Finding myself with a few hours to kill this evening, I decided to update my Seattle Movie Finder mashup which provides information on show times for movies currently playing in the Seattle area. The update was to use the new map control that is being used by Windows Live Local instead of the old Virtual Earth map control.

So far there isn't a lot of accurate information out there for working with the new control. The best guide I found was the article Creating Your First Virtual Earth v2 Page, almost every other article or reference document seems to be outdated. As usual Chandu Thota was a fountain of wisdom when it came to getting info about the API as was Chris Pendleton.

Note: This version works in Internet Explorer. I've pinged the Windows Live Local folks to complain about Firefox support so I expect it should be forthcoming since they seemed aware of the problem.

It works in Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Very cool. Where are you pulling your movie theatre listings from? It seems to show a limited list of theatres. For example it showed only 4 theatres showing King Kong in the Seattle area and none were even the "good" theatres.
