Just to make it more apparent what the difference is between this and the new movies, movies, movies forum. Someone had already asked, and a clearer name might prevent newbies from posting in the wrong forum.

Yeah I think "Now Playing" would work best. Actually isn't that what it used to be called. I know it was something different that "At The Movies" but I can't recall for sure what it was.

Personally, I think At the Movies should be enough indication that it's for current and future releases.

I think it's enough. I like the name "At The Movies"! Plus on the main forum page it says:

Discuss Movies Now Playing & Coming Soon to Theaters.

Yeah, good call Josh.

"At the Theatre" or "Now Screening" I reckon.

Given the quality of recent films, I prefer "Hollywood's Crap of the Week."

It should be good enough, but we draw in some pretty stupid people. Two people already asked in the new forum what the difference was between it and At The Movies so it's apparently not that obvious to everyone. Plus no one reads those descriptions, most people just use the drop down menu's to navigate.

I vote for At The Theaters, makes it a little more explicit.

Nah, those posts would fit nicely in the international forum.

I thought about those idiots, but they wouldn't know what should go in that forum even if Geoff named it the "Only Post in this Forum about Movies Currently in Theatres or Soon to be in Theatres" forum, so we shouldn't have to pander to the low-IQ members of DVDTalk.

I think "At the Movies" is explicit enough.

What about a movie that has just been announced and isn't in production yet? Technically it's an upcoming movie/coming soon, but people are posting the press releases in the movies, movies, movies forum. For example, a thread was started in the movies, movies, movies forum about the new Bond girl being Whitney Houston, then I noticed Blake started a thread in the At the Movies forum stating the same thing. He later closed his thread though. There is also a thread about a prequel to Pulp Fiction/Reservoir Dogs in the movies, movies, movies forum.

Can someone explain which forum a press release for an upcoming movie should be posted in?

They should go in At The Movies. Movies, Movies, Movies, is only for movies that are out of theaters already. Any info on currently playing or upcoming movies should go in At The Movies. The mods need to move the upcoming movie threads from Movies, Movies, Movies.

Doesn't seem like there's enough critical mass here to change the name....

Maybe I'm wrong...

There has been a problem with people posting threads about upcoming theatrical releases in Movies, Movies, Movies, and today there was another thread titled something like "Whats the difference between Movies, Movies, Movies, and At the Movies" I really think renaming at the movies would allieviate this somewhat. Rather than previous suggestions, maybe we could use something like Current and Upcoming Theatrical Releases? It might reduce the confusion, and the threads in the wrong forum, which would help DVDer as she has to deal with Movies, Movies, Movies by herself for a while.

I think at the Movies should be renamed maybe something along the lines of "Now Playing" and focus on new and future releases. Movies, Movies, Movies seems alright as it is named currently.

Maybe an announcement of some sort at the top of each board with a description would help to better clarify the situation.
