Siri can help direct you to the nearest movie theater, even in a strange town, so you don't have to stop and ask for directions.

No matter where you are, you can almost always find one thing, and that's movie theaters. Perhaps you're traveling or on vacation and decide you want to catch a movie. Once you find one you like, you'll probably need to figure out how to get to the theater. Luckily, Siri can, not only help you find a movie, but find the theater it's playing at as well.

  1. Press and hold the Home button or say "Hey, Siri" on your iPhone or iPad to activate Siri.
  2. Say something like "Find movies playing near me."

    Ask Siri what movies are playing nearby

  3. Tap on the name of the movie you're interested in.
  4. Tap on the list of theaters that are playing the movie nearby.
  5. Select a theater.
  6. Tap the Theater name at the top.

    Siri will automatically launch the Maps app.
