JSON/XML show listings!

Access cinema details, movie listings, film information, west-end shows, plays and much more with the Shows API.

What is “Shows API”

Shows is a REST-based API that provides simple connectivity to a range of data on things to watch around the globe.

The APIs are still work in progress and I'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions.


Presently no authentication is required to access the APIs but in the future it is envisaged this will be needed and I'll be adding OAuth Authenication to cater for the need.

Calling each of the APIs

The APIs are REST-based and work on a standard HTTP GET protocol. The base URL for each begins for the type of API you require:


The Movies API, for example, is located here: http://showsapi.com/movies/
