LOS ANGELES & MEXICO CITY -- June 6, 2013

Global 3D technology licensor RealD Inc. (NYSE: RLD) and Cinépolis, the
largest cinema exhibitor in Latin America and fourth largest exhibition
circuit in the world, today announced the signing of an extension to their
July 2008 agreement which names RealD the exclusive global 3D technology
provider for the Cinépolis circuit. The agreement also calls for at least 400
auditoriums across the Cinépolis circuit in Latin America, USA and India to be
equipped with RealD 3D technology within the next twelve months. When combined
with the approximately 800 auditoriums currently equipped with RealD 3D, the
newly signed multiyear, exclusive agreement will see at least 1,200 total
Cinépolis auditoriums enabled with RealD 3D.

“RealD delivers an immediately noticeable brightness advantage over other 3D
technologies and a business model that allows us to cost effectively equip a
wider footprint of our auditoriums with their premium 3D presentation,” said
Miguel Mier Esparza, COO, Cinépolis. “Through this exclusive global
relationship we expect to equip at least 40 percent of our auditoriums with
RealD 3D so we can better accommodate the many 3D titles being released during
the summer and holiday seasons while assuring the best available 3D experience
for our customers.”

“Cinépolis is a fast growing, global circuit that recognizes the performance
advantage of RealD 3D based on our double the brightness of other 3D
technologies,” said Marlene Songin, Vice President, Cinema at RealD. “With
this commitment to equip a large footprint of their auditoriums exclusively
with RealD 3D, Cinépolis will have the flexibility and bandwidth to
accommodate the high moviegoer demand for RealD 3D across their theatre
locations.”

22,700 screens equipped with RealD 3D by approximately 1,000 exhibitors in 68
