    I'm looking for a movie app that does alerts?

    I would like to:

    1 add a film like "Sinister" and "Possession" and then
    2 get an alert when they are at my local cinema.
    (alert via text email or system message.)

    Does any app do this?

    I use IMDB and Cineworld app

    neither seem to have alerts like outlined above?

    - Ideally a good movie app would have trailers etc etc
    but its the local alerts that I'm after.

    There's a website called IFTTT where you can set up triggers and actions for events on the internet. I love it! Very versatile.

    Here's a preliminary recipe I created that may work for you: Movie recipe
    It looks for a movie title in the RSS feed specified then texts you when it appears. Brilliant!

    I noticed ikent and timeout.com have RSS feeds for specific UK theaters. If you could use an RSS for your specific theater, it would improve your results. If you need help finding a RSS feed for your specific theater just PM me. I'd be happy to help.

    My Cineworld app (the unofficial one) does alerts for new films as they are added to the Cineworld backend. If you are interested in getting alerts just for specific films as they are added could you add a feature request via the app ( menu -> feature requests ). This would help me scope out the demand for the feature.

    I think IMDB has alerts.
