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.
