I typically use Sherlock to browse local movie listings but it hasn't worked in the past couple of days. Specifically, it says "no results found" for anyplace I look up. All the other features of Sherlock work just fine. I researched the issue and already tried deleting the cache and preferences from the library, but it still isn't working. If anyone can help, i'd appreciate it!

I can't remember the day when Sherlock worked for much of anything. Apple has effectively abandoned Sherlock. I believe you can find a Dashboard widget to replace this function.

what dashboard widget do you use for movie times? I really enjoyed using Sherlock for this. Had all the theaters, times, and movie previews you can watch....all in one.

Does this widget you're talking about do the same?

Apple lists several widgets that can find movies by theater and time.

I've tried both the Ticket Widget and RADMovieTimes and both seem to work.

None seem to have quite the functionality of the old Sherlock module in terms of also displaying the film trailer, but you can also download a widget that does only that.
