Cinema Bums is a gag-a-day webcomic by Matthew Domville. It updates on Mondays and Thursdays and can be found [[http://www.cinemabums.com/ here]]. It features a comedic look at movies, classic and new, splitting strips evenly between those featuring a regular cast of characters and standalone gag-a-day style jokes.

Characters include:

'''Mindy''': The most prominent character, an [[{{Nerd}} enthusiastic]] [[{{Fanboy}} appreciator]] of many forms of genre entertainment. Typically aware of new films years before general release.

'''Doug''': An guy who [[LowestCommonDenominator loves all movies]] equally. He's thrilled by the moviegoing experience, from the snacks to the previews, and rarely has a bad word to say about flicks he's seen.

'''Del''': A film academic who loves to [[TrueArt interpret and analyze features]]. Demonstrates complete ignorance of contemporary popular movies, but rarely comes off as snobbish.
