"We begin 2009 with record-setting first quarter results," said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex Entertainment. "We achieved our best ever first quarter results in attendance, box office, concession, other and total revenues which resulted in record EBITDA of $29.9 million, 19.2% better than the first quarter of 2008. In addition, distributable cash per unit increased 16.2% to $0.381 versus last year," Jacob said.

"Cineplex continues to perform well during these difficult economic times," said Jacob. "Given the challenges with the current economy, we are happy to provide our guests with an affordable escape. These record results in concession revenue and concession revenue per patron amounts are compelling especially when compared against the same period in the previous year which included more children's films that tend to be more concession-friendly," said Jacob. "We are also pleased to advise that our SCENE program now exceeds 1.6 million members and continues to grow each week."

EBITDA and distributable cash are not measures recognized by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and do not have standardized meanings in accordance with such principles. Therefore, EBITDA and distributable cash may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income, income tax expense, amortization and interest expense net of interest income. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBITDA for non-controlling interests and gains or losses on disposal of theatre assets. Distributable cash is a non-GAAP measure generally used in Canadian open-ended trusts, as an indicator of financial performance and it should not be seen as a measure of liquidity or a substitute for comparable metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash to evaluate performance primarily because of the significant effect certain unusual or non-recurring charges and other items have on EBITDA from period to period. For a detailed reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and from cash used in operating activities to distributable cash, please refer to Cineplex's management's discussion and analysis filed on www.sedar.com.

First Quarter Results

Presentation of Results. Prior to Q1 2009, Cineplex presented and discussed the results of Cineplex Entertainment Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") as the Fund equity accounted for its investment in the Partnership prior to Q2 2007 and, as such, the consolidated financial statements of the Fund did not provide comparative results on a line-byline basis. As a result of the Fund's step acquisitions in the Partnership, there are differences in the valuation bases of certain assets and liabilities between the Fund and the Partnership. These valuation differences give rise to differences in certain non-cash expenses (primarily included in the occupancy category) which result in differences in reported results between the Fund and the Partnership. In its filed Management's Discussion and Analysis, the Fund provides a reconciliation of the Fund and the Partnership reported results. For Q1 2009, the Fund reported Adjusted EBITDA of $29.9 million, an increase of 19.2% over the prior year's amount of $25.1 million. For Q1 2009, the Partnership reported Adjusted EBITDA of $31.1 million an increase of 18.9% over the prior year's amount of $26.2 million.

The results of the Fund for the three months ended March 31, 2009 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2008 are presented below.

Total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2009 increased $21.2 million to $211.0 million. A discussion of the factors affecting the changes in box office, concession and other revenues for the first quarter of 2009 compared to the first quarter of 2008 is provided below.

Box office revenues. The following table highlights the movement in box office revenues, attendance and box office revenues per patron ("BPP") for the quarter (in thousands of dollars, except attendance and per patron data):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Fund reported its highest-ever first quarter box office revenues in 2009 in spite of the general economic downturn. Box office revenues for the quarter were up compared to the prior year, driven by the consistently strong film performance across the first three months of 2009. Paul Blart: Mall Cop outperformed expectations to be Cineplex's top film of the quarter, and Slumdog Millionaire leveraged its eight Oscar wins into strong box office results. He's Just Not That Into You performed well during the Valentine's Day period, and Watchmen catered to the action/adventure crowd. This strong film product led to a 9% increase in attendance, and an 11.5% increase in box office revenues period over period. The Canadian exhibition industry reported a box office increase of 7.2% for the period from January 2, 2009 to April 2, 2009 as compared to the period from December 28, 2007 to March 27, 2008. On a basis consistent with the Fund's calendar reporting period (January 1st to March 31st), it is estimated that Canadian industry box office would show an increase similar to that reported by the Fund.

Box office revenue per patron increased $0.18 from $7.98 in the first quarter of 2008 to $8.16 in the first quarter of 2009 due to the film slate catering to mature audiences. In addition, the success of 3D films such as Coraline, Monsters vs. Aliens, My Bloody Valentine and the Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, as well for IMAX releases such as Watchmen and The Day the Earth Stood Still increased the Fund's overall box office revenue per patron, as these films attract a premium over regular ticket prices. Select ticket price increases implemented in November 2008 also contributed to this increase.

Concession revenues. The following table highlights the movement in concession revenues, attendance and box office revenues per patron for the quarter (in thousands of dollars, except per patron amounts):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Concession revenues First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Concession revenues $ 63,126 $ 56,721 11.3%
Attendance 15,966 14,645 9.0%
Concession revenue per patron $ 3.95 $ 3.87 2.1%

Disposed and closed theatres (797) (216)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2009 as reported $ 63,126 15,966
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Concession revenues increased 11.3% as compared to the prior period, driven by the 9.0% increase in attendance and a $0.08 increase in the average concession revenue per patron, which increased from $3.87 in the first quarter of 2008 to $3.95 in the first quarter of 2009. This increase in per-patron spending occurred despite the quarter lacking a major release targeted at the family demographic, who tend to be higher concession spenders. Selected price increases implemented in the second quarter of 2008 contributed to this increase.

Management believes that concession revenues will continue to be dependent on overall theatre attendance and that the current economic conditions will not have a material impact on concession revenues.

Other revenues. The following table highlights the movement in media, games and other revenues for the quarter (in thousands of dollars):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Other revenues First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Media $ 10,622 $ 10,374 2.4%
Games 1,168 1,367 -14.6%
Other 5,828 4,556 27.9%
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total $ 17,618 $ 16,297 8.1%
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


During the first quarter of 2009, media revenue increased $0.2 million to $10.6 million. This $0.2 million increase was comprised of a $2.2 million increase in non-cash barter revenue offset by a $2.0 million reduction in cash-settled media revenue. Rather than settling cash-based transactions, during 2008 the Fund entered into a number of cross-promotional non-cash barter agreements with certain promotional partners to provide radio and television promotions to the Fund's business initiatives. During the first quarter of 2009 the Fund recognized $2.2 million in media revenue and an additional $1.7 million in marketing costs related to these transactions.

Games revenues were down period over period, primarily due to the film slate featuring strong performances from award-nominated films such as Slumdog Millionaire, Gran Torino, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which tend to appeal to customers who are not frequent game players.

Other revenues were up primarily due to higher breakage revenues associated with increased sales of gift cards and corporate coupons.

Film cost. The following table highlights the movement in film cost and film cost as a percentage of box office revenue ("film cost percentage") for the quarter (in thousands of dollars, except film cost percentage):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Film cost First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Film cost $ 65,940 $ 58,932 11.9%
Film cost percentage 50.6% 50.4% 0.4%

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Film cost varies primarily with box office revenue. The quarterly increase was driven by the 11.5% increase in box office revenues. Film cost percentage was up marginally as compared to the prior year, due to the mix of film product during the quarter resulting in a slightly higher film cost percentage.

Cost of concessions. The following table highlights the movement in concession cost and concession cost as a percentage of concession revenues ("concession cost percentage") for the quarter (in thousands of dollars, except concession cost percentage):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cost of concessions First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Concession cost $ 12,924 $ 11,653 10.9%
Concession cost percentage 20.5% 20.5% 0.0%

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cost of concessions varies primarily with theatre attendance as well as the quantity and mix of concession offerings sold. The increase in concession cost period over period was due to the 11.5% increase in attendance. Concession cost percentage remained constant at 20.5% for both the first quarters of 2008 and 2009, in spite of the continued growth of the SCENE loyalty program and the associated 10% discount on concession products. This 10% discount accounted for a 0.2% increase in the concession cost percentage during the first quarter of 2009 as compared to the prior year period.

Occupancy expense. The following table highlights the movement in occupancy expenses for the quarter, including non-recurring one-time benefits of lease-related amounts recognized during the period (in thousands of dollars):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Occupancy expense First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Occupancy expenses excluding one-time
benefits $ 40,376 $ 40,226 0.4%
One-time benefits (226) (879) -74.3%
-----------------------------------
Occupancy expenses $ 40,150 $ 39,347 2.0%
-----------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The $0.8 million increase in occupancy expenses was primarily due to lower one-time benefits of lease-related amounts recognized in 2009 as compared to the prior period ($0.7 million) and the incremental costs associated with new and acquired theatres ($1.1 million), offset by the impact of disposed and closed theatres ($0.5 million) and lower real estate taxes and rent expenses ($0.5 million).

Other operating expenses. The following table highlights the movement in other operating expenses during the quarter (expressed in thousands of dollars):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Occupancy expense First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other operating expenses $ 50,721 $ 45,252 12.1%

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Other operating expenses increased $5.5 million due to the incremental impact of new and acquired theatres ($1.3 million), increased theatre payroll driven by minimum wage increases and increased theatre staffing due to higher theatre attendance in the first quarter of 2009 as compared to the same period in 2008 ($1.7 million), additional marketing costs ($1.8 million) primarily arising from the non-cash barter agreements previously discussed, costs related to expanded service offerings such as the elimination of charges for online ticketing and 3D technology licensing payments ($0.8 million) and higher supplies, services and utility costs relating to higher business volumes during the quarter ($1.0 million). These increases were offset by the impact of disposed and closed theatres ($0.6 million) and lower costs relating to the SCENE loyalty program and the Fund's interactive media initiatives ($0.5 million). SCENE costs have decreased slightly from the prior year period as the first quarter of 2008 included higher program marketing costs in addition to the regular operating costs of SCENE. Interactive media costs have decreased as well due to the redevelopment of cineplex.com during the first quarter of 2008.

General and administrative expenses. The following table highlights the movement in general and administrative ("G&A") expenses during the quarter, including the Fund's total Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") costs, and the net general and administrative costs without factoring in the LTIP program (expressed in thousands of dollars):



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G&A expenses First Quarter
-----------------------------------
2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

G&A excluding LTIP $ 8,693 $ 7,723 12.6%
LTIP $ 2,679 $ 1,844 45.3%
-----------------------------------
G&A costs as reported $ 11,372 $ 9,567 18.9%
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


General and administrative costs increased $1.8 million as a result of increased costs under the LTIP ($0.8 million) and increased direct costs ($1.0 million). The direct costs increased due to a $0.4 million increase in head office payroll as a result of higher headcount relating to the Fund's new initiatives, higher professional fees ($0.2 million) and other costs ($0.4 million). The Fund has received approval for the proposed wind-up of the Famous Players defined benefit pension plan and estimates that the expense to be recorded on the wind-up will be $1.7 million.

The Fund reported income before undernoted ("adjusted EBITDA") for the three months ended March 31, 2009 of $29.9 million, as compared to income before undernoted of $25.1 million for the prior period. These changes were due to the aggregate effect of the factors described above.

Distributable Cash

For the three months ended March 31, 2009, distributable cash per Fund unit was $0.381 as compared to $0.328 for the three months ended March 31, 2008. The declared distributions per Fund unit for the current period were $0.315 and $0.300 for the same period in 2008. The payout ratios were 83% and 91%, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008.
