Almost everyone - apart from some cheapskate standouts or those lucky enough to have a next-generation home cinema capability - likes going to the cinema. In the wider scheme of things it is fun, inclusive and compared to many other trips out it does not completely trash the bank account (although the cost of a small plastic bottle of my favourite soda tipple Dr Pepper Zero was ludicrously expensive when I was stupid enough to buy one there). I have never owned Cineworld (CINE) but I have admired its progressive upgrades and solid management of my recent cinema and helped out by some half-decent blockbusters it has built up a solid position here and across various eastern European geographies. Cash generative, paid a dividend, growing market share...no wonder the share tripled between early 2013 and the middle part of this year. The recent share price chart has not been so hot though.
