Shopping - Ticket Widget

Description: This is the movie widget that you've probably been looking for. It's the one that I couldn't find, so I built it.

Enter your zip code to get a list of nearby movie theaters. Select a theater and you'll see a list of movies and showtimes. Click any of the showtimes to buy tickets and avoid the lines at the theater.

Other features include: Maps of the selected theater, movie ratings, runtimes, and the ability to purchase tickets up to a week in advance.

Version: 1.1
New in v1.1: Version 1.1 is a major rework of the Ticket Widget. Previously, a required server process held up the results, sometimes indefinitely. This update removes the reliance on the server process.

Version 1.0 is no longer functional, so please download this version.

I nearly made this widget myself until Apple said they're working on a movie times widget for Leopard. I'm glad you've given us something to make the wait easier!

Unfortunately it isn't working for me. Zip code 48170, AMC Livonia 20. All the information comes up correctly except for the movie times, which list "no more showings today". I get the same thing no matter what time of day it is, no matter what day I select.

Installs but doesn't work. I type in zip code and nothing happens. Bit of a show-stopper (pun intended).

The blank widget problem is fixed, though I'm still having the issue I mentioned above. I've checked all my local theatres and I'm still not getting show times for any of them. There are plenty of upcoming show times listed on

It's because Fandango doesn't offer online ticketing for that theater. I'll fix it in the next release so that it shows the times, but they won't be clickable.

Ah, I see! Strange that almost none of the theatres in my area offer online tickets through Fandango. That would be a great improvement though, thank you!
