Build up your hype and anticipation levels

A sharp looking showtime finder is iTunes Movie Trailers. The app mainly allows for you to watch movie trailers of upcoming and released movies, but it does include an "In Theaters" tab. From that tab, you can view showtimes by theater or movie title. You can't purchase tickets from the app, but it's still an efficient and fast loading showtime finder.

Get a Seat for the Show

Now that you know what you want to see in the theater, it's time to beat the box office and get your tickets in advance. These apps will help you pick theaters, movies, and even seats so you can make the most of your night out. They'll even help you skip a line or two.

The spotlight is on
Fandango Movies - Times + Tickets

Fandango Movies - Times + Tickets


Fandango does have some cool features not offered in other apps. You have the option of opening a Fandango account, which allows you to purchase your tickets right from your phone (if available at your theater). You can browse showtimes by movie or theater, rate movies, and even create a wish list of movies that you want to see. Fandango will then notify you when they start playing at a theater near you. Sadly there are small banner ads, even a few pop-ups, and Fandango does load slower than the essential apps.

The app is somewhat similar to the Fandango app minus a few features. You have an option of creating a account which allows you to purchase tickets directly from your phone if your theater allows it. You can also browse showtimes by movie title and theater. When you browse a movie, you are able to watch the trailer, view the poster, write a review, and find some general knowledge about said movie. This does contain banner ads.

Track The Movies You Have Seen

If you catch a lot of flicks either in theaters or at home, be sure to keep track of what you've seen. This will help you avoid those uncanny moments of déjà vu when you unwittingly start rewatching something at 3 in the morning some night. You can also rate your movies and share your opinions with your friends.

Whether you're trying to remember a movie, identify an actor, look up interesting trivia, or get a memorable quotation right, this app is ready to help. It contains all the behind-the-scenes knowledge you require and keep you up to date on the latest trailers, news, and more.

For those who like to look up information on actors, directors, and other entertainment figures

The IMDb app is an entertainment industry reference field guide. The huge database conains information on everyone and everything in Hollywood, including movies, TV, actors, directors, and much more. The app can also serve as a nice TV listings app and even movie showtimes app, so it's like the Swiss Army knife of entertainment apps. The IMDb app lets you buy tickets, watch trailers, read reviews, and get the latest news from Hollywood.

Why we love it

It's one of the most comprehensive entertainment databases out there, and it's super easy to use.

Improve Your Movie-Watching Experience (While Sparing Your Bladder)

Maybe you were running late to the theater, or perhaps it wasn't the best idea to pick up a cup of soda the size of a barrel at the concessions stand. Either way, if you find yourself unable to hold it any longer and having to step out during the screening, this app will stop you from missing any of the good stuff.

Go pee without missing a thing

The timer is running

For those who prefer to skip unnecessary scenes for a bathroom break.

RunPee lets you look ahead in movies and determine a good opportunity to use the restroom without missing anything when you come back. Just find the spot, set a timer, and the app will notify you when it's time for a bathroom break. You can get up and go without disturbing anyone with a bright screen in the darkness.

Why we love it

It's a great way to determine what the right time to use the bathroom is.
