Geek Tip: Using Google Search For Movies

Planning a movie date in the near future and wondering what shows are playing nearest you?
Go to Google and type in 'showtimes' followed by your zip code or location. You can also search for a specific film like the one shown here. Example: Shrek The Third 94104. Even if you don't know the full name of the movie, you can use abbreviations or shortcuts to find film info. For instance, movie: Camera Diaz with Mike Meyers, or movie: talking donkey. Enjoy the show!

I just had one of those moments like in that GPS commercial where the guy hits on his Tom Tom or whatever it is. I love you, Google.
