Twin-screen theater operated by Carmike Cinemas; opened as a twin circa 1987.
AMC just announced on their website that the Wynnsong 12 in Winston-Salem will receive a new name in April 2017: AMC Hanes 12.
AMC just announced on their website the new name for the Carmike 10 in Winston-Salem: AMC Classic Winston-Salem 10. The name change is to take effect in April 2017
From the AMC website: AMC has announced that the Carmike 12 in Greenville, NC, will be rebranded as the AMC Fire Tower 12 as of April 2017 (no exact date given). This name change coincides with both the renovation of this theater and a reorganization of AMC’s brand structure. The Carmike and Loews banners will disappear (along with any other non-AMC brands), with three AMC brands being used instead: AMC, for the newer, larger multiplexes; AMC Dine-In, for the restaurant-service locations; and AMC Classic, for older, smaller theaters (such as older Carmike locations in small towns).
Davidcoppock: “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka) most likely played at the Turnage Theatre downtown, as the Mall Cinemas did not open until 1976. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (Johnny Depp as Wonka)most likely did play at this theatre under Carmike Cinemas.
This theater has reopened on February 10, 2017 under the name of Golden Ticket Cinema 7.
No longer listed on Carmike’s website, nor listed on AMC’s list of Carmike locations (the Carmike 10 in Winston-Salem is not listed on either site as well). Has another operator acquired either the Carmike 10 W-S or the Wynnsong 12 W-S?
No longer listed on Carmike’s website. Closed or sold?
Scott Neff: You are probably correct about the closing date of the Fayetteville Carmike 12. This theatre was on neither Carmike’s nor AMC’s websites. The last post on this theater’s page before mine last night was from 2013.
Now owned by AMC; will continue to operate under the Carmike 12 banner for the immediate future (may possibly rebrand to AMC later on). Bargain Tuesdays and the popcorn bucket refills will continue throughout 2017.
According to Carmike’s website, this location is closed.
Now owned by AMC.
From WITN-TV 7: Carmike Cinemas has closed the Cinema 7 theatres as of today (December 9, 2016). Carmike is in talks with an independent cinema operator to take over operations of the Cinema 7 sometime in the near future.
The former Park Theatre is currently being renovated into a live performance venue, primarily for music concerts. It will be operated by the owners of Raleigh’s Lincoln Theatre.
Now operating as UEC Theatres 12; UEC website still shows the original name in a photo of the Goldsboro location but uses the new name in the theater’s showtimes and info page.
The former Colony Theatre and the adjacent storefront, which were combined into a single unit by Brody’s Department Store, are now occupied by the Uptown Brewing Company.
The enclosed mall attached to the MarketFair 15 cinema was demolished in 2014, redeveloped as an open-air shopping center.
This theater is now demolished.
The address for the Park Theatre should be listed as 1310 North Queen Street. It is currently vacant.
Demolition began today on the entire Carolina East Center, including the former Carolina East 4 Cinemas. A new shopping center will replace the entire complex; anchors are to be Hobby Lobby and an unnamed big-box retailer (most likely either a Publix or Harris Teeter grocery).
