Scrape a web page for specific information and populate a dropdown based on the data

We want to create a dropdown with all of the most recent 4-6 weeks of cinema releases in the UK.

The source of this information is the public site:

[login to view URL]

Looking at the page source, we can see that there are clear patterns which define the date, film name and film studio/distributor.

We want to get at least the last 4 weeks list of film releases.

We're happy with any method, but we've suggested the following as an initial outline of how it might be done.

Get current month and year as $month $year. Find $month-1 $year</h4> in the page.

Find $month $year</h4> in the page

Everything between those two sections will give us at least the last 1 month of data.

Within those sections find:

<div class="schedule-film-name--title">$film_name</div>

<span class="mobile-only distributor">$film_distributor</span>

Populate a php form with a dropdown which includes the release date as a section header in the dropdown:


$film_name : $film_distributor

$film_name : $film_distributor

$film_name : $film_distributor


$film_name : $film_distributor

$film_name : $film_distributor

This is a quick and simple project for a decent php programmer.

The final output will be a php page we can upload to our server and test. The form will just have

"Recent Releases"

And underneath it, a drop-down with date sections (from -1 month to yesterday) and releases in alphabetical order under each date.
