Discussion

Moviefone is one of the most popular movie guides on the internet. On the web site, you can watch movie trailers, download pictures of your favorite celebrities, and catch up on all the latest Hollywood gossip.

Unfortunately, Moviefone only provides showtime information for movies in the U.S. and Ontario, Canada. The rest of ya’ll will just have to wait until the company expands.
