Do you have a source that the required information can be pulled from in plaintext or XML?

Yep, that helps. That google page shouldn't be too hard to pull the data out of. I'm not gonna do it, but I'd be willing to lend a hand once in a while if someone else wants to tackle the project. Or if no one has come up with something decent in the next couple months, I'll make one. I'd be willing to bet there more than a few people working (or attempting to anyway...) on this though.

You might want to take a look at Beautiful Soup for parsing the html, but I'm not sure that it would be necessary. You should be able to pull out what you need using only javascript and regular expressions, but TV Tracker uses this successfully:

Moviefone lists the theaters on multiple pages, it seems, and there's so much extra crap on the page it would take longer to process. For what it's worth, google's page is missing two theaters in my town, moviefone is missing one.
