything I need, all in one place. Very very handy.
It shows me the theaters closest to me, and names the movies playing there. It shows the times, as well. It let’s me know all the showtimes for the coming week.
You can tap any movie and watch a trailer.
You can look at a list of the movies coming out next week, and the week after and the week after that.
You can read reviews of the movies, check ratings, learn about the actors and even find movies newly released on DVD.
Tapping on a movie shows you a screen like this. Scroll down the movie page for more information. Ratings by critics and ordinary folks are all included.
Looking ahead to see what movies are playing next week or the week after is as easy as a tap. Then you are presented with a screen like the one below. Movie list on the side, just tap any to get further information.
Very very handy to have all the information you need in one place. Flixster is free in the iTunes store. It is also available for Android, and Kindle Fire users can find this in the Amazon App store (also free).
