Disclaimer AMC’s consolidated financial statements are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Certain items contained in this presentation, including Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flows, are non-GAAP financial measures and are provided as a supplement and should not be considered an alternative to any GAAP measure of our operating performance, liquidity or profitability. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be a substitute for or superior to any financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. While management believes such non-GAAP measures provide recipients with useful supplemental information, there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool, and these measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures (even those similarly-titled) used by other companies. Such non-GAAP measures are presented here because we believe they are widely used by investors and analysts to measure performance. Our management also uses such measures for their internal analysis. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this presentation should be reviewed in conjunction with AMC’s financial statements and related footnotes contained in documents filed with the SEC. See the Appendix to this presentation for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measure. This presentation includes “forward-looking statements”. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of words such as “forecast,” “plan,” “estimate,” “will,” “would,” “project,” “maintain,” “intend,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “strategy,” “future,” “likely,” “may,” “should,” “believe,” “continue,” and other similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time the statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events, and are subject to risks, trends, uncertainties and other facts that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. These risks, trends, uncertainties and facts include, but are not limited to, risks related to: motion picture production and performance; AMC's lack of control over distributors of films; intense competition in the geographic areas in which AMC operates; AMC Stubs A-List not meeting anticipated revenue projections impacting projected incremental adjusted EBITDA; increased use of alternative film delivery methods or other forms of entertainment; shrinking exclusive theatrical release windows; general and international economic, political, social and financial market conditions and other risks including the effects of the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union; risks and uncertainties relating to AMC's significant indebtedness; limitations on the availability of capital; certain covenants in the agreements that govern AMC’s indebtedness may limit its ability to take advantage of certain business opportunities; risks relating to AMC's inability to achieve the expected benefits and performance from its recent acquisitions; AMC's ability to refinance its indebtedness on favorable terms; optimizing AMC's theatre circuit through construction and the transformation of its existing theatres may be subject to delay and unanticipated costs; failures, unavailability or security breaches of AMC's information systems; risks relating to impairment losses and theatre and other closure charges; AMC's ability to utilize net operating loss carryforwards to reduce its future tax liability or valuation allowances taken with respect to deferred tax assets; review by antitrust authorities in connection with acquisition opportunities; risks relating to unexpected costs or unknown liabilities relating to recently completed acquisitions; risks relating to the incurrence of legal liability including costs associated with pending class action lawsuits; dependence on key personnel for current and future performance and our ability to attract and retain senior executives and other key personnel; poor financial results preventing AMC from deploying strategic initiatives; operating a business in unfamiliar international markets; increased costs to comply or resulting from a failure to comply with governmental regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and pending future domestic privacy laws and regulations; and other risks, trends, uncertainties and other facts discussed in the reports AMC has filed with the SEC. Should one or more of these risks, trends, uncertainties or facts materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by the forward-looking statements contained herein. Accordingly, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. For a detailed discussion of risks, trends and uncertainties facing AMC, see the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the documents AMC has filed with the SEC, and the risks, trends and uncertainties identified in their other public filings. AMC does not intend, and undertakes no duty, to update any information contained herein to reflect future events or circumstances, except as required by applicable law. 2

68 Accompanying Notes 1) We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) plus (i) income tax provision (benefit), (ii) interest expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance and to include attributable EBITDA from equity investments in theatre operations in international markets and any cash distributions of earnings from other equity method investees. These further adjustments are itemized above. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure commonly used in our industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings (loss) as an indicator of operating performance (as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We have included Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it provides management and investors with additional information to measure our performance and estimate our value. Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. For example, Adjusted EBITDA: • does not reflect our capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; • does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; • does not reflect the significant interest expenses, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt; • excludes income tax payments that represent a reduction in cash available to us; • does not reflect any cash requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future; and • does not reflect the impact of divestitures that were required in connection with recently completed acquisitions. 2) Amounts represent preopening expense related to temporarily closed screens under renovation, theatre and other closure expense for the permanent closure of screens including the related accretion of interest, non-cash deferred digital equipment rent expense, and disposition of assets and other non-operating gains or losses included in operating expenses. The Company has excluded these items as they are non-cash in nature, include components of interest cost for the time value of money or are non-operating in nature. 3 Includes U.S. non-theatre distributions from equity method investments and International non-theatre distributions from equity method investments to the extent received. The Company believes including cash distributions is an appropriate reflection of the contribution of these investments to its operations. 4) Attributable EBITDA includes the EBITDA from minority equity investments in theatre operators in certain international markets. See below for a reconciliation of the Company’s equity (earnings) loss of non- consolidated entities to attributable EBITDA. Because these equity investments are in theatre operators in regions where the Company holds a significant market share, the Company believes attributable EBITDA is more indicative of the performance of these equity investments and management uses this measure to monitor and evaluate these equity investments. The Company also provides services to these theatre operators including information technology systems, certain on-screen advertising services and our gift card and package ticket program. As these investments relate only to our Nordic acquisition, the second quarter of 2017 represents the first time the Company has made this adjustment and does not impact prior historical presentations of Adjusted EBITDA. 5) Merger, acquisition and transition costs are excluded as they are non-operating in nature. 6) Stock-based compensation expense is non-cash or non-recurring expense included in General and Administrative: Other.

70 Accompanying Notes Starting in the fourth quarter of 2018, AMC disclosed a new “Adjusted Free Cash Flow” metric as a measure of our liquidity. We believe this measure is indicative of our ability to generate cash in excess of maintenance capital expenditures and certain other non-operating costs and for other uses including repayment of our corporate borrowings and generating cash for growth opportunities. 1) We present “Adjusted Free Cash Flow” as a supplemental measure of our liquidity. Management uses this measure and we believe it is helpful to investors as an indication of our ability to generate cash in- excess-of maintenance capital expenditures and certain other non-operating and costs and for other uses including repayment of our corporate borrowings and generating cash for growth opportunities. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure and is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, plus merger, acquisition and transaction costs, less maintenance capital expenditures and landlord contributions. Adjusted free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. It should be considered in addition to, not a substitute for or superior to net cash provided by operating activities. The term adjusted free cash flow may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. Also provided is a reconciliation of Capital Expenditures disclosed in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows made up of growth capital expenditures, maintenance capital expenditures and change in construction payables as further explanation of the components of adjusted free cash flow. 2) Merger, acquisition and transition costs are excluded as they are non-operating. We excluded the 2017 Loss on NCM that was recorded in Merger, acquisition and transaction costs since it was non-cash. 3) Maintenance capital expenditures are amounts required to keep our existing theatres in compliance with regulatory requirement and in a sustainable good operating condition, including expenditures for repair of HVAC, sight and sound systems, compliance with ADA requirements and technology upgrades of existing systems. 4) Growth capital expenditures are investments that enhance the guest experience and grow revenues and profits and include initiatives such as theatre remodels, acquisitions, newly built theatres, premium large formats, enhanced food and beverage offerings and service models and technology that enable efficiencies and additional revenue opportunities. We did not deduct these from adjusted free cash flow because they are discretionary, and the related benefits may not be fully reflected in our net cash provided by operating activities. 5) Landlord contributions represent reimbursements in our strategic growth initiatives by our landlords. 6) Change in construction payables are changes in amounts accrued for capital expenditures and are not deducted or added back to Adjusted Free Cash Flow as they fluctuate significantly from period to period based on the timing of actual payments.
