SECOND SUPPLEMENT TO FIRST AND FINAL FEE APPLICATION OF THE LAW OFFICES OF FRANK J. WRIGHT, PLLC, AS COUNSEL TO THE DEBTORS, FOR ALLOWANCE OF COMPENSATION AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES FOR THE PERIOD OF OCTOBER 23, 2020 THROUGH APRIL 30, 2021 The Law Offices of Frank J. Wright (“FJW”), as Counsel to the Studio Movie Grill Holdings, Inc. and its affiliates, the above-captioned debtors and debtors in possession (collectively, the “Debtors”), pursuant to Section 330 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), Rule 2016(a) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the “Bankruptcy Rules”), and Rule 2016-1 of the Local Bankruptcy Rules of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas (the “Local Rules”), hereby submits its Second Supplement (the “Second Supplement”) to its First and Final Fee Application [Dkt. No. 947] (the “Application”). In support of this Supplement, FJW respectfully states as follows: 1. On May 28, 2021, FJW submitted its Application seeking allowance of compensation for professional services provided in the amount of $1,554,410.00 and reimbursement of expenses in the amount of $2,796.43 that FJW incurred for the period of October 23, 2020 through April 30, 2021 and fees of $10,000.00 for preparation and presentation of this Application as well as estimated fees of $25,000.00 for the month of May 2021, which FJW stated would be detailed in a supplement to the Application prior to the hearing. 2. On June 22, 2021, FJW filed its Supplement to First and Final Fee Application of the Law Offices of Frank J. Wright, PLLC, as Counsel to the Debtors, for Allowance of Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses for the Period of October 23, 2020 through May 31, 2021 [Dkt. No. 966] (the “First Supplement”), which provided for the removal of certain duplicate time entries and amended certain other time entries thereby adjusting FJW’s requested allowance of compensation for professional services to the amount of $1,552,270.00 for the period of October 23, 2020 through April 30, 2021.

3. This Second Supplement serves to (i) withdraw FJW’s request for an order allowing FJW an additional $25,000.00 for estimated fees for May 2021; and (ii) request allowance for FJW to retain the entirety of its Retainer for the converted cases and other continuing matters in this case. 4. First, FJW hereby withdraws its request for the allowance of additional fees for May 2021. Pursuant to Article II(A)(2)(a) of the Debtors’ confirmed Fourth Amended Joint Plan or Reorganization for Studio Movie Grill Holdings, LLC and Jointly Administered Debtors [Dkt. No. 869] (the “Plan”), only professional fees incurred during the period from the Petition Date through the Effective Date are required to be included in final requests for compensation or reimbursement. Such compensation does not require further court approval. For such reasons and without in any manner waiving its entitlement to compensation outside this forum for such services, FJW hereby withdraws its request for court approval of its May 2021 fees. In accordance therewith, the term “Application Period” shall mean hereafter October 23, 2021 through April 30, 2021 for the purposes of the Application, as supplemented. 5. Second, FJW presently holds a prepetition retainer in the amount of $250,000.00 (the “Retainer”), which it was planning to reduce based on the only continuing work being the converted cases. However, there are additional matters for the Reorganized Debtors that FJW will now be required to handle so FJW requests that it be authorized to retain the entirety of the Retainer for the purposes of covering fees and expenses incurred in connection with the ongoing matters in this case and in connection with the five Debtor cases which pursuant to the Plan were converted to Chapter 7 cases. FJW submits that its retention of this Retainer will serve the interests of the Reorganized Debtors and aid in the continued administration of ongoing matters. 6. After accounting for the change to the Retainer2 drawn down, the withdrawal of the request for estimated May 2021 fees, and the $1,243,528.00 in fees and $2,796.43 in expenses paid 2 All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them by the Application.

pursuant to its Employment Order, FJW now seeks payment of the outstanding balance of $320,882.003 in fees from the Professional Fee Escrow Account, as provided for by the Plan. WHEREFORE, FJW respectfully requests this Court enter an order (i) awarding final compensation to FJW of $1,552,270.00 for services rendered to the Debtors during the Application Period; (ii) allowing and approving reimbursement to FJW of $2,796.43 in expenses incurred in connection with services rendered for the Debtors during the Application Period; (iii) allowing FJW an additional $10,000 for preparation and presentation of this Application; (iv) permitting FJW to retain the entirety of its $250,000 of its Retainer for the converted cases and ongoing matters; (iv) after accounting for amounts already paid, directing the Debtors to pay FJW the balance of $320,882.00 in fees from the professional fee escrow account; and (v) granting FJW such other and further relief as may be just and proper. DATED: June 24, 2021 Respectfully submitted, LAW OFFICES OF FRANK J. WRIGHT, PLLC By: /s/ Frank J. Wright Frank J. Wright Texas Bar No. 22028800 Jeffery M. Veteto Texas Bar No. 24098548 Jay A.
