Revenue Recognition

The Company’s patrons have the option to purchase movie tickets well in advance of a movie showtime or right before the movie showtime, or at any point in between those two timeframes depending on seat availability. The Company recognizes such admissions revenue when the showtime for a purchased movie ticket has passed. Concession revenue is recognized when products are sold to the consumer. Other revenue primarily consists of screen advertising and screen rental revenue, promotional income, studio trailer placements and transactional fees. Except for National CineMedia, LLC. ("NCM") screen advertising advances discussed below in Note 8, these revenues are generally recognized when the Company has performed the related services. The Company sells gift cards and discount ticket vouchers, the proceeds from which are recorded as deferred revenue. Deferred revenue for gift cards and discount ticket vouchers is recognized when they are redeemed for concession items or, if redeemed for movie tickets, when the showtime has passed. The Company generally records breakage revenue on gift cards and discount ticket vouchers based on redemption activity and historical experience with unused balances. The Company offers a subscription program in the U.S. whereby patrons can pay a monthly or annual fee to receive a monthly credit for use towards a future movie ticket purchase. The Company records the subscription program fees as

deferred revenue and records admissions revenue when the showtime for a movie ticket purchased with a credit has passed. The Company has loyalty programs in the U.S. and many of its international locations that either have a prepaid annual fee or award points to customers as purchases are made. For those loyalty programs that have a prepaid annual fee, the Company recognizes the fee collected as other revenue on a straight-line basis. For those loyalty programs that award points to customers based on their purchases, the Company records a portion of the original transaction proceeds as deferred revenue based on the number of reward points issued to customers and recognizes the deferred revenue when the customer redeems such points. The value of loyalty points issued is based on the estimated fair value of the rewards offered. The Company records breakage revenue on its loyalty and subscription programs generally upon the expiration of loyalty points or subscription credits. Advances collected on other contracts are deferred and recognized during the period in which the Company satisfies the related performance obligations, which may differ from the period in which the advances are collected.

Accounts receivable as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 included approximately $19.4 and $23.5, respectively, of receivables related to contracts with customers. The Company did not record any assets related to the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with customers during the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
