I had a bookmark that would show anything in my watchlist that was being shown in the next 3 days. What happened to that page?

Please provide the url so we can see what it looks like. It might be a simple fix. I don't see such an option on the Watchlist page, but there's a very small chance the functionality is still there and can be accessed.

Is it possible you haven't used that link in a year? Major changes to IMDb lists happened 6Dec2017:

Thanks bderoes, yes, the URL would be important here as we cannot recall providing this functionality.  

It's possible a search result may have provided something close to this.  For example, movies on your watchlist playing near you @ https://www.imdb.com/search/title?now_playing=restrict&lists=watchlist  (assuming you have set your location via the form on https://www.imdb.com/showtimes/) or possibly your watchlist sorted by release date @ https://www.imdb.com/user/ur1000000/watchlist?sort=release_date%2Casc&view=detail 

Do either of those look familiar?

This site was active in Nov 2018. Now the "has=ontv-us" portion of the URL doesn't seem to function.

Thanks for clarifying. Yes, this functionality is no longer available, sorry. 

We will convert this over to the "Idea" section such that other users can vote / comment upon it for future consideration.
