Seasonality The company’s revenues are usually seasonal, coinciding with the timing of releases of motion pictures by the major distributors. The unexpected emergence of a hit film during other periods can alter the traditional trend. The timing of movie releases can have a significant effect on the company’s results of operations, and the results of one fiscal quarter (year ended December 26, 2013) are not necessarily indicative of results for the next fiscal quarter or any other fiscal quarter. The seasonality of motion picture exhibition, however, has become less pronounced as motion picture studios are releasing motion pictures somewhat more evenly throughout the year. Regulation The company’s theatres must comply with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the ADA) to the extent that such properties are public accommodations and/or commercial facilities as defined by the ADA.
