SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES. Basis of Accounting The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Revenues are recognized as earned and expenses are recorded as obligations are incurred. Revenue Recognition Net revenues from motion picture exploitation consist of the Partnership's pro rata share of revenues from the licensing of film exhibition rights, less related expenses for prints and advertising, other distribution expenses, participations to third parties and distribution fees, unless deferred (see Note 6). Cash Equivalents Cash equivalents consist of short-term highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less from the date of issuance. The carrying amount approximates fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments. Concentration of Credit Risk Financial instruments which potentially subject the Partnership to a concentration of credit risk principally consist of cash in excess of the financial institutions' insurance limits. The Partnership invests available cash with high credit quality financial institutions. Amortization of Motion Picture Costs Costs, including production administration fees, which benefit future periods are capitalized. Amortization is computed under the individual-film-forecast method based upon net revenues recognized in proportion to the Joint Venture's estimate of ultimate net revenues to be received. Unamortized costs are compared with net realizable value on a film by film basis, and losses are recognized to the extent costs exceed estimated net realizable value. Income Taxes No provision for income taxes has been made in the financial statements since such taxes are the responsibility of the individual partners rather than that of the Partnership. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Certain reclassifications of prior year information have been made to conform with the current year presentation.

Restricted Cash Restricted cash includes cash held in short-term investments to collateralize letters of credit totalling $779,000 and $1.0 million in fiscal 1994 and 1993, respectively, that will expire in one year or less.

The quarter ended July 30, 1999 includes 13 weeks of operating activity, compared to 14 weeks of activity for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. Foreign Currency Translation - In the first quarter of fiscal 2000, we determined that the functional currencies of certain of our foreign subsidiaries had changed from the local currencies to the Euro. Accordingly, assets and liabilities of our foreign subsidiaries are translated into Euro at the exchange rates in effect as of the balance sheet date, and results of operations for each subsidiary are translated using average rates in effect for the period presented. Translation adjustments have been included within shareholders' equity as a cumulative other comprehensive loss. The effect of the change in functional currencies did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Outstanding options to purchase approximately 1,684,563 and 1,219,273 shares of Common Stock at exercise prices above the market value of Common Stock were excluded from the calculation of earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2001 and 2000, respectively, because their effect would have been antidilutive. USE OF ESTIMATES The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires the use of estimates and assumptions by management in determining the reported amounts of liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

On June 30, 2001, the Financial Accounting Standard Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142 (SFAS 142), "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" which established Standards for reporting acquired goodwill and other intangible assets.
