We need a "video" scope to show local movie times and listings

Bug Description

Currently, Unity can show you videos downloaded to your home folder, or that are available for free on sites like YouTube, or for purchase (from Google, Amazon, etc.). Unity should also show you movie times and listings for movies that aren't yet available for purchase since they are only showing in movie theaters..

A good example this month is the first-of-a-trilogy Hobbit movie in US theaters this week. See the attached screenshot for what Google shows for 'hobbit'. (It also shows movie reviews which would be another good scope idea).

Perhaps named something like unity-scope-videos-nearby (we already have unity-scope-video-remote for the Amazon/Google, etc. results).
