Widgets

Overview

MovieGlu provides easy-to-use widgets for the more common uses of our data.

Typically, you’ll need an experienced developer to implement our APIs to add movie and movie theater data to your website.

However, to use our widgets, you simply copy and paste a few lines of code into your website, and we take care of the rest.  You can either customise the CSS yourself, or we can do it for you.

Examples of where our widgets are useful:

  • Searching for movie theaters by zip/post code, city, state, theater name
  • Distributors displaying showtimes, one movie at a time
  • Showtimes for individual movie theaters, for example in a shopping mall website
  • Providing details about individual films – synopsis, images, cast, crew.

You can choose to use our standard widgets, or we can build a bespoke solution for you to your exacting needs – please contact us for details.

CSS Options

  • In most cases the widget automatically inherits your website CSS by default

  • You can deploy and manage the CSS on your website, and instruct the widget to use your own styles (we provide documentation).
