Movie Times (PHP)
I've been making php pages for my website, and this may fall more under general programming, but is there a way for me to reference movie times so that I can create my own dynamic movie times page?

I didn't know if there was an official way to do that. I didn't know if possibly theaters put up some sort of xml file for just such a reference. I figure the more pages referencing them the better, so I assumed it can't be that hard.

Any help would be great.

it doesn't look like they( cinemark.com ) have any xml or rss feeds for you to pull, which means that you will have to create a database and a basic spider to crawl their webpages and gather the data to put in your database.

I don't think, theaters provide any such XML files, and I doubt any theater provides APIs for accessing there timings. You can parse the HTML of the schedule page to get what you want or go manual!

All times are GMT +5.5. The time now is 20:44.
