Explanation of Responses:
( 1)  Common Units of National Cinemedia, LLC ("NCM LLC") may be converted at any time into shares of the Issuer on a one-for-one basis and have no expiration date.
( 2)  Common Units were issued pursuant to the Common Unit Adjustment Agreement, dated as of February 13, 2007, by and among NCM LLC, the Issuer, American Multi-Cinema, Inc. ("AMCI") and other parties thereto (the "CUAA"). The adjustment was triggered by the acquisition of Carmike Cinemas, Inc. ("Carmike"). Because the Carmike theatres were subject to a pre-existing agreement with a third party and will not receive advertising services from NCM LLC, in exchange for the Common Units AMCI will be obligated to make quarterly payments to NCM LLC reflecting the estimated value of the advertising services at the Carmike theatres as if NCM LLC had provided such services. AMC Starplex, LLC ("AMCS") was designated by AMCI to be the recipient of the Common Units.
( 3)  Of the final reported securities in this Form 4, 23,186,639 Common Units are held directly by AMCS. 14,805,991 Common Units are held directly by AMCI and 23,186,639 Common Units are held indirectly by AMCI through AMCS, a wholly-owned subsidiary. All of the reported Common Units are held indirectly by AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. ("AMCEH"), the parent of AMCI.
( 4)  Common Units were issued pursuant to the CUAA. The adjustment was triggered by the annual adjustment mechanism in the CUAA. The Common Units are issued in exchange for the exclusive advertising rights granted to NCM LLC by AMCI pursuant to the Exhibitor Services Agreement between AMCI and NCM LLC dated February 13, 2007 (the "ESA"). AMCS was designated by AMCI to be the recipient of the Common Units.
( 5)  AMCI reached a Memorandum of Understanding with NCM LLC to implement the requirements of the final judgment entered in connection with the US DOJ approval of the Carmike acquisition (the "MOU"). The final judgment required AMCI to transfer certain theatres to a competitor of NCM LLC for advertising services and AMCI returned Common Units to NCM LLC, calculated under the CUAA as if such transferred theatres had been disposed.
( 6)  Pursuant to the MOU and in addition to the Common Units returned as described in note (5) above, AMCI agreed to return additional Common Units to NCM LLC with an aggregate value of $25,000,000 in exchange for a waiver of the exclusivity provisions of the ESA as to the transferred theatres.
