New Refined Layout for Movie Pages

Posted on Friday, February 9th, 2007 5:31 PM by Scott Jentsch

Inspiration can come from a variety of places, and the inspiration for a recent (as in a-few-minutes-ago recent) enhancement came during a presentation during the Microsoft Office 2007 Launch Tour last week.

As the presentation started to cover some things that weren't holding my full attention, I came up with an idea to change the layout of the movie pages so that the content could be shown higher on the page, especially the showtimes.

Previously, the showtimes always appeared below the left hand sidebar, no matter how much space was being used to the right of the sidebar. With a few changes to where certain items appeared, like the poster artwork, and the selective removal of information that didn't pertain to the page that was being shown (like MPAA information on the Photo Gallery page, for instance), I was able to settle on a design that accomplished that goal.

Additionally, I think the layout of the page makes more sense now than before. Less floating content, and a little more order to things, which should make for a eye-pleasing and functional layout. For non-VIP members, there is a new ad space as well, but I'm hoping that the new layout makes it as non-intrusive as possible. Advertising in a free publication is a fact of life, but I like to make sure that it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb, too.

Please take a look at the new pages (take a look at "Happy Feet" as an example) and let me know what you think by using the Feedback Form!
