There used to be a time back in the late 1980's when the only way that you could get a theater's show listings other than through the news paper was via a disembodied voice on the other side of the telephone dial. This service, which eventually became known as Moviefone, was the go to source for this important information until the internet became more widespread throughout the 1990's.  Ironically enough, it was actually AOL that purchased the company and transitioned it into the web property that we know today.

Further continuing the product's evolution, Moviefone is now available from the comfort of your own iPad.  Thankfully they have expanded beyond simply the audio medium to include written movie related news, trailers, and even the good 'ol fashioned showtimes that we have all come to know and love.  You can snag the software for free in the App Store and embrace your inner film geek.
