Creating a calendar to display movie times

Recommended Posts

I'm starting with info like this. This is one movie, but there are about 30 to do. The data comes with the movie title followed by all of the theaters it's playing at and at what times:

The Bucket List *** (1:37/PG-13)

Cinemaworld: 10:30, 12:45, 3, 5:15, 7:30, 9:45.

Island: 12:25, 2:35, 4:45, 7:10, 9:15.

Providence Place: noon, 2:20, 4:40, 7:10, 9:40.

Showcase North Attleboro: 11:40, 2:10, 4:35, 7:15, 9:55.

Showcase Seekonk Route 6: 11:40, 12:10, 2:10, 2:40, 4:40, 5:10, 7:10, 7:40, 9:50, 10:15.

Showcase Warwick: noon, 2:20, 4:40, 7:10, 9:40.

Showcase Warwick Mall: noon, 2:20, 4:40, 7:10, 9:35.

South Kingstown: 1:40, 4:20, 6:45, 9:10.

Stonington: 12:50, 4:10, 7:05, 9:45.

Swansea: 1:25, 4:25, 7:40, 10:20.

  • I would like to delete the "time" field and display the movie times in a text field. How do you delete Time from the standard calendar?
  • Readers will want to search by movie title and by theater. Is that possible?
  • Is anybody using Trumba to display movies, lots of theaters, lots of times? May I see how it displays?

What you can do is create a custom field to enter in the movie times or enter the movie times in the Description field. You would then probably set the Start Time of the event to an All Day Event. Then use the Classic Table calendar view. When you select Edit Settings & Styles, you can hide the Time field. This is a very flexible calendar view as you can also add additional fields and label the different fields with your own custom labels.
