Butaca: movie database

What is Butaca?

Butaca is a movie database application for MeeGo Harmattan, the operating system running on the Nokia N9. You can use it to:

  • Get all details about movies and TV shows: release date, overview, cast & crew, trailer...
  • Get all details about a celebrity: birth details, biography, filmography...
  • Check showtimes -when available- for cinemas around you

How does it work?

Butaca uses different data sources to present its content. It gets the information about movies, TV shows and celebrities from The Movie Database, an open movie database where everybody can collaborate. It shows movie showtimes -when available- using results from Google Showtimes.

Bugs & Feedback

I -Simón Pena- develop Butaca on my free time. I am writing it hoping that you enjoy it and find it useful, but there could be bugs or things you would expect to work in a different way. If you find issues or have ideas to improve this application, don't hesitate to create an entry in the bug tracker.


Butaca is free software, licensed under the GPL 3.0 license, which means there are several ways you can contribute to it:

Known Issues

  • Butaca uses mainly qsTrId for translations. As reported in QTBUG-17327, in Qt 4.7.1 lupdate won't extract engineering translations when //% is used. Newer versions work fine.
  • There are a couple of ListModels translated manually using Component.onCompleted, since as reported in QTBUG-11403 and QTBUG-16289, qsTrId cannot be used inside ListElement
