         On April 8, 2002, Entertainment Properties Trust (the "registrant")
notified KPMG LLP ("KPMG") that KPMG has been engaged to audit the registrant's
financial statements for the 2002 fiscal year.

         The registrant's financial statements for the years ended December 31,
2001, 2000, 1999 and 1998 and the period ended December 31, 1997 were audited by
Ernst & Young LLP ("EY"). The change in auditors was approved by the
registrant's Audit Committee.

         EY's reports on the registrant's financial statements did not contain
an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were such reports qualified or
modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. During the
period covered by the financial statements and the subsequent interim period
preceding the end of EY's engagement, there have been no disagreements between
EY and the registrant, whether or not resolved, on any matter of accounting
principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or
procedure, which, if not resolved to EY's satisfaction, would have caused EY to
make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement(s) in connection with
its reports, nor have there been any reportable events as contemplated under
Item 304(a)(1)(v)(A)-(D) of Regulation S-K.

         The registrant did not consult with KPMG regarding the application of
accounting principles to a specific completed or contemplated transaction or the
type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the registrant's financial
statements, and no written or oral advice was provided by KPMG on any such issue
that was a factor considered by the registrant in reaching a decision as to any
accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue.

         The registrant has authorized EY to respond fully to any inquiries of
KPMG concerning any issue related to the registrant's accounting principles or
practices or financial reporting, or the registrant's financial statements or
EY's audits thereof or audit opinions thereon.

         The registrant has provided a copy of the disclosures in this report to
KPMG and offered KPMG the opportunity to furnish a letter to the Commission
contemplated by Item 304 (a)(2)(D) of Regulation S-K. KPMG has advised that it
does not intend to furnish such a letter to the Commission.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
