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).
This drive-in most likely closed in 1969,as ABC/Wilby-Kincey opened the Cardinal indoor cinema a couple of blocks east of this location that year (the coupon pictured above indicates the Marine Drive-In as an ABC theatre; Wilby-Kincey was at that time the ABC subsidiary operating their North Carolina theatres). The Marine Drive-In was long gone by 1975, as Sanders Ford has been on that site since at least then.
The Parkhill Cinema 3 is and was always an independent exhibitor; neither Stewart-Everett nor Carmike Cinemas ever owned this theater. The Oakwood Twin Theatre in Rocky Mount was the only S&E or Carmike venue in Edgecombe County.
Back in early January 2015 there were rumors that the Carmike 12 would be closed for renovations making it into a dine-in cinema. The rumors, first reported by a local TV station, turned out to be false. There are currently no plans for any major renovations to the Carmike 12; it will continue to operate as usual. Regal’s Greenville Grande 14 has nothing to fear from this multiplex, as they (Regal) have the newer and better facilities.
This ad is from the now-demolished Westgate Cinema IV in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The Regal Westgate Mall Cinema 8 had not been built yet in 1985 (Regal Cinemas itself did not exist back then, either).
