How does the site know where I am?

IMDb uses location services in your app or browser to provide showtimes in your area. Location services must be turned on to use Showtimes.

How can I change my location?

You can update your location by turning off ‘Current Location’. A box will appear where you can manually input the city or zipcode you want to search.

When you change your location to a postal code, we remember the postal code for when you visit the Showtimes page again later. Only the remembered postal code will be a "coarse" postal code, even if you originally entered a "fine" postal code. 

For example, in the US, if you enter a "fine" Zip+4 postal code (98105-3702):
