Movie Trailers, Tickets, Times, Reviews and More
Movie Theaters and Times
Probably the most useful movie information you can find online is where your movie is playing and at what times. For the most part, movie theaters we probably grew up with, have been changed to major movie complexes with several auditoriums where different movies are played daily. If you're in a small town, you probably won't need to look up what theater your movie is showing at, but those who live in larger cities with more than one theater choice, will want this information. And movie times are important, too. In years past, this information was your daily newspaper, and it still is. It's online too, and all of the online sources have links to take you to your own local theater where you can find out what's playing and at what time.
Keep in mind these are only a few of the sources online for movie data, to get you started.
- Movies.com is your source for reviews of new movies, trailers & clips for upcoming movies and movie times & tickets.
- Yahoo! Movies is your guide to everything about movies online, from upcoming releases, to movies in theaters and movies on DVD. Find trailers and clips, movie news, cast & credits, celebrity photos, movie showtimes & tickets, box office reports, and more.
- Buy movie tickets in advance, find theater showtimes, view trailers, read reviews and more at Fandango.
- Hollywood.com: Your entertainment source for movies, movie times, movie reviews, celebrities, celebrity photos and celebrity news.
You can also purchase your movie tickets in advance through sites such as Fandango, They'll be ready and waiting for you when you arrive at the box office. Don't be too late in arriving, though. Even if your tickets are waiting for you, seating is still "first come, first served." You may not get a very good seat, and if you're with friends, you may not find seats together if it's opening day of a major motion picture.
Movie Trailers and Reviews
Of course, that's what reviews are for--to help you decide if the movie is worth the money. Keep in mind that whether the reviewer likes or dislikes the movie is based solely on his or her tastes; other information given during the review is generally more useful to the potential viewer. Whether an actor's character appeared "wooden," the plot line was lacking--these are some of the things a movie reviewer will cover. Still, if you've seen the trailer and liked it, yet the reviewer gave it less than glowing reviews, ask your friends or take a chance and see it yourself. We've found that some of the most entertaining (to us, anyway) movies were ones that reviewers panned.
"Trailers" are the scenes or previews that you'll see for upcoming movies while you're at the theater, or on TV as advertisements. The above sites also have movie trailers to get you interested in seeing their show. You can even see trailers online, months before the movie is released.
Cast and Crew
For many years people have been fascinated by movie actors and actresses. We're no different now, but instead of reading all about them in movie magazines or other publications, we can now find out all about them on the Internet. The above sites listed will also give you information on the cast of the movies you are interested in. And if you're a technical sort of person, information on the film crew can also be found there.
The Internet has changed many areas of our lives, and one area is in movies and movie information. Movie information, theater information, reviews, the cast members themselves--all can be found online. When you walk into the movie theater, you could be more informed about what you're seeing with all the available information.
Enjoy the show!
