Trying to find showtimes for movies in Chiang Mai was a surprisingly difficult thing to do. So being a web developer, I decided to build an app that would provide everything I would normally look for when trying to decide what to watch.
Thus the app needed to clearly show me the showtimes, as well as the metadata for each movie that I would normally look up afterwards. So it needed to include: the trailer, the Rotten Tomatoes score, reviews, a synopsis, who the actors are, and the runtime.
How Does It Work Exactly?
Everytime you load the page, the list of available movies and their showtimes are scraped from the SF Cinema City booking system. This data is then augmented with movie metadata that is periodically retrieved from The Movie DB, OMDb, and Rotten Tomatoes itself.
The movie listings are sorted by their Rotten Tomoatoes score (highest to lowest/unknown).
I welcome all questions and feedback. The whole purpose of this app was to make it super easy for people to decide what to watch in Chiang Mai. So if you have any suggestions or feedback to support this mission, you can get in touch with me here.
If you are a developer, you can view the source code on GitHub.
