Google Web Movie Search + SMS Theater Search

Google has created Movie Search Help, enabling users to search for film titles, actors, directors, movie genres, famous lines or plot details - just in time for the Oscars. And a new text messaging service (46645 or GOOGL on most phones) to look up show times for nearby theatres.

“Results also display the movie’s average rating out of five stars and links to reviews, reports DMeurope via Google Weblog.

For users in the US, the addition to Google’s search engine also allows them to find the closest theatre showing a particular film, as well as the show time, by inserting a zip code or city after the ‘movie:’ operator.
