January 28, 2014

Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing On January 28, 2014 , Hollywood Media Corp. ("Company") announced that on January 24, 2014 its board of directors determined that voluntarily delisting the Company's common stock from the Nasdaq and voluntarily deregistering the common stock from the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended ("Exchange Act"), are in the best interests of the Company. The Company is eligible to deregister its stock because it has fewer than 300 stockholders of record. Accordingly, today the Company notified Nasdaq of its intent to file on February 7, 2014 a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), voluntarily delisting the Company's common stock from Nasdaq and deregistering the Company's common stock from Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. The Company expects that the delisting will take effect on February 17, 2014 , and at that time the Company's shares will no longer be traded on the Nasdaq. The Company also intends to file on February 17 , 2014a Form 15 with the SEC , deregistering the Company's common stock under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act and suspending the Company's reporting obligations under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. Immediately upon the filing of the Form 15, the Company will no longer be obligated to file certain Exchange Act reports with the SEC . Following such voluntary delisting and deregistering, the Company's board of directors anticipates that the Company's common stock will trade on the OTC Markets - OTC Pink Marketplace , although there can be no assurances that any trading market for the Company's common stock will exist, and the liquidity of such trading market may be very limited. A copy of the press release, dated January 28, 2014 , issued by the Company to announce the delisting and deregistering of the Company's common stock, is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference. ***************************** Note on Forward-Looking Statements Statements in this press release may be "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of federal securities laws.
