My family saw Captain Marvel on the weekend. Blockbuster superhero movies torture me, but my son loves them and the cinema is easy, family-friendly entertainment.
There were few seats left and four tickets cost $80. After the popcorn, drinks and parking, the bill was $120. We could have watched another superhero movie at home via Stan or Netflix for under $1.
In spite of never-ending gloom, cinemas are still a great business when the content is right and some cinema-related stocks on the ASX and overseas exchanges offer value.
