Good afternoon from Austin, where I will be on the lookout for any place to watch the Academy Awards tonight. I am sending this out a bit early because of the Oscars, but we’re also using the biggest event of the year in Hollywood as a chance to check in on the health of the movie business.

Before we get started, I want to thank the folks at SABEW, an association for business journalism. They named Screentime the best newsletter at any large publication in the country this week.
