CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- January 11, 2013

National CineMedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCMI) (the “Company”), the managing member
and owner of 48.6% of National CineMedia, LLC, announced today that its
Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Gary Ferrera, is leaving
the Company to pursue another opportunity in an industry unrelated to the
business of the Company.

Mr. Ferrera’s resignation will be effective March 1, 2013, subsequent to
filing of the Company’s Form 10-K for its 2012 fiscal year. The Company is
initiating a search for Mr. Ferrera’s replacement immediately and expects to
have a new chief financial officer in place prior to or shortly after Mr
Ferrera’s departure.

Kurt Hall, the Company’s chairman, president and chief executive officer,
said, “Gary has played a key leadership role within the Company since just
prior to our initial public offering in 2007.” Mr. Hall went on to say, “Gary
has created a strong financial team and was instrumental in transitioning our
capital structure to one that will serve our Company very well for many years
to come. On behalf of the Company’s Board of Directors and the management team
and Company staff, we thank Gary for all of his hard work, friendship and many
contributions to the Company, and wish him continued business and personal
success in the future.”

“It has been an honor and a privilege to work with the outstanding team at
NCM,” said Mr. Ferrera. “Though I have decided that now is the time for me to
take on a new challenge, I could not be more confident in the team I leave
behind and the opportunities that lie ahead for NCM.”
