What's Your Question?

How to Find a Movie Theater Near You

If you’re ready for a fun night out at the movies, it all starts with choosing where to go and what to see. From national chains to local movie theaters, there are tons of different choices available. Here are the best ways to find a movie theater near you.

Fandango is the leader in the movie theater ticketing business. So naturally, the website is a great place to go to figure what the current movies are in theaters right now. The theater search is very simple, just enter your city or zip code. It will then populate a list of the theaters nearest to you, including all of the movies playing and their show times.

Local Discount Theaters

If seeing the new theater movie release isn’t as important as going out without breaking the bank, check out your local discount theaters. These can be more difficult to locate, because there’s no national directory of them. However, you can simply do a Google search for them. Typically called “Discount” theaters or “Second-Run” theaters, there’s typically several in most cities. If you’re a beer lover, you may be able to locate theaters that serve restaurant food and drinks rather than the usual theater fare.

In addition to housing one of the most trusted movie ratings online, IMDB offers information on movie theaters and their showtimes. Simply set your location and see a list of available theaters and showtimes. A bonus is that you can easily see the IMDB ratings for different movies, so you can have a good idea of whether something will be to your liking or not before heading out.

IMAX Theaters

IMAX theaters offer a more immersive movie experience than traditional theaters. From bigger screens, better images and realistic audio, some of the best new movies are better viewed in IMAX. It’s the best option for movie connoisseurs that simply want the ultimate experience. To check your local theater’s 3D movie schedule, check the IMAX website and enter your address under the “Find a Theatre” tab.

3D Theaters

Major movie theater chains offer Real3D movies, which are super fun for both adults and kids. Simply wear 3D goggles and enjoy an added dimension to regular flicks. AMC, Cinemark and Regal Cinemas all offer this option, which is available for select films.

The technology is all digital and theaters are typically available in major cities. Just like local discount theaters, there’s not a single comprehensive resource for the 3D theaters. So the best way to find them is on Fandango or Google.

He's All That

He's All That

Addison Rae makes her feature debut in “He’s All That,” a gender-swapped reboot of the 1999 rom-com. Mark Waters, the filmmaker behind “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday,” directs, while R. Lee Fleming, who wrote the original movie, also penned the remake. Also starring Tanner Buchanan, Matthew Lillard, Rachael Leigh Cook, Madison Pettis and Peyton Meyer, the film is set for an Aug. 27 release on Netflix.


Audiences were deeply excited to see Nia DaCosta’s take on the “Candyman” last October, but like many films on this list, it was pushed. We’ve only seen glimpses of the director’s vision including a couple trailers and this haunting, shadow puppet short which she released with these thoughts via her Twitter account : “CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been.”

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who recently won an Emmy for his work on “Watchmen,” stars as the film’s lead and Oscar-winning director Jordan Peele co-wrote the script along with DaCosta and Win Rosenfeld. If you’re looking for something to tide you over until August, we strongly recommend watching DaCosta’s 2018 feature “Little Woods” (written by DaCosta as well) and getting familiar with her work – you’re going to be hearing a lot from her, as she’s already slated to direct the sequel to “Captain Marvel.”

The film is set to premiere on Sept. 3 on Amazon Prime Video.

2021 New Movie Releases: The Full Movie Release Date Schedule

movie theater new movies 2021

It seems that Hollywood is going to be very busy with its 2021 movies coming to theaters. With an ungodly amount of comic book movies from Marvel and DC alike to the new Fast and Furious movie, the next calendar year is jam-packed with some of the most anticipated releases to ever be announced. That is due, in part, to the fact that many of these films were originally scheduled for a sooner release, or should have been out months ago.

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic led to a great deal of rescheduling and reevaluating primary methods of distribution , with some studios taking the straight-to-streaming route. The ones who chose to uphold the tradition of going to the theater either postponed a release to later in the year, or went as far as pushing it right into the 2021 calendar, which is why you may recognize some of the titles below as films you hoped to see in 2020.

The following is a one-stop location for all the movies to look forward to in 2021 and when to expect them. Of course, as we all should be used to by now, dates are subject to change, so be sure check back for shifts in the schedule. Enjoy!

2021 Movie Release Dates: Here's What's Coming to Theaters This Year

Release dates are subject to change.

It's not unusual for movie release dates to jump around the calendar, but we've witnessed a unique set of circumstances caused by COVID-19. A lot of movies finally arriving in 2021 were due out in 2020, and while a vaccine is already starting to roll out across the globe, studios don't know when people will feel comfortable returning to theaters.

With that in mind, we have a list of release dates that are highly subject to change, especially in the early part of 2021. We've also noted where a theatrical release is day-and-date with a streaming release as will be the case with all Warner Bros. movies in 2021 when they simultaneously release on HBO Max.

We'll be sure to keep this calendar updated with the latest info as we get it.
