Last night was date night. I spent an hour poking around a few movie sites looking for something to see. Of Yahoo!, Fandango and AOL, AOL was the best. This was mostly because AOL’s notion of nearness was wider than the others: once I typed in my zip code, Yahoo! and Fandango overly restricted the list of “theaters near you”. That’s all the difference I need.
One feature I didn’t find was a timeline view of the nearby movies. I’d like to type in my zipcode, pick five potential movies, and get a chronological readout of the movie start times and locations. Seems like it should be easy to do, and very handy when you’re deciding what to see with other people and juggling dinner plans in the mix. Does that exist somewhere on this world wide web?
