Why aren’t local movie listings printed every day in the StarNews like they are in other newspapers? Why are they in classified instead of near the TV listings where they once were?

Robyn Tomlin

Movie listings are a paid advertisement that is provided and paid for by the local theaters.

For many years, theaters placed an ad with the weekly listings each day of the week. In recent years, however, the companies have cut back and have started only placing these ads on certain days of the week.

Unfortunately, for readers, this can be inconvenient. For those who have Web access, the listings are available every day on StarNewsOnline. Here’s a direct link.
