    SeekingAlpha just published a new article I wrote on Reading International (RDI) as an “Editor’s Pick.” This article discusses Reading’s recently announced Q1 2012 results and growth prospects, highlighting continued growth of global cinema exhibition operating results. The article also sets forth key disclosures in Reading's March Q1, 2012 10-Q and other filings that offer investors substantial information about Reading's business plan and its large pool of valuable real estate assets.
