finding movie theatres and showtimes in NYC

Is there an easy-to-use site that lists all movies, theatres and showtimes in NYC. Please, God, PLEASE don't say citysearch!

I get so frustrated trying to figure out when and where movies are showing, I'm tempted to give up movie-going altogether.
I generally know exactly what movie I want to see. I just need to know where and when it's playing in Manhattan. I'd like to know all theatres that are playing it, because if it's a theatre that's far from me, I'll sometimes choose to go there and sometimes not, depending on how badly I want to see the film.
Citysearch sucks. It's user-unfriendly and has tons of misinformation. I just searched for "28 Weeks Later," (a pretty major release), and the site claimed that it was only playing in Brooklyn, Hawthorne, and Secaucus New Jersey. I KNOW that's not true.
I have better luck with Fandango.com, but it only lists movies that it sells tickets for.
Best case scenario, I'd like a site that lists showtimes for ALL movies playing in Manhattan: small indy films and big Hollywood flicks. But I'll settle for checking two or three sites if necessary. I just want easy access to accurate info.
Bonus points for a site that tells me whether or not a theatre has stadium seating.
