Web site to show what trailers are being presented before movies?

I've seen some people post this info on some threads. Is there any website out there that lists the trailers being shown before the movies? I googled but didn't find any site that does that.

Thanks in advance.

box office mojo has a thread on their forums for 'crowd' report, and these reports generally include the trailers.

Excluding occasional exceptions, trailers are totally up to the projectionist/manager/theater chain. Distributors ship out the reels and it's up to the projectionist to attach the trailers - and then cut/return them when they're done.

Sometimes, a '1st reel' will arrive with a trailer already spliced on it (the film itself is normally from the same distributor).

Yeah, I don't think the OPs request is possible.

I've seen the same film two times in a row, or the same time two days in a row, and the trailers are always random.

Go to film-tech.com and check the "Feature info and trailer attachments"- it'll say what trailer is attached to the movie and what if any are sent loose. I don't know how trailers are handled with digital projection, but when I worked with 35mm there was usually a trailer printed on reel 1 right before the movie (theaters that show 'policy' trailers would cut into that to put those in) and by the mid-90s most new movies came with various trailers loose in the film can, some from other studios.

When I started out we could usually put whatever trailers we wanted on movies, but it seems lately most theaters get memos from someone at the home office telling them which ones to show. When they get more than one print of the same movie, they'll specify different trailers for each print.
