Press Release

Egami Media Celebrates Earth Day with Free Online Showings of IMAX Theatre Sensation “The Living Sea”

Image Entertainment Digital Media Subsidiary Goes Green with Packaging-free Content and Environmental Message

April 21, 2008 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

CHATSWORTH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Egami Media, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Image Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: DISK), announced today an online event in recognition of Earth Day on April 22 where consumers can either stream or download free-of-charge the Academy Award®-nominated documentary “The Living Sea.”

The film will be offered for free stream or download for five days beginning today on MSN Green (http://green.msn.com), with additional digital partners including CinemaNow, MovieLink, Amazon UnBox, BitTorrent, Vudu and mSpot.

“The Living Sea,” which was first released in 1995 for showing in IMAX theatres, takes viewers to the world’s oceans. Narrated by Meryl Streep and with music by Sting, the film explores the mysterious depths of the ocean, letting viewers come face-to-face with life-sized humpback whales, swim with jellyfish, witness the bizarre spawning behavior of giant clams, surf in Hawaii, deep-sea dive in Palau and test their courage with the Coast Guard in some of the world’s roughest seas. “The Living Sea” celebrates the “world ocean” in all its beauty and diversity. The film was inducted into the IMAX Hall of Fame in 2007.

Viewers will also be able to see previews of MacGillivray Freeman’s “Grand Canyon Adventure: River At Risk 3D,” which just-opened at IMAX Theatres across the country, as well as trailers for other MacGillivray Freeman IMAX Theatre favorites, such as “Hurricane on the Bayou,” “The Alps” and “Mystery of the Nile” will also be available.

“This event will expose thousands of consumers to the fast arriving future of digital video delivery where plastic discs and packaging is no longer necessary,” said Mitch Mallon, vice president of Digital Sales of Egami Media. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day than to make this film available to everyone in the world, and to do so in such an environmentally friendly way.”

“We are honored to offer ‘The Living Sea’ as our gift to the world on Earth Day,” said film director Greg MacGillivray. “We all have a stake in the future of our oceans. My hope is that millions of people will participate in this online event and come away inspired with a renewed love and appreciation for all life under the sea and with a determination to protect it.”
