Movie Shortcuts and More
Every holiday season I find myself in a wintry climate cooped up with a bunch of people and not much to do except eat, drink, and be merry. There’s really only so much of this I can take, so invariably we go and catch a movie. The problem is finding something that both my parents and my teenage cousins will enjoy. I’m sure that I’m not the only one with this problem.
To make your search for a movie easier, I’d like to tell you about two movie shortcuts on Yahoo! Search. The first shortcut is the Movie Trailer shortcut. Just by entering a movie name followed by “trailer” or "trailers" you can see trailers and clips for just about any major motion picture.
Try Harry Potter Trailer to see movie trailers and an exclusive clip from our friends at Yahoo! Movies.
After watching the trailer, try the Movie Showtimes shortcut. By entering the title of a movie and a location, (major city, zip, or city+state) you’ll get a listing of the closest theaters showing that movie. For example, Harry Potter Palo Alto CA. With a single search, you’ll get showtimes as well as ratings and maps.
Currently we have over 30 Search Shortcuts to help you find what you’re looking for. Missed the game? Scores are a click away with a search for the team name followed by “scores”. Can’t find an address? Searching for the address will show you the map right away.
As always, please let us know what you think.
