This was initially a Martin quad cinema that was later acquired by Carmike and expanded into a twelve screen multiplex.

So you’re telling me that somewhere inside the building pictured below is an old Martin quad?

A gentelman by the name of Leon Hurst operated the Highland Cineams and Varsity Cinemas in Cookeville. When I knew of him, both were twin screen theatres. When Leon retired in the mid-1980’s, his family didn’t want to take over the businesses, so he sold the theatres to Consolidated Theatres out of Charlotte NC. Consolidated added two screens to the Highland Twin, making it the quad that is talked about above. Carmike acquired these theatres when Consolidated sold a bulk of their locations to them. I guess Carmike replaced the quad with the 12 screens. I’m sure they didn’t keep the Varsity open after this.

I don’t think Martin Theatres had these theatres, unless Leon bought them from them, but I think Leon was a theatre operator for a few decades, and was very active with NATO of Tennessee.

Anyone have any other knowlege about this?
