1. Recitals Incorporated; Certain Defined Terms. The Recitals set forth above are incorporated into this Amendment and shall be deemed terms and provisions hereof, the same as if fully set forth in this Paragraph 1. Capitalized terms that are used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Lease.
2. Effectiveness. The parties are entering into this Amendment in connection with the contemplated acquisition of all the outstanding capital stock of Century Theatres, Inc. by Cinemark Ho]dings, Inc. and Cinemark USA, Inc. (the “Acquisition”) pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement dated as of the date hereof (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”). This Amendment shall become automatically effective upon, and only upon, the closing of the Acquisition (the “Effective Date”). In the event the Acquisition is not consummated and the Stock Purchase Agreement is terminated, this Agreement shall become void ab initio and of no force and effect.
3. Initial Term of Lease and Extension Options. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Lease but subject to the provisions of the Lease applicable to the exercise an validity of such Renewal Terms, the Initial Term of the Lease is hereby extended to and shall expire on *** and rather than *** Renewal Terms of *** each (as provided in the Lease), Tenant shall have the option to extend the Initial Term for *** consecutive Renewal Terms of *** each, followed by *** additional and final Renewal Term of***
4. Landlord’s Recapture Right. If, at any time during the term of the Lease, Tenant fails to satisfy the Operating Condition (defined below), for reasons other than Excused Closure (defined below), and such failure continues for six (6) consecutive months or more, then upon notice from Landlord to Tenant at any time thereafter (provided that the Operating Condition remains unsatisfied), Landlord shall have the right to terminate the Lease and to recapture the Leased Premises, without payment to Tenant, effective upon the date set forth in Landlord’s termination notice (but not sooner than 30 days after the date of the termination notice).
The term “Operating Condition” shall mean and require that the entire Leased Premises is being continuously operated and regularly open for business to the general public as a motion picture theater complex in accordance with the Lease, at least on such days and at such times that a majority of Century’s and Cinemark’s other motion picture theater complexes in the Reno, Nevada metropolitan area typically are open and operating. The term “Excused Closure” shall mean (i) periods of construction, alterations, renovation, remodeling and repair of the Leased Premises undertaken in accordance with this Lease (including repairs and restoration following damage or destruction due to fire or other casualty) provided that Tenant (A) prosecutes such work to completion with reasonable diligence, (B) exercises its reasonable efforts to minimize the length of time of such closure, and (C) exercises its reasonable efforts to limit the number of motion picture screens at the Premises that are not operated due to such closure; (ii) periods when Tenant cannot practicably operate its business in the Premises as a consequence of force majeure; and (iii) additional periods, not to exceed four (4) days in any Lease Year, when Tenant in its sole discretion elects not to operate its business in the Leased Premises.
5. Self-Insurance of Property/Casualty Risks. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in the Lease, during any period in which Tenant maintains a Net Worth (as defined below) of at least One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000.00), Tenant may self insure the so-called “physical property damage insurance” otherwise required to be maintained by Tenant pursuant to the Lease. As used herein, the “Net Worth” of Tenant at any given time shall mean an amount equal to the sum of (A) the product of (1) Tenant’s so-called EBITDA (i.e., earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization), calculated in accordance with commercially reasonable past practice preceding the Effective Date by Tenant’s parent corporation, over the 12-month period immediately preceding the time of measurement, multiplied by (2) eight (8), plus (B) the amount of cash and cash equivalents held by Tenant on the most recent anniversary of Tenant’s annual insurance renewal date, minus (C) the amount of outstanding funded debt of Tenant on such determination date.
6. Damage and Destruction – Repairs by Tenant. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease, the following shall apply to repairs and restoration upon damage or destruction:
(A) Tenant’s Obligation to Repair, If the Leased Premises are damaged or destroyed by any peril after the Commencement Date of this Lease, then Tenant shall repair the damage and restore the Leased Premises in accordance with this (A) and (B), except as provided in subsection (B) hereinbelow. Unless Tenant is not required to effect the repairs and restoration pursuant to subsection (B) below, Tenant shall promptly apply for and diligently seek to obtain all necessary governmental permits and approvals for the repair and restoration of the Leased Premises and, upon issuance of such governmental permits and approvals, promptly commence and diligently prosecute the completion of the repairs and restoration of the Leased Premises (to the extent permitted by applicable law) to substantially the same condition in which the Leased Premises were immediately prior to such damage or destruction (subject to any alterations which Tenant would be permitted to make to the Leased Premises pursuant to this Lease).
(B) Damage in Excess of 20%. If the Leased Premises are damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty which occurs in the last two years of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term and Tenant has no further options to extend the term of the Lease, and if the cost to repair such damage or to restore the Leased Premises as required in Section (A) exceeds twenty percent (20%) of the replacement cost of the Leased Premises (as determined by an independent architect selected by Tenant and approved by Landlord in Landlord’s reasonable discretion) and such damage makes it impracticable to operate the Leased Premises in the reasonable business judgment of Tenant, then (i) Tenant shall have the option, upon notice to Landlord not later than one hundred eighty (180) days following the occurrence of the applicable casualty, not to undertake the repairs and restoration of the Leased Premises, and (ii) if Tenant so elects not to undertake the repairs and restoration, then Tenant nevertheless shall raze Tenant’s Building and remove from the Leased Premises all building materials and debris and all underground installations that serve only the Leased Premises (including the footings and foundations of Tenant’s Building and the utility lines serving Tenant’s Building) and restore the surface of the Premises to a graded and landscaped surface.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease, the proceeds of any property insurance maintained by Tenant (including proceeds of self-insurance, if applicable), net of actual out-of-pocket costs to adjust and settle the loss, shall be distributed to and used by Tenant, in accordance with the Lease.
7. Permitted Assignments and Release. Notwithstanding anything in the Lease to the contrary, the following shall apply and control:
Subject to the next sentence, Tenant may sublet or assign this Lease only upon receipt of Landlord’s written consent which consent Landlord agrees shall
not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, it is agreed that at any time during the term of this Lease, Tenant may, without Landlord’s consent or approval (but only upon prior written notice to Landlord), assign this Lease or sublet the Leased Premises to: (i) any wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenant, (ii) any corporation, trust, partnership or individual that owns fifty percent (50%) or more of the issued and outstanding stock of Tenant, or (iii) any legal entity that is engaged in the motion picture exhibition business and operates motion picture theater complexes containing at least 100 theater screens (auditoria), excluding the Leased Premises and any other premises concurrently being acquired from Tenant. A change in control of Tenant shall not constitute an assignment of this Lease requiring Landlord’s consent or approval, provided, however, that if any assignee under clause (i) above ceases to be a wholly owned subsidiary of Tenant, then the same shall be deemed to constitute an assignment which is prohibited without Landlord’s approval under Article XI of the Lease.
If Tenant shall assign this Lease pursuant to clause (ii) or clause (iii) above, and provided that (A) the assignee assumes in writing all obligations of Tenant under the Lease and delivers such executed written assumption to Landlord, and (B) Landlord shall have received from assignee’s chief financial officer or controller a certification that the Net Worth of the assignee (determined as provided above) equals or exceeds $100,000,000.00 calculated in accordance with Cinemark USA, Inc.’s methodology in calculating Net Worth as set forth in Section 5 hereof, then Tenant shall be released of any and all liability thereafter arising under the Lease. Except as expressly provided above, no assignment, subletting or other transfer of the Lease or the Leased Premises shall relieve or release Tenant from any liabilities or obligations arising under the Lease.
8. Leasehold Financing. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease, Tenant shall have the right, without Landlord’s consent to encumber the leasehold estate created under the Lease and/or to grant a security interest in Tenant’s removable trade fixtures, furnishings and equipment located within the Leased Premises (but not to encumber Landlord’s fee interest in the Premises), to secure financing provided to Tenant by any bank, thrift institution, insurance company or other institutional lender. Tenant agrees to notify Landlord of any such encumbrance. With respect to any such leasehold financing (and provided that Tenant is not in default under the Lease beyond any applicable notice or cure period), upon thirty (30) days’ prior written request from Tenant, Landlord will execute and deliver to the secured lender a “Landlord’s Agreement” in the form attached hereto as Exhibit “A-1”.
9. Memorandum of Lease. On the Effective Date, Landlord and Tenant will enter into and record a short form memorandum of the Lease, in the form of Exhibit “A-2” attached hereto or otherwise in proper form for recording. Tenant shall be solely responsible for the cost of recording the memorandum, including (if applicable) any transfer taxes that may be due and payable in connection with the Lease.
10. Gross Sales. Notwithstanding anything in the Lease to the contrary the definition of Gross Sales shall be as follows:
“Gross Sales” shall mean the total amount of all revenues (whether in cash or credit) generated or derived from the conduct of any business at the Leased Premises, including (without limitation) all box office receipts of or at the Leased Premises (including receipts from tickets or gift certificates redeemed at the Leased Premises regardless of the point of sale), as well as any and all receipts from the sale of goods, services, merchandise, beverages, food, vending machines and video games at the Leased Premises; provided, however, that the following shall be excluded from “Gross Sales” (i) credits and refunds made with respect to admissions or other sales otherwise included in Gross Sales, (ii) all federal, state, county and city admission taxes, sales and use taxes, entertainment taxes, royalty taxes, gross receipt taxes and other similar taxes now or hereafter imposed and owing to the taxing authority by Tenant (whether such taxes are collected from customers separately from the selling price of admission tickets or absorbed by Tenant); (iii) receipts from the sale of gift certificates or tickets sold but not redeemed at the Leased Premises; (iv) with respect to any tickets or admissions ordered or paid for over the internet and redeemed at the Leased Premises, the portion (if any) of the sale price that exceeds Tenant’s actual box-office ticket price; (v) sales price for merchandise returned, (vi) amounts retained by credit card issuers, (vii) sales outside of the ordinary course of business, (viii) amount of credit card sales deemed uncollectible, (ix) advertising revenues including without limitation media, sponsorship, and promotional advertising of any kind, and (x) the receipts of or from so-called “four-wall deals” with a party that is not affiliated with Tenant, except that the portion thereof or other amounts paid to Tenant in connection with such “four-wall deals” shall be included in “Gross Sales” under this Lease. Commissions or surcharges paid to agencies or other third parties not affiliated with Tenant for selling tickets or processing credit card transactions, and any sums paid to third parties not affiliated with Tenant for the use or rental of vending machines, pay telephones, amusement machines and other similar devices shall be deducted from “Gross Sales” (if and to the extent previously included in “Gross Sales”).
11. Alterations by Tenant.
Notwithstanding anything in the Lease to the contrary, the following shall apply and control:
Tenant shall have the right from time to time, at its sole cost and expense, to make nonstructural interior alterations, improvements, or changes in the Leased Premises as Tenant shall deem necessary or beneficial consistent with Tenant’s exclusive use of the Leased Premises as a motion picture theatre complex and if Tenant undertakes such work, Tenant must pursue such work until completion. Tenant shall fully and completely indemnify Landlord against any mechanics’ or other liens in connection with the making of such alterations and changes, and shall pay all costs, expenses, and charges thereof. Alterations, changes and improvements shall be performed in a first-class manner and must comply with all laws, zoning regulations and
ordinances, and any conditions on permits issued pursuant thereto. If it is necessary in Tenant’s reasonable judgment to close any of the motion picture screens during the period in which any of Tenant’s work permitted hereunder is performed, said closure(s) shall be effected only in accordance with the provisions governing an “Excused Closure”, as that term is defined in Section 4 of this Amendment.
12. Rooftop Equipment and Access. Tenant shall have the exclusive right to install, operate, repair, replace and maintain satellite dishes and/or other communication transmission devices (collectively “Rooftop Equipment”) on the roof of the theatre necessary or appropriate to accept any transmission of signals to the theatre for all permitted uses, including without limitation, for movies, advertising, concerts, telecasts, corporate meetings or communications and the like; but Tenant shall be prohibited from entering into any leases or licenses with any third parties for retransmission from such Rooftop Equipment, and Tenant shall not retransmit such signals to a third party outside of the Leased Premises. Landlord shall not use, or permit any person or entity (other than Tenant), to use the roof or exterior walls of the theatre for any purpose whatsoever, and Landlord agrees not to enter into any leases or licenses with third parties for the use of the theater rooftop. Landlord shall be responsible for any damage to the rooftop caused by the Landlord or a third party that enters onto the theatre rooftop with Landlord’s permission, and Landlord shall indemnify and hold Tenant harmless from all loss, cost, damage or expense which Tenant incurs as a result of the acts or omissions of said third party or their agents or employer. Tenant hereby indemnifies and agrees to hold Landlord and Landlord’s successors and assigns harmless from all loss, cost, damage or expense which Landlord incurs as a result of the actions of Tenant, or its agents or employees in installing and utilizing Rooftop Equipment as permitted hereunder.
13. Alterations and Development by Landlord. Landlord agrees that with respect to the Entire Premises, the following restrictions shall apply to Landlord’s usage and improvement thereof:
|(i)||Any alterations or new construction to the Entire Premises or contiguous property owned or controlled by Landlord or its affiliates as of the Effective Date (the “Contiguous Property”) may be made without Tenant’s consent only if such alterations or new construction do not materially and adversely affect Tenant’s operations (including, without limitation, parking, access, ingress and egress to the theatre building and visibility of the theatre building and/or on-building theatre signage). Any such alterations or new construction on the Entire Premises and any cross parking or cross access arrangements between the Entire Premises and the Contiguous Property will first be submitted to Tenant for approval, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and Tenant shall be required to identify the manner in which Tenant’s operations are so affected. If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree on whether such alteration or new construction materially and adversely affects Tenant’s operations, including without limitation, parking, access, ingress and egress and visibility, the parties agree to submit the issue to binding arbitration pursuant to the Lease.|
|(ii)||Landlord shall not lease, sell or use any space on Non-leased Premises or the Contiguous Property for operating a motion picture theatre.|

|(iv)||Landlord shall not place any carts, kiosks or other temporary structures selling food and/or beverages within common areas of the Entire Premises unless such carts, kiosks or other structures are more than 500 feet from the theatre. Such carts and kiosks may not sell any food or beverages sold in the theatre. Landlord shall not place any vending machines selling food and/or beverages on the common areas of the Entire Premises unless such vending machines are more than 500 feet from the theatre.|

In no event shall Tenant be permitted to operate the Leased Premises as a so-called “adult” theater complex.
15. No Obligation To Continuously Operate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Lease or otherwise, Landlord hereby acknowledges that Tenant shall not be required to continuously operate and open for business in or from the Premises and any election by Tenant to cease operations at the Premises shall not constitute a default or breach of the terms and conditions of the Lease.
16. Removal of Equipment, Surrender and Demolition. Upon the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of the Lease, and provided Tenant is not in default under the Lease beyond applicable notice and cure periods, and said earlier termination is not due to Tenant’s default under the Lease, then for a period extending forty-five (45) days beyond the date of said expiration or termination, Tenant shall be permitted to remove any and all furniture, fixtures and equipment owned and installed by Tenant in, on or to the Leased Premises. Such removal shall be: (a) at Tenant’s sole cost and expense; (b) conducted in such manner that no liens or claims shall arise or exist in connection therewith; (c) conducted in a manner to avoid unreasonable interference with the activities of Landlord and subsequent tenants or occupants upon the Leased Premises and Tenant shall repair all damages caused by such removal.
