Carmike Galleria 6 in Mt. Lebanon to remain open
MT. LEBANON, PA — The previously announced closing perhaps provided some incentive, because Carmike has announced that it has reached a new agreement with the management of the Galleria Mall, and the Carmike 6 shall remain open.
The location welcomed its first paying customers on June 16, 1989, and was scheduled to close after June 17. Its departure would have removed an anchor from the Mt. Lebanon mix of restaurants and shops.
Retrofitting the theater for other tenants would have presented a challenge had Carmike removed its equipment. New occupants would have faced a large space but one that featured sloped floors, high ceilings and no windows to accommodate the theaters.
