Cinema 7 is an older theater that tries its hardest, over 30 years old. In 2009, it is getting new seats and a much needed refresh. It was closed by Carmike on December 9, 2016. An independent operator Golden Ticket Cinemas took it over in late-2016 and it reopened February 10, 2017.

The Washington Square Mall Cinema 1 & 2 was opened in 1976 by Stewart & Everett Theatres. S&E later expanded it to three screens (Washington Square Mall Cinema 1-2-3) and subsequently shuttered the co-owned Turnage Theater. Carmike Cinemas acquired Stewart & Everett in 1986 and renamed this location Cinema Triple (along with the former S&E triplexes in New Bern and Morehead City). Carmike later added four screens to the three built by S&E and renamed the theater Cinema 7. Since the Turnage Theater closed as a movie theater in the late 1970s the Washington Square Mall Cinema 1-2-3/Cinema Triple/Cinema 7 has been Beaufort County’s sole full-time cinema.

“Have they shown "Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory” or “Charlie and the chocolate factory” there?"

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.
