- We've changed the default sort option for Theater Showtimes to the "Sort by Release Date" option that was added in May 2014. This option makes it easier to find new releases as they are listed first...

- Now that we are carrying showtimes and information for all theaters in the United States, it was high time that we expand our support of theaters in Canada as well. The next step in that process was...
