I need to scrape a theatre webpage to know whether the bookings for next week has been opened. I am planning to write a scraper if the page has the required HTML element for the next Friday based on the current date.
For example, if the current date is June 4-9, I should scrape the page https://www.spicinemas.in/chennai/show-times/10-06-2016?seats=2
Basically the date in URL will be the next Friday as it is the releasing date.
For specific movies, I like to store the name and its releasing date in DB so that it will take special cases for them.
Which tool would be optimal and take least time? I need to write this for several Movieplex websites and each one has different mechanism to check if the booking has been opened.
Is PhantomJS suitable for this? Please suggest.
