What’s Your Movie Source?

When it comes to going to the movies, where do you look first for movie times: the newspaper, the telephone, or the Internet?

I was always a newspaper-first, but now that I don’t subscribe to a newspaper, is my first stop. The only thing missing from Moviefone is ticket price information, something that’s almost always printed in the paper.

The Internet, now. You may have heard of it.

On the start page I use, I linked directly to a Yahoo! Movies page with all local showtimes - so it's pretty effortless. The paper is a second stop, as some local art house theaters aren't always on Yahoo!

I just go to the theatre and find out what's coming up when I get there. The best way, really. Paul, you have a stupid method. The internet????!!!

Am I who I claim to be............NO!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
