The Movie Listings don't work on Canada.com because the site is using an
nonstandard method of referencing the window object.

At the following URL when I click any of the movie theatre links the page does
not update.

http://www.canada.com/entertainment/movies/searchcity.asp?region=ottawa&detailed=1

Upon inspection of the page source, it appears they are calling the following
method from the onClick attribute of the link tag:

submitForm('AANEH')

The submitForm method is included in the page and does the following:

window.SearchCity.theater.value = theater;

This generates the following error in the JavaScript console:

Error: window.SearchCity has no properties

The page now uses document.SearchCity.theater.value instead.
