Google just announced some updates to their feature that lets you get movie times for movies playing in theaters near you. This feature isn't exactly new, but they have made some pretty great enhancements that make it even better.

Search for a movie that you want to see right in the familiar Google search box. You will notice that you are shown actual showtimes and ratings for that movie right at the top. That was easy.

I actually prefer going directly to www.google.com/movies though -- it gives me more of a detailed view, showing me all the theaters in my area, and showtimes for all.

If you click on a movie title, Google gives you a new detail page that covers everything -- including synopsis, movie times, rating, reviews, trailer, and photos. Google hasn't displaced IMDb or anything, but it's definitely a great one-stop shop for your movie-going needs.
