I went to the At the Movies Web site the other day and realized how crappy it is. You can see clips of recent episodes (a feature with dubious value, at this point) but other features are sorely lacking. The "blog" has not been updated since September 28--that is almost two months ago. But by far the least useful feature is the "Local Showtimes." I typed in my Oakland zip code and the page barfed back an alphabetical listing of the showtimes in every media market in California.
How do I know this? If you look at the image below (click for a larger version) you will see Oakland near the middle (although there were many other entries that I cut off from the screen shot). You will also see both Eureka and San Diego--about as far away from Oakland you can get and still be in California.
There are also two listings for San Francisco but only one for Oakland. Do I get both SF channels in Oakland? Of course I do, because virtually ALL local channels in Oakland are based in SF.
Thanks, guys. You have taken a perfectly simple feature that is well executed on the site of every national retail store and found a way to make it confusing and awkward.
