As of March 31, 2020, the Company had signed lease agreements with total noncancelable lease payments of approximately $220,403 related to theatre leases that had not yet commenced.  The timing of lease commencement is dependent on the completion of construction of the related theatre facility.  Additionally, these amounts are based on estimated square footage and costs to construct each facility and may be subject to adjustment upon final completion of each construction project.  In accordance with ASC Topic 842, fixed minimum lease payments related to these theatres are not included in the right-of-use assets and lease liabilities as of March 31, 2020.  There were no noncancelable lease agreements signed, but not yet commenced, related to equipment leases as of March 31, 2020.
