e.g. movies <zipcode> should show a list of screenings at a theater close to <zipcode>
also ramp up movie info -- give cast list, release date, reviews, etc.
Could use RottenTomatoes/TMDb

Sure, I'll give it a go...well Rotten Tomoatoes/TMBD have easily accessible API's. Had a look around for ******** APIs and there doesn't seem to be anything however I found this => http://www.tmsdatadirect.com/docs/movies... and I contacted them to see if I can get access to their API...

Doesn't look like this has been touched in a while, though, the Currently in Theaters plugin is similar and could possibly be expanded on:

To develop that you would have to get the source from http://www.westworldmedia.com/ . According to their facebook page they power IMDB, GOOGLE, MICROSOFT and WOLFRAMALPHA as well and they are present in 50 countries.

I am thinking google caches them AND throws the results, WOLFRAMALPHA takes time but gives you the same results and sometimes takes a long time to give you the same results and asks you to try the pro to get the same job done.

Rotten Tomatoes doesn't give us any information about the movies showing in theaters nearby, and it's not as timely as we'd like it to be. An example is when the InTheaters plugin failed to show "Star Trek Into Darkness" on the day it was released. Other API provider suggestions would be appreciated. :)

How about using Fandango's data. It probably has an API
