Google doesn't want to you watch 'Aloha'

When you Google the title of a recently released movie, Google is kind enough to gather all the theatre showtime information at the top of the site. It’s one of the easiest ways to find showtimes, and always my go to before I head to the theatre.

Go ahead, try it. It works with every movie, even smaller independent films that are only showing at one or two theatres.

In spite of (and probably because of ) the onslaught of sheer hatred from critics, I simply must see Cameron Crowe’s latest opus “Aloha.” But Google doesn’t want me to.

When you type in “Aloha,” showtimes are simply not listed.

Maybe it’s a fluke, right?

Wrong. Even when you type in “Aloha showtimes NYC” you get nothing.

In case you think “Aloha” is too common a word for Google to recognise it as a title, take Dreamworks’ “Home” into account.

What gives?
