We've changed the default sort option for Theater Showtimes to the "Sort by Release Date" option that was added in May 2014. This option makes it easier to find new releases as they are listed first in the Showtimes display.


One thing that we noticed since May was that having just two groups in this display (New Releases, Older Releases) was a little generic, so we added two more groupings to help make longer movie listings easier to read.

When appropriate, you will now see movies under the heading of "Recent Releases" which includes movies released within three weeks (not counting those that are already grouped under "New Releases").

For those theaters that bring older movies back, there is a heading for "Classic Movies Back on the Big Screen." These movies are those which are 10 or more years old, which also are displayed in the page of the same name in Now Showing.

"Sort by Release Date" is the default option, but you still have the ability to specify "Sort by Name" for an alphabetical listing of the movies as well. The site will remember your selection and use that as the default during your visit.
