CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- March 25, 2014

At CinemaCon 2014, the largest annual gathering of cinema owners and operators
from around the world, Fathom Events announced that it will partner with
Omniverse Vision to capture the musical stage production of “From Here To
Eternity”  from London’s prestigious West End for cinecast to cinemas across
the country. As a production partner, this marks a first-of-its-kind venture
for Fathom Events, who has long been recognized as the leader in alternative
content. Fathom fans will be the first U.S. audience to see “From Here To
Eternity,” presented in hundreds of select movie theaters around the country
through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network later this year, with the Broadway
production slated for 2015.

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with Omniverse Vision to ensure
this beautiful stage production is captured and shared with cinema audiences,”
said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of Fathom Events. “This
international collaboration is yet another milestone for Fathom in bringing
the world’s finest unique cinema entertainment to local communities
nationwide.”

Omniverse Vision CEO, Grant Calton, added, “After four years of partnering
with Fathom Events, it is hugely exciting to embark on our first co-production
deal. After a highly successful six-month West End run, this will be a
fantastic chance for Fathom audiences to see the UK production first, before
it hits Broadway in 2015."

James Jones’ prize-winning novel “From Here To Eternity” is the story of
soldiers stationed in Hawaii in 1941, just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor,
of their women and illicit love affairs played out against the background of
impending war. Published in 1951, it was made into an iconic major motion
picture in 1953 that won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

This new musical version has lyrics by Tim Rice, best known for “Joseph and
the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “Evita,” “Chess”
and “The Lion King.” It opened in London in late 2013 – Rice’s first new
production in 13 years.

“I am delighted that Fathom and Omniverse are collaborating to capture our
ambitious musical version of this magnificent story, as the production and
Stuart Brayson’s score deserve permanent recognition,” Rice said.
