Apps | IMDB – excellent app for movie showtimes, reviews & more

One of the best movie apps is from the Internet Movie Database. Among its entertaining functions, like listing an actor’s filmography and movie trivia, IMDB has a very good showtime section. 

The smartphone might be a moviegoer’s best friend. With a phone and an array of apps, showtimes and reviews are never far away. The app is free on both iOS and Android.

On the iPhone version, showtimes are listed prominently upon opening the app. This section is ready with default data, including the movies showing that day at local theaters. The user interface couldn’t be simpler.

IMDB movie app review

The films are split into new releases and “also playing” films, and the showtimes are sortable by movie or by theater.  

As I write this, for example, the app is saying that if I want to see “Skyfall” I have limited options nearby, but in another neighborhood, there’s a midnight showing. But if I want to see “Astérix and Obélix: God Save Britannia,” I can walk to the theater a mile away and choose one of three showings tonight.  By Kit Eaton
