Other Comments: 

I have used this to find local showtimes and view movie trailers. I have never encountered an issue with it using Voice Over. I have not found a way to find audio described showings with this app. However, it does provide the address and phone number of the theater. I usually just use the app to call and find out what may be showing audio described.

Descriptive Video

I was wondering if anyone has used this app to find movies that offer descriptive video? I have heard that more and more theaters are offering DV for the blind, but every theater I searched in NYC and South Florida only lists Close captioning. Also AMC's website claims 108 theaters offer DV but yet I have called around and have yet to find one that does in NYC or South Florida where you would think they would have them. Would love any suggestions Thanks

I've updated this listing to include the most up to date description as well as info for update 5.5.1 As far as audio description goes, try this website: http://ncam.wgbh.org/mopix/
