The new app has no filter on how far away cinemas showing films 'near' me are. I get many showing times for films in places that are over 50miles away and I will not travel to. Can I limit distance app searches? App used to do this.

When I look at the results on the Android App (version on my Galaxy S7Edge, I get different results depending on whether or not I am looking for a specific movie.

If I select See all showtimes & tickets near you on the Home page, the Showtimes and Tickets page opens with the Movies tab selected. If I select a movie, and then click on Get Showtimes the resulting list begins with the theaters I have flagged as Favorites, followed by all the rest, in what appears to be (at least roughly) in ascending order of distance from me.

If I switch to the Theaters tab on the Showtimes & Tickets page, I get a list broken into Favorites, 0-7 kilometers, 7-12 kilometers, 12-20 kilometers, 20-32 kilometers and 35-48 kilometers.

So it appears as though, while you cannot actually limit the distance, the nearest ones are shown at the top of the lists.
