I was just wondering what multiplex chains have this and which do not. I know AMC has one, but I don't know of any others.

A few months ago I took the challenge of designing a program that automates show time reading over the phone with speed and acuracy using internet-posted show times to update itself. I designed it to use a single toll-free number that would auto-detect your area code and guide you to the nearest theater in a chain and bring you show times for up to a week in advance. It could replace all show time recording in a theater chain as big as 80 theaters. The demo system I set up worked extremely well, but unfortunately the powers that be in my company haven't answered any of my emails in regards to offering them this software. They never even bothered to call the demo number.

So, since they apparently don't want it, who would? I'd hate for the time I spent working on this to go to waist, even if I did enjoy the challenge. And I wouldn't mind making a couple bucks off it either.

If anyone is interested I'd be happy to explain how it works.
And I'd love some advice on how to proceed, if you think I should.
