Try it.

Example: My city, my favorite multiplex :)

This has been available on in the US for almost 3 years. I guess its slowly getting added to some of the other localized versions of Google.

Australia just got this feature in Feb. 2008:

Colin is right, it seems to work only for the US, Australia and India.

It works in Canada. Though it asks for a U.S. zip code or city, I was able to enter my Canadian postal code and get results. And I have been able to so for a while.

It works for UK cities too. Or at least it does for Sheffield, UK:

It seems to use the same backend for all countries. Although if you visit the localized domains, you get different labels for the text box:

US: US city or zip

Canada: City or postal code

Australia: Postcode or suburb

India: City

UK: Town or post code

Thank you Bill and Tony, I wasn't aware for these 2 countries.
BTW: this [movies] operator has been completely translated in French since years, but still not available in France ;) [but for French Canadian it might be useful]
