NATIONAL AMUSEMENTS SALUTES U.S. MILITARY WITH TWO WEEKS OF FREE ADMISSIONS TO THEATRES, AND ON-GOING MILITARY DISCOUNT

4/17/2007
National Amusements Partners with USO of Metropolitan New York to help them in their efforts to support our nation’s military family.

Dedham, MA—April 17, 2007-- National Amusements, Inc., a world leader in the motion picture exhibition industry operating more than 1,500 screens in the U.S., U.K., Latin America and Russia, today announced a partnership with the USO of Metropolitan New York to help that organization in its efforts to provide outstanding support to our nation’s military family. National Amusements will proudly salute all Active Service Personnel and their dependents with FREE admission and FREE small popcorn and fountain drinks at all of their movie theatre locations in the U.S.A. from today, April 17, 2007 through April 30, 2007. Also, Effective May 1, 2007, all National Amusements movie theatres in the USA will institute an on-going Military discount price policy for all Active Service Personnel, their spouses and dependents. The special military program pricing will be $7.00 for general admission, and $5.00 for matinee and children. Appropriate Active Service ID must be presented at the theatre box office to receive free admission, free concession offer, and military discount.

Shari Redstone, president of National Amusements who was honored today as the USO of Metropolitan New York’s Women of the Year noted, “The USO excels at providing the programs and services that the military and their families need for recreation, entertainment, and to build community and keep families connected in challenging situations. National Amusements wanted to continue that tradition, and what better way to offer enjoyment and relaxation, and to keep families together, than with the magic of movies. We are very excited to offer this program to our men and women in uniform, and their families as a small token of the appreciation and respect we feel for those who serve our country and put their lives at risk on a daily basis.”

National Amusements theatres are located in the following states: California, Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Virginia. For more information about specific locations please visit: http://www.nationalamusements.com/theatres/locations.asp

Brian Whiting, Executive Director of the USO noted, “This partnership with National Amusements is the single largest donation the USO of Metropolitan New York has ever received. The ability for military and their loved ones to receive complimentary movie admission, popcorn and refreshments is an immeasurable contribution and will make a direct impact on the lives of our servicemen and women. This program will serve thousands of our Armed Forces and their families who sacrifice so much for our country. Allowing military members to get back in touch with family after a long stretch in combat is an experience that can’t be matched. A million thank you’s to Shari Redstone and to National Amusements for creating an amazing program for America’s heroes.”
