It’s there, but they’ve hidden it at the bottom and there isn’t a search box by default.  I personally think the new UI is horrible, did they do any usability testing?

This was awful, I always loved imdb for 20 years, but seems like they want us to search in Google instead. This was an enormous disappointment.

I guess I'm deleting IMDB from my favorites list after years of wonderfulness. If I cannot search for TV and Movies, what the hel* good is it? Yep, works on my phone. The whole world runs on cell phones now.

I am a usability specialist working exclusively with apps. This new search UI is horrible. Rule number 1 is that you never put an icon at the bottom of the app (search icon) and then make the user tap again at the TOP of the app in order to enter search text. I can only assume that they wanted to remove the permanent search box to make more room for features like movie ads. But this is not a good solution.

My only thought on all this, the extra time taken for us to discover and click in the search box, makes us look at the ads just that much longer, when we don't look at them at all, why, cuz we are now being annoyed spending too much time at our original task.
