The movie search is very useful when you have to find film shows or their timings in your city. The results include movie names, theaters in which it is playing, timing of shows and the movie ratings. You can even find show timings for 2 days in advance.
If you click on the Theaters from left hand sidebar, you can find all the theaters in the city and even maps showing where they are located. However, this information is not always accurate.
On clicking Movies from left hand sidebar, you can find all movies playing. And a new section of genres opens in right sidebar, from where you can filter your search.
