Carmike and Cinemark both planning new cinemas in Sandusky
SANDUSKY, OH — Cinemark and Carmike currently each operate a multiplex in Sandusky, and both plan to replace their current theaters with new ones, increasing the total number of screens in this town on the shores of Lake Erie from eighteen to twenty-four.
Joe Bell, a spokesman for the Cafaro Co., said Tuesday the financing is in hand for the Cinemark theater and it will be built despite Carmike’s plans.
The new theaters will replace two older theaters, a 10-screen Cinemark theater at Walmart and an eight-screen Carmike theater at the mall.
The planned upgrade means Sandusky is going from 18 screens to 24.
