Finding a good movie to watch is always the perfect beginning to a good weekend. But how many times have you actually capitalized on this head-on start? Well, that’s a question that’d compel many of you to lift your eyes high up in the sky when you can finally come to a conclusion that you don’t remember. It doesn’t signify at all that good movies are obsolete or the stories of valour are no more exciting the new directors. But it does prove a point that you’re missing somewhere. You’re missing the fun, the excitement, the intense world that belongs to those seats inside a theatre hall and all of that because you’re sitting in the dark. You’re sitting inside a closed room with an unlocked door but you never care to open it because you’re too lazy to do it. But what if somebody else does that for you?


I’m not talking about your personal squire to do the honours but it’s the latest iOS app called Showtimes, Trailers, Video Movie Reviews by Marquee that’s making all the noise. The app has been developed by Impekable. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


As the name says it all, this app is your one-in-all solution whether you want to watch the trailers of upcoming movies, take a dig into the movie reviews by YouTube critics or if you want to grab a tub of popcorns and chill out with your friends in the Theatre. It’s all there and that too very well laid out on your 5-inch screen. There are different sections like “Now Playing” and “Upcoming” movies and you just have to select a title out of the long list and check out its brand new trailer. If you’re convinced out of its cast and visuals, go check out the show timings right on the app. But if you need some more decisive points in your favour, you can check out YouTube video reviews of the latest released movies which will help you get a better value for your hard-earned money.

Nowadays, new actors are being given pivotal roles and every day or two you discover a new leading pair with a spectacular chemistry on-screen. So don’t miss a movie just because of its new cast. Check out more about the young players and who knows, they might be your new favourite!


All the features seem to have been condensed into the app very thoroughly and beautiful. With an elegant interface and seamless navigation, this app is a must check out. But yes, there’s one missing feature that I’d like to be included here and it’s the possibility to book the movies directly from the app. Right now, it’s not available there but I’m sure the developers must be working on that as well!

The app is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: elegant interface; video movie reviews by YouTube critics; latest trailers; actors’ bio; watch show timings; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
