(2) Theatre level cash flow, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA exclude merger and acquisition-related expenses, primarily related to the Rave transaction, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Carmike Cinemas’ President and Chief Executive Officer David Passman stated, “While only slightly outperforming the industry box office, we are nevertheless pleased that Carmike’s quarterly box office results were ahead of the overall U.S. industry for the fifth consecutive quarter. The Company’s Q3 admissions revenue bettered the reported national 6.7% year-over-year quarterly decline by about 10 basis points. We think it’s important to note that the 2012 domestic third quarter box office competed with the all-time strongest like quarter on record in 2011, somewhat mitigating the year over year decline. The nine month US total box office is up 3.6% compared to 2011, and Carmike is up 8.1%. We think the year to date numbers bode well for both Carmike and the industry at large.
