When\u2019s the best time for a quick restroom break during a showing of a big Hollywood summer blockbuster? Generally speaking, it\u2019s any moment when nothing\u2019s being blown up, no one\u2019s being chased or thrown out of a window, and there aren't any CGI effects. That usually equates to, oh, about two minutes out of 120 to make a run for it.\n\tBut there's a mobile application that helps you be more precise about when to step out of the theater without missing the action. It\u2019s one of my three must-have apps for people who still like to watch films on the big screen, especially during the prime summer movie season.\n\tFlixster for iOS, Android\n\tFirst up: Flixster, a free app for iOS (iPhone, iPod touch and iPad) and Android phones and tablets. Flixster is where I usually start figuring out my movie plans. The app combines movie show times, Rotten Tomatoes scores, audience reactions, links to critics\u2019 reviews, trailers, and, in some cases, the ability to buy tickets. You can also see which films are coming up and coming out on DVD, among other things. My only complaint is that lesser known or indie films sometimes don\u2019t show up in the listings; I have to do a keyword search to find them.\n\tFandango for iOS, Android\n\tThe free Fandango app for iOS (small iDevices and iPads) and all Android devices is probably the best one-stop app for buying movie tickets. Something else I really like about Fandango: You can use the apps to filter listings by genre and MPAA rating. For instance, after nearly two months of mind-numbing "tent pole" movies, I\u2019ve been hungry for what I call "tadpole" films\u2014the small-budget independent productions that swim outside the Hollywood mainstream. Fandango\u2019s Art House filter can help you quickly identify these gems. However, the filter failed to list my two favorite indie flicks this summer: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Hollywood to Dollywood. Admittedly, the latter film, a charming, funny and touching documentary about twin brothers who travel cross-country to try and hand-deliver a script they wrote to Dolly Parton, has thus far been making the festival rounds (and won tons of awards) but doesn\u2019t yet have a distribution deal. Even so, through a keyword search, I found Hollywood to Dollywood among Flixster's listings.\n\tRunPee for iOS, Android\n\tThe free RunPee app for all iOS and Android devices is sheer genius, and it's a blessing to bladders everywhere. It identifies the best times for "bio breaks" during currently showing movies in two key ways. You can read about the suggested pit stops in advance of the movie and then just remember when they are. Even better, if you start the app\u2019s timer at the beginning of the film, you\u2019ll get a vibration alert whenever those "make a run for it" breaks occur. RunPee even tells you how long the break should be and what you'll miss while you're gone. The app also lets you know if it\u2019s worth sticking around after the credits and provides an easy way to search Twitter to see what others are saying about the movie. \u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\n\tDo you have a favorite app for going to the movies? If so, let\u2019s hear about it.
