BRT Urges Election of Fred Gould - an Independent Trustee

Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from BRT Realty Trust

    GREAT NECK, N.Y., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- BRT Realty Trust (NYSE:   BRT) on
 Friday sent to the Shareholders of Entertainment Properties Trust (NYSE:   EPR)
 the following letter. A copy of the letter is set forth below:
 
     TO SHAREHOLDERS OF ENTERTAINMENT PROPERTIES TRUST (EPR)
 
     BRT Realty Trust, by far EPR's largest shareholder, has been soliciting
 proxies in opposition to management's nominee for the Board of Trustees and
 seeking your vote to elect its designee, Fred Gould, as a Trustee.  The
 meeting will be held on May 9, 2001 and we are asking you to ACT NOW and vote
 BRT's white proxy card FOR FRED GOULD.  Note that if you have previously
 signed and returned the proxy card to Entertainment Properties Trust you can
 now change your vote.  Only the latest dated proxy card counts.
     There are compelling reasons for you to vote for Fred Gould:
 
     *     Fred is totally independent of EPR's Management and AMC, its major
           tenant.
     *     As the designee of EPR's largest shareholder, Fred's interests are
           strongly aligned with the public shareholders.
     *     Fred has more than 40 successful years in the real estate industry
           and is by far the superior candidate.
 
     If you carefully read our proxy soliciting material and the proxy
 soliciting material of EPR's Management, you will quickly realize that EPR has
 failed to adequately respond to our criticisms of the Company and EPR was
 disingenuous in any responses provided.  Further, EPR's few reasons for
 opposing Fred Gould were transparent and had nothing to do with the corporate
 governance of EPR.
 
     WHY ARE THEY SO FEARFUL OF HAVING FRED GOULD ELECTED?
     All shareholders will benefit from a strong, knowledgeable Trustee who is
 totally independent of EPR's management and AMC, not just superficially
 independent as is the case with management's designee.
 
     VOTE FOR FRED GOULD.
 
     Sincerely,
     BRT REALTY TRUST
 
     Fredric H. Gould
     Chairman of the Board
