What is The BigScreen Cinema Guide?

The BigScreen Cinema Guide is a web site about movies and movie theaters for movie enthusiasts, published by movie enthusiasts!

Since 1995, The BigScreen Cinema Guide has been providing movie schedules and information for theaters across the United States. In addition to the delivery of showtime information, we provide detailed movie and theater information. From its beginning, the publication has been produced by Scott Jentsch of SVJ Designs LLC in New Berlin, Wisconsin.

How Popular Is Your Site?

The BigScreen Cinema Guide reaches more than one million people monthly, with traffic of more than 3 million page views per month. More than 45,000 people have customized the site to select their favorite theaters and movies, and write movie reviews.

What Information Do You Provide About Movies?

We provide detailed information about movies in our Movies section, including:

  • Movie Name
  • Summary
  • MPAA Rating (with Reasons for Rating)
  • Cast Members
  • Genre
  • Link to Official Website and other related sites
  • Movie Trailers
  • Academy Award® Information
  • Additional Notes About the Movie

Showtimes appear twice, once on each theater's schedule page, and another time on the schedule page for each movie. Along with the showtimes for movies playing at theaters, we also provide the following details:

  • Sound Formats
  • Stadium Seating
  • THX
  • Pass List Suspended
  • Electronic Ticketing (for Participating Theaters)
  • Rear Window / Open Caption / DVS (Descriptive Video Service) Notations

We also provide links to reviews of the movies from movie critics, as well as allowing our readers to give their opinions of the movie with our unique rating scale and commentary section titled "Reader Reviews."

How Accurate Are Your Showtimes?

Our showtime information is provided by the nation's largest distributor of movie showtimes and related movie information and is updated multiple times every weekday, so the accuracy of the data is the best possible.

What About Electronic Ticketing?

We are able to provide links to electronic ticketing services for many theaters. This has become a very popular feature with our readers, and we highly recommend theaters provide this ultimate level of service and convenience to their customers. Theaters that provide electronic ticketing have their showtimes appear as links.
