This was one of the theatres that CARMIKE abandoned and left to rot when it closed in 2002 and was demolished the following year.
This was one of the theatres that showed the “X” rated “YOU SO CRAZY”(Martin Lawrence’s stand-up comedy film) as a exclusive area engagement.
That was one of the theatres CARMIKE abandoned and left for dead when it close in 2001. When it closed,the theatre was completely guttered. So Sad.
This was one of the multiplexes that CARMIKE abandoned and left for dead when it closed in 2003. Reason why is no one knew where exactly the theatre was located not to mention even existed for that manner since the cinema was located on the other side of Bastion Lane at Tower Merchants right off the Traywick Road near the Raleigh Beltline in East Raleigh.
