Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On February 22, 2008, we issued a promissory note to Nationwide Theatres Corp. (“Nationwide”) in the original principal amount of $21 million as a part of the funding of our acquisition from Nationwide’s affiliate of 15 cinemas located in Hawaii and California.  That note included certain provisions for the downward adjustment of the principal amount owed, depending upon the occurrence of certain events, the occurrence or non-occurrence of which were uncertain at the time the note was issued.  We have recently given notice to Nationwide that, in accordance with these principal reduction provisions, we are entitled to a $12.5 million reduction in the principal amount owed.  When cumulated with previous adjustments, this reduction will have the effect of reducing the principal amount of the note to $592,000.  We are currently awaiting a response from Nationwide to our notice.
