Carmike 6 closes in Mt. Lebanon
MT. LEBANON, PA — The Carmike Galleria 6 will be closed as of June 17. The impending closure will be the latest in a series of Pittsburgh area closings. The cinema opened twenty-one years ago.
The theater, which welcomed its first paying customers on June 16, 1989, will go dark June 17. No word yet on what will occupy its sprawling space on the upper level.
Dale Hurst, director of marketing for Carmike, today cited dwindling business and said the other Pittsburgh locations would not be affected. “We try everything we can to maintain a top-notch operation,” he said by phone from Georgia, calling this and other closures “always the last, last, last resort.”
