BLUE RIDGE CINEMAS is the only Carmike discount house in operation that is East of Raleigh. There are NO discount houses in other parts of Eastern North Carolina that are under Carmike Cinemas.

BLUE RIDGE CINEMAS opened as Raleigh’s first multiplex discount theatre under Carmike Cinemas on December 10,1993 as a 10-screener with its largest auditorium having full THX-Dobly sound.

It replaced from day one the 99-cent discount theaters in the greater Raleigh area (The Terrace Twin, The South Hills Twin, and the Falls Twin)…which the former two discount Carmike chains reopened under new management and ownership as the Colony Theatres 1 & 2(the former Terrace Twin),and the Raleighwood Cinema Grill at Falls Village(the former Falls Twin).

Opened as a 10 screener in 1993 and by mid-1996 added on four more screens where the admission went from 99 cents to $1.50.

Piecesoftheater is right; Blue Ridge Cinemas was second-run from day one. It replaced the old Terrace Twin, Falls Twin and South Hills Twin 99-cent theaters (the former two reopened under different owners as the Colony Twin and Raleighwood Cinema Grill, respectively). Carmike never charged first-run prices at the Blue Ridge Cinemas.

I helped set this theater up and worked there for 4 years. It opened in 1993 as a second run 10-screen with all seats at 99 cents. In 1996(I think), 4 screens were added and admission was $1.50.
