Cineworld hoping for Potter revival

Cineworld, the UK's largest cinema operator, posted a drop in profits but admitted a Harry Potter-inspired turnaround was already under way.

Prior to the launch of the final installment of the series, half-year revenues rose 1% to £163.6m as fewer blockbuster and 3D releases hurt profits, which fell from £11.8m to £6.9m.
