Martin Theatres opened the Martin Twin in 1972, in the Green Village Shopping Center. The theatre has since been expanded to nine screens and is currently part of the Carmike circuit.

Actually, they might have added the largest auditorium (seen to the right in the above photos)AFTER the building housing the twins was first constructed in 72. The first film that I remember seeing in the large auditorium was “Star Wars” in 1977, and “Close Encounters” (1977). “Earthquake” (1974) was definitely in one of the twins in the main building, as was “The Towering Inferno” (1974).

Yep, we had Sensurround. I did check with some still-locals, and it was indeed built as a twin, with the larger auditorium constructed on the side, around 76/77.
