Cinedigm Announces Agreement With B&B Theatres for Phase 2 Deployment Program

NATO Cinema Buying Group Exhibitor-Buyer Agreement Continues to Gain Traction With Exhibitors

MORRISTOWN, NJ, Feb 11, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), the global leader in the digital cinema industry, today announced B&B Theatres, a Missouri-based cinema chain, has signed an agreement to deploy 205 digital projection systems as part of Cinedigm's 10,000 screen Phase 2 digital cinema deployment program. B&B is the second of many National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) Cinema Buying Group (CBG) members expected to work with Cinedigm using a newly completed form of contract developed for CBG members. The CBG represents more than 600 members that collectively have over 6,000 screens. B&B selected Cinedigm's Exhibitor-Buyer financing plan, which means the exhibitor will purchase its own equipment for 205 screens at 31 locations and Cinedigm will administer and manage the systems under its Virtual Print Fee agreements with all the major studios for up to a ten-year term.
In Phase 2, Cinedigm has created an Exhibitor-Buyer financing option for exhibitors. When exhibitors participate, they select and purchase Cinedigm-certified fully-networked digital cinema systems and Cinedigm manages the reporting, billing and collection of VPFs from movie distributors, receiving a fee for doing so. Cinedigm and the CBG have system supply and service arrangements with Barco, Christie, NEC, and Sonic Equipment Company. B&B has selected Sonic Equipment Company based in Iola, Kansas as the Service Provider for the duration of the Cinedigm agreement.

Bob Bagby, President of B&B Theatres: "As B&B celebrates its 86th year in business, we're thrilled to be transitioning to digital cinema. In our 86 year history, we've seen many technological improvements, including the transition from silent film to sound; black and white film to color; mono sound to surround sound; surround sound to digital sound; and slope seating to stadium seating. We are truly excited to usher in the next technological advance of digital cinema and are committed to converting our circuit over the next two years. The digital transitions will ensure that we will continue to bring the best quality movies to our audiences and enable us to develop a wider array of alternative content options. We've been using Preflix, UniqueScreen Media, a Cinedigm Company's, cinema advertising solution for 10 years and are excited about extending our relationship using the CBG Phase 2 contracts."

"B&B joins R/C Theatres as the second chain to contract with Cinedigm using the CBG Exhibitor-Buyer agreement. We're excited to be moving forward with them and look forward to doing so with the many other CBG members in our pipeline," said Bud Mayo, Chairman and CEO of Cinedigm.

Chuck Goldwater, President of Cinedigm's Media Services Group, said, "Cinedigm is proud to expand our relationship with B&B beyond our Preflix advertising solution. B&B's commitment to digital cinema and to bringing the best quality programming including alternative content options to their audiences is evident. Cinedigm is proud to be working with them to help fulfill this commitment and looks forward to working with the many other CBG members who are excited to move forward with our Phase 2 program."

Cinedigm provides the industry-leading deployment program for Digital Cinema that facilitates the funding, installation support and administration for the company's studio-supported Digital Cinema rollout plans. In April 2008, the CBG, a buying program of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) for small and independent theatre operators, announced the selection of Cinedigm as the digital cinema integrator of choice for the CBG's 600+ members in the United States and Canada.

To date, Cinedigm has contracted for and completed the rollout of more than 4,500 systems in forty-one states with exhibitors including Atlas Theatres, Allen Theatres, Carmike Cinemas, Celebration! Cinema, Cinema West, Cinetopia, Dickinson Theatres, Emagine, Galaxy Cinema, Georgia Theatre Company, Great Escape Theatres, Marquee Cinemas, Krikorian Premiere Theatres, MJR Theatres, Neighborhood Cinema Group, Premiere Cinema Corp., Rave Motion Picture Theatres, R/C Theatres, Showplace Cinemas, UltraStar, and Cinedigm's own Pavilion Digital Showcase Theatre.

Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. Announces Fiscal Year 2010 Third Quarter Results

Commitment for $100 Million Credit Facility Creates Platform for Growth: Phase 2 Gains Momentum

MORRISTOWN, NJ, Feb 11, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. ("Cinedigm" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CIDM) reported a 9.5% sequential quarterly increase in revenues to $21.8 million in its seasonally strong fiscal 2010 third quarter ending December 31, 2009. Revenues declined 4% versus the year-ago period. The Company posted Adjusted EBITDA(1) (defined below) of $11.0 million, sequentially increasing 13.8% from $9.7 million in the second quarter. Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter was flat versus the year-ago period Adjusted EBITDA. The net loss in the third quarter of $6.4 million or $0.23 per share includes various non-cash items aggregating to $8.6 million or $0.30 per share, compared to similar items of $22.3 million or $0.81 per share in the year-ago period. The Company ended the fiscal 2010 third quarter with $12.1 million of unrestricted cash (excluding $16.4 million of restricted cash and investments) on its balance sheet.
THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

-- Revenues for the fiscal year 2010 third quarter were $21.8 million
compared to $22.7 million in the year-ago period. The decrease was
primarily due to the November 2008 originally contracted 16% step-down
in Virtual Print Fee (VPF) rates charged to the major movie studios via
long term contracts and lower advertising revenues. Partially
offsetting these declines were Phase 2-related digital cinema services
fees and a 12% increase in Content and Entertainment Segment revenues,
which were driven by content distribution fees.
-- Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter was $11.0 million, an even match
to the year-ago period. The flat Adjusted EBITDA as compared to the
previous year, despite a 4% decline in total revenues and a decline in
Phase 1 VPF revenues, is primarily the result of positive Adjusted
EBITDA from the Content and Entertainment Group and careful expense
management.
-- Signed commitment letters for a $100 million non-recourse Phase 2
credit facility with GE Capital and Societe Generale.
-- Signed Virtual Print Fee agreements for Phase 2 with Warner Bros. and
Overture Films bringing the total to eight studios signed on to the
Phase 2 plan.
-- Signed first Exhibitor-Buyer Phase 2 Master License Agreement using
National Association of Theatre Owners ("NATO") - Cinema Buying
Group contract.

Bud Mayo, Chief Executive Officer of Cinedigm, stated, "The third quarter saw Cinedigm take advantage of its strengthened balance sheet. At the end of October, we signed commitment letters for a $100 million non-recourse Phase 2 credit facility with GE Capital and Societe Generale. The support of two key Phase 1 lenders clearly shows that the credit market challenges for Cinedigm are abating, and we are pushing ahead to create value for investors. As we finalize consents and amendments to our Phase 2 studio contracts and as we continue to sign Phase 2 exhibitor agreements, we are targeting a spring closing of this facility. In addition, the runaway success of Avatar has heightened excitement about 3-D cinema and increased the already robust 3-D release pipeline. This has further increased exhibitor demand for digital cinema as well as expanded our alternative content pipeline. We look forward to capitalizing on this enthusiasm in the months ahead."
PHASE 2 UPDATE

Mayo added, "The completion of the NATO Cinema Buying Group Exhibitor-Buyer contract was a hallmark event this quarter and the culmination of more than a year of work. R/C Theatres, with its 68 screens, is the first CBG member to use this contract and we have built a pipeline of 3,500 other screens interested in Phase 2 participation. We also installed screens at our first exhibitor-buyer customers in the quarter and have established a new financing approach for exhibitors to own and deploy digital cinema equipment. Cinedigm signed Phase 2 VPF agreements with Warner Bros. and Overture Films and now has VPF agreements with 8 studios. To date we have installed 237 Phase 2 screens and almost 4,000 screens in total."

CORPORATE UPDATE

Mayo concluded, "While significant work remains ahead, the third quarter was one of great progress. In addition to the Phase 2 accomplishments, our Entertainment Group distributed its second independent film, "OPA!", and launched its 3-D Concert Series with the Dave Matthews Band in 3-D which went to 520 theatres, a record for any alternative event we've distributed. Finally, we are also growing our content delivery business as we added several new trailer delivery customers and laid plans to expand our satellite network with proceeds from our financing."

NEW YORK, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- CBS Sports teams up with the NCAA, LG Electronics USA and Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. to present for the first-time ever the 2010 NCAA Men's Final Four semifinal and national championship games in 3-D.

Fans attending the festivities in Indianapolis also can view the games in 3-D on LG's LCD HDTVs at locations throughout Lucas Oil Stadium and at the NCAA's interactive fan event, Bracket Town refreshed by Coca-Cola Zero.

The games in 3-D on Saturday, April 3 (6:00-11:00 PM, ET) and Monday, April 5 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET) will be a fully-produced CBS Sports event with CBS COLLEGE SPORTS NETWORK announcers Dave Ryan and Steve Lappas calling the action.

Electrifying 3D Concert Experience – Phish 3D to Be Released Nationwide on April 30th
Business Wire
Posted 9:30 AM 03/25/10

Phish 3D, a 3D concert experience, is opening nationwide on Friday, April 30th for an exclusive one week run. The more than two hour movie, presented by Action 3D Productions in association with Network LIVE and Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp., highlights Phish’s Festival 8, a three-day, eight-set, 16-hour concert in the Southern California desert.

In advance of the nationwide roll-out, exclusive preview screenings will be shown in nine cities -- Boston; Burlington, VT; Chicago; Denver; Houston; Los Angeles; New York; Raleigh/Durham, NC; and Washington, D.C. -- on April 20th. In addition to experiencing this special screening, fans in attendance will take home a Phish 3D movie poster. The fully immersive music and visual experience, featuring state-of-the-art 3D technology, gives viewers the sense that they are not only at the event, but on stage with the band that Entertainment Weekly has called “the biggest cult band in America.” Phish 3D features fan favorites, never before seen cover songs, and intimate footage of the band backstage and in rehearsals.

Filmed in October 2009 at the band’s Festival 8, more than 40,000 devoted fans watched as Phish combined two of their most beloved traditions — the multi-day festival and the Halloween album “costume.” The band’s highly anticipated "musical costumes" are concerts involving the performance of an entire album by another artist—in this case, Phish covered the Rolling Stones’ album Exile on Main St. Phish 3D also features songs from the band’s first ever full-length acoustic set, as well as performances taken from the six additional sets.

Tickets for the Tuesday, April 20th screenings will be available for purchase on Friday, March 26 (individual theater on-sale dates may be subject to change). Ticketing information is available at www.phish3dmovie.com or with the following theaters.

MORRISTOWN, NJ and LOS ANGELES, CA, Apr 07, 2010--Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), the global leader in the digital cinema industry, today announced Rave Motion Pictures, a Texas-based cinema chain, has signed an agreement to participate in Cinedigm's Phase 2 digital cinema deployment program. Three hundred fifty-six Rave screens across 20 U.S. states will participate in the Phase 2 program including some that have previously installed digital cinema equipment and 277 that will be converted using Barco Series II projection equipment. All will become Cinedigm Certified(TM) digital cinema theatres using Cinedigm technology solutions.

Tom Stephenson, President of Rave Motion Pictures, said, "Our experience working with Cinedigm over the past few years has been excellent. They provide the technology that makes running our theatres in the digital cinema age successful, and the alternative content programming that helps make our customers recognize Rave as a superior entertainment provider. We're excited to extend our working relationship with them and to bring more entertainment to our new locations across the country."

"Tom Stephenson and the entire management team at Rave have been visionary partners with Cinedigm since joining our Phase 1 digital cinema deployment in 2006. We are thrilled to have them join our Phase 2 deployment with Barco," said Bud Mayo, Chairman and CEO of Cinedigm. "Rave has been ahead of the curve in using digital cinema to change the exhibition model. As more 3D and alternative content becomes available from Cinedigm Entertainment Group and studios, Rave has positioned itself to enjoy all of the incremental benefits."

Chuck Goldwater, President of Cinedigm's Media Services Group, said, "Rave is an ideal exhibition partner. They were an early industry leader with their commitment to digital cinema and their embrace of all the programming benefits that are enabled by the technology. We are proud of our expanding partnership with the Rave team and pleased to be working with the Barco team on this next stage of digital cinema with Rave."

Cinedigm's Digital Cinema division is the industry-leading deployment program for Digital Cinema that facilitates the funding, installation support and administration for the company's studio-supported Digital Cinema rollout plans. All theatres that participate in their Phase 1 and Phase 2 plans become Cinedigm Certified(TM) with Cinedigm's proven technology to provide the very best experience possible along with choices of programming never before available. In April 2008, the CBG, a buying program of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) for small and independent theatre operators, announced the selection of Cinedigm as the digital cinema integrator of choice for the CBG's 600+ members in the United States and Canada.

To date, Cinedigm has contracted for and completed the rollout of nearly 4,000 systems in forty-one states with multiple exhibitors. Its Phase 2 plan for up to an additional 10,000 screens will provide networked, turnkey Digital Cinema systems in conformance with DCI specifications.
