National CineMedia (NCM), a leading integrated media company reaching U.S.
consumers in movie theaters, online and through mobile technology, has renewed
its affiliate agreements with leading regional theater circuits Georgia
Theatre Company and Goodrich Quality Theaters.

Under the terms of these exclusive long-term renewals, a combined 61 movie
theaters with 587 screens and approximately 16.1 million annual attendees will
continue to be a part of the NCM Cinema Network and present NCM’s FirstLook
pre-feature program, as well as NCM Fathom Events.

“These two, high-quality regional theater circuits have been an important part
of our national advertising and event networks for several years,” said Kurt
Hall, National CineMedia (NCM)'s chairman and chief executive officer. “We
look forward to continuing this long and successful partnership as we bring
their audiences exceptional entertainment through our FirstLook pre-show and
special event programming from our NCM Fathom division.”

“We are excited about renewing our relationship with NCM so that we may
continue to provide our patrons with the best pre-show material available,”
said Bo Chambliss, president, Georgia Theatre Company. “We also look forward
to showing the high-quality live events provided by NCM. The NCM mobile
application, Movie Night Out with CinemaSync, is a very creative tool that
will help drive people to the theater and keep them entertained while they are
waiting for their movie to begin.”

“We are enthusiastic to continue both NCM’s on-screen advertising sales and
audience focused FirstLook program for two compelling reasons,” says Bob
Goodrich, president, Goodrich Quality Theaters. “NCM’s experienced sales
personnel have repeatedly secured national advertisers we couldn’t even
approach on our own. Additionally, the creativity evident in every FirstLook
edition always holds Goodrich moviegoers’ interest.”
