Adjusted EBITDA as calculated in the chart above represents net income before income taxes, interest expense, other income, depreciation and amortization, impairment of long-lived assets, loss on sale of assets and other, changes in deferred lease expense, amortization of long-term prepaid rents and share based awards compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in our industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity (as determined in accordance with GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We have included Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it provides management and investors with additional information to measure our performance and liquidity, estimate our value and evaluate our ability to service debt. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA for incentive compensation purposes.

(2)

Non-cash expense included in facility lease expense.

(3)

Non-cash expense included in other theatre operating expenses.

(4)

Non-cash expense included in general and administrative expenses.
