There are other theaters we sometimes visit that often show different films than the three close to home on my current list. How do I search movies playing at those theaters?

Hi Ann,

On the Showtimes page from your desktop computer, you can select "Change" next to the city/postal code at the top of the page in order to change your search area if your other frequently visited theaters are not listed in the search results for your current location:
 

Enter the postal code for the area you'd like to search:


Then, in the listed theaters, you can select the heart icon to add theaters to your "Favorites" list:


Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

Note: I've included instructions for your desktop computer since this was added to the "IMDb.com" category. If you have further questions about searching for different theaters or adding to your favorite theaters from your mobile browser or IMDb app, please let us know and we'd be happy to offer further help.

Thank you very much for your prompt and efficient reply. I have now created an account on my laptop and entered my favorites. Are the instructions different for my mobile app?

The instructions are overall the same, but the navigation is slightly different of course. Can you confirm whether you have an iOS or Android device, and whether you've downloaded and signed into the IMDb app on your mobile device?
