Does anyone know where I can find a RSS feed or web service that will return movie listings and theaters for a specified zip code? I have been seaching on the web, but I haven't been able to find anything. I'm sure it must be out there somewhere, so many sites use that functionality.

If I have to, I'm willing to pay for it. But first I need to find it!



If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for that link, that's exactly what I am looking for. Except I would like to know how isnoop queries Google for that data, so I can get the data from Google directly myself.


Does anyone have any ideas?

I see that you can go to Movie Showtimes - Google Search and enter a zipcode to get the data.

But does anyone know if there is a Google web service or anything that will output this information as XML?

I imagine there must be a more intelligent way to get the data other than "scraping" it from the page source.
