Theater stocks Carmike Cinemas (CKEC +2.4%) and Cinemark Holdings (CNK +1%) trade modestly higher after the new James Bond movie brings moviegoers flocking to theaters over the weekend. The bigger picture: The sector is off to a good Q4 with traffic up more than 20% quarter-to-date after Q3 saw a slump of 7% partially tied to the Colorado theater shooting, according to Cinemark CEO Tim Warner (earnings CC transcript).
