By default, movies are listed by release date in descending order in the RunPee app, so that when you go to the movie theater you should easily be able to find the hot new film you’re looking for. If the movie has been out for a little while, you just need to scroll down a little.
There is an exception for the Featured Movies which is a personally curated group of movies that we manually add to the top of the Movie List. We chose which movies to feature based on their ongoing popularity. For instance, a blockbuster movie might be out for a month, yet many people still go to see it each week. We’ll make this a featured movie so that those users won’t have to scroll down and try to find it buried in the Movie List somewhere.
By default, the Movie List includes movies that have been out for less than three months. Movies older than that are archived.
If you’re having trouble finding a movie, or if it has been archived, then it’s simple to use the Search feature. Just tap on the menu (top-right) and select “search”. You can type in the name, or partial name, of a movie and it will search the entire movie database.
We have been adding movies to the movie database continually since the Spring of 2009. There are a handful of movies older than that which we added just for fun, like: Star Wars, Titanic, Jurassic Park, etc.
