Cineplex Entertainment and Empire Theatres Create New Partnership To Manage the Conversion to Digital Cinema

Cineplex Entertainment and Empire Theatres Limited jointly announce the formation of Canadian Digital Cinema Partnership (“CDCP”) – to plan and implement the deployment of digital projection equipment in the two partner’s theatres. The plan will include procuring equipment, arranging financing and securing digital deployment agreements with studios and other content providers.

Cineplex Entertainment and Empire Theatres Limited have appointed Blackstone Advisory Partners L.P. (“Blackstone”) as their financial and structuring advisor for CDCP. Blackstone will assist CDCP with the evaluation and development of a financing plan to convert its more than 1,600 35mm projectors to digital projection systems. The Bank of Nova Scotia will act as Lead Arranger for CDCP’s financing.

Digital Cinema Implementation Partners, LLC (“DCIP”) has agreed in principle to provide administrative services and system support to CDCP in connection with its digital deployment in Canada. DCIP has itself deployed more than 7,000 digital projection systems to theatres in the United States and Canada during the past year.
CDCP is also pleased to announce that it has entered into long-term digital deployment agreements with three studios including Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Brothers Entertainment for CDCP’s deployment of digital projection systems. CDCP continues its discussions with other major US and Canadian distributors with additional announcements expected soon.


About Digital Cinema Implementation Partners, LLC:
DCIP is a joint venture owned equally by exhibition industry leaders AMC Entertainment Inc., Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and Regal, a subsidiary of Cineworld Group plc. Formed over 10 years ago to facilitate the upgrade from 35mm to digital projection technology, DCIP has overseen the conversion of more than 18,000 screens across the United States, Canada and Latin America, and continues to provide management services and facilitate information flow for its deployment footprint and exhibition and distribution partners. 
  
As part of the monumental transition from film print to digital technology, DCIP developed extensive expertise in managing vast amounts of information throughout its digital network, which led to the creation of Cinergy, a scalable centralized enterprise software suite developed to help exhibitors and distributors better monitor and manage cinema execution, presentation and quality assurance, utilizing information that was not centrally available prior to the industry’s conversion. Additional information regarding DCIP and Cinergy is available at www.dcip.com and www.cinergy.software
