Integrate "Now Playing Near You!" notifications into Watchlist
I watch tons of trailers, most of them several months in advance of the films' release. I file away the ones I want to see, but it's impossible to keep up with when and where every film hits theaters (if it hits theaters at all). So I would love it if Letterboxd could notify me when the films on my Watchlist are in theaters near me.
Great call. We’re investigating some sources for the data to power something like this, and will let you know how we get on.

Not sure I like this idea. There are TONS of places to find out what's playing in your area. Just seems like more clutter and busy work for LetterBoxd to deal with.
I guess I'm kind of worried about load times, screen clutter and pop-ups. I LOVE the look of this site so far and I'm a huge fan of less is more. This feels like more it less to me. But perhaps it could be integrated in a non-invasive way.
