WESTFIELD & SPARTA, N.J. & SOLON, Ohio -- January 17, 2013

Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. (NasdaqCM: DCIN), a fast-growing motion
picture exhibitor dedicated to transforming movie theaters into digital
entertainment centers, together with its joint venture partner, Start Media,
LLC, today announced the addition of two new theater locations – a 16-screen
multiplex in Solon, OH (near Cleveland) and a 3-screen cinema in Sparta, NJ –
through negotiation of direct leases with the landlords who own the theaters.
The Sparta lease began January 1, 2013 and the Solon property agreement
commences February 1, 2013. Both theaters are newly converted to digital and
will be operated by Digiplex under management agreements with subsidiaries of
its recently formed joint venture, Start Media/Digiplex, LLC. In the near
future the Solon property will feature 5 3D-compatible screens and Sparta will
have one.

Digiplex Chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “We are picking up where we left
off in 2012 following the late December completion of our UltraStar
acquisition, in which Digiplex added 74 screens in the Southern California and
Arizona markets. The Solon 16-plex is our first theater in Ohio and the
3-screen facility based in Sparta marks our third New Jersey location. With
the addition of these two properties we will have 18 locations with an
aggregate of 178 screens on the growing Digiplex digital platform. We are
pleased with the Company’s progress and plan to continue our aggressive pace
of expansion as we strive to achieve a goal of managing 100 theaters and 1000
screens in top DMAs across the country.”

Commenting on the Solon theater lease agreement, Davis Development Group Vice
President Paul Yusko stated,“We are delighted that Digiplex, a dynamic and
forward-thinking leader in the theatrical exhibition space, has agreed to
operate our Solon, Ohio multiplex property. As a key anchor tenant on
Enterprise Parkway we are confident that their further improvements to the
theater and their unique focus on showcasing alternative, non-cinematic
programming – from opera to live sports – and successful community outreach
via social media will help drive additional theater attendance as well as
incremental traffic to the area’s surrounding retailers, including several
nearby restaurants and fast food establishments.”
