In an effort to cut costs, theater chains are trying to get consumers to go to their Internet sites or third-party sites (Fandango, Moviefone or Flixster) rather than the typical newspaper to find show times and at which theaters.

The top two U.S. chains, Regal Entertainment Group and AMC Entertainment Inc., have already started to reduce or eliminate the small-type listings in newspapers.

These "third-party" sites will offer those listings for free and make money from the fees they charge for selling advance tickets to movies.
