Two API’s are required to use this shortcut:

  • Gracenote API is used to look up all of the theater and showtime data. It’s free to register for a key and it allows you to do 50 calls/day, which is plenty in terms of looking up movie showtimes. Unfortunately, their API only searches in the US & Canada.
  • OMDb API is used to populate ratings from IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes. This is also free and you can get a key here.


  • Look up movie showtimes by current location or by zip code.
  • Easily view movie information:
    • IMDb/Rotten Tomatoes Ratings
    • Content Rating
    • Run Time
    • Plot
    • Release Date
    • Cast
    • Movie Poster
  • Detailed vCard menus.
  • Add showtime to your calendar.

A big thanks to Adam Tow. ShowtimeCuts was originally comprised of four separate modules, but after reviewing his App Framework tutorial, I was able to consolidate everything into one shortcut while creating the flexibility to add more features. I highly recommend it.

I plan to fix any existing bugs as well as add additional features. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please let me know.
