Google has improved searching for movies and theaters through your mobile browser by implementing a new interractive "ribbon" at the top of search results. Now, by searching "movies" or a specific theater in your Android's broswer (it works on iOS, too), you'll see the film poster, a quick summary, ratings, and showtimes. Clicking the movie title will give you a detailed summary, cast information, and showtimes at all nearby theaters. While it may not be as good as a dedicated app, it's surely improved from the scrolling that a movie search used to entail. Check out your browser now to give the new method a spin.
