We work in an area that has 3 Ster-Kinekor’s, a NuMetro, a CineCentre, and an @movies cinema all within a 7km radius. We love movies and go quite often but every time we wanted to go, we had to open 4 tabs in a web browser to see all of the showtimes at the different cinema chains as well as a tab from metacritic to see reviews and metadata on the films we were interested in. It was a daunting exercise just to decide which cinema to go to and we longed for one site that showed us all of the movie times for all of the cinemas near us based on their proximity to us as well as all of the reviews, trailers, posters and metadata. We wanted to be able to find out where a particular movie was playing around us regardless of which brand of cinema complex.
How cool would it be to click on the latest superhero movie and see all of the cinemas it’s playing at and their showtimes ranked by distance from the location you’re currently at or one you entered and to know in what format it was playing for each movie time ie: 3D, 2D, etc.
All of those desires gave birth to moviez.co.za
Now you can search a location, a movie, a specific cinema complex or just click the showtimes menu item and have the site auto-detect your location and let you see a list of all movies showing at all cinemas (with their showtimes) all within a 15-20km radius to your location.
We hope you enjoy the site and find as useful as we do! Let us know your thoughts and how you’re interacting with the site by reaching out to us through our facebook, instagram, or twitter pages or via contact page. Please spread the word amongst your friends and stay tuned as we work on setting up a process where you can purchase tickets by clicking on a specific movie time from within moviez.co.za
