The Berkeley Cinema Four opened on May 20, 1977 as a twin theatre, and the first multi-screen theatre in Goldsboro under Stewart and Everett Theatres. By Christmas of 1980 it had become a three-scree cinema and was renamed Berkeley 1-2-3. By April 15, 1983 it expanded to four screens and was renamed Berkeley Cinema Four, where the 300-seat auditoriums were flanked by two 150-seat auditoriums. By 1986, Stewart and Everett sold their chain to Carmike, and the Berkeley Cinema Four along with it. It was also around this time that the Berkeley Cinema Four was facing competition from the Litchfield Cinema 4, which was not too far away from the Berkeley Mall.
In the late-1990’s, all the seating was replaced with new cupholder seating, and DTS was added to two of the four screens. The Berkeley Cinema Four was running strong, out-performing most megaplexes in terms of sales, that is until Premiere Theatres built a huge twelve-screen on the other side of town. It was newer and flashier, not to mention state-of-the-art, so the people flocked there, and the Berkeley Cinema Four became a second run theatre under Carmike.
The staff were fighting to keep this theatre open, and were slowly winning the war against the megaplexes. Sadly, the Berkley Cinema Four was closed by Carmike Cinemas in November 2007.
