These theaters are located on the U.S. Army Post, Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia. This post has been around since 1918 and is home to the Army Basic Combat Training & Advanced Individual Training and also Airborne (Parachutintg) School. The 182,00 acre post has about 120,000 active duty soliders.

THIS IS THE FIRST AND AS OF 8/19/10 ONLY U.S. ARMY OR AIR FORCE MILITARY INSTALLATION TO HAVE A PRIVATE MULIPLEX OPERATED ON ONE OF IT’S INSTALLATIONS!

Normally the U.S. Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES), Reel Time Theaters operates single screen theaters on it’s installations.

This theater is in Building 1687, cost 2.7 million to build, and was built and is run by Carmike Theaters Inc. which happens to be headquartered right next door in Columbus, Georgia. It opened at 14:30(2:30pm) on December 6, 1996. It is open Monday-Friday 17:45(5:45pm)-21:00(9:00pm), Soliders work during the day. Saturday & Sunday 11:00-22:00(10:00pm). Because it is still "run" by AAFES "PROPER IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED". I would guess "THE NATIONAL ANTHEM" is played before all flicks just like at all other military theaters. The highest priced ticket is $7.50, much cheaper then for first run theaters in town. Any profits that are made go into the Soliders Welfare and Recreation Funds

Does anyone know about Carmike and Military Services, Inc.?

PLEASE CHANGE ADDRESS BACK TO:

INGERSOLL STREET & BURR STREET

Chuck1231 and everyone else, I always check out an address before I add a theater. I knew about the 7290 address and tried it out. It puts the red dot on the Google Map at Ingersoll Street and Marchant Street, two blocks from the theater, that’s why I didn’t use it. The cross streets I use put it about as close as it is possible to get to the theater. This is what is most helpful to the folks checking out the theater on CT.

I WOULD SUGGEST TO EVERYONE THAT THEY CHECK OUT AN ADDRESS ON GOOGLE MAP BEFORE THEY ADD IT ON CT, TO SEE IF IT WORKS. SAD TO SAY, SOMETIMES CROSS STREETS WORK BETTER THAN NUMBERS?

Is proof-reading a lost art?

Chuck1231; I guess we will not agree on this. To me, the entire idea of the Google Map is to help the person from say Oshkosh, Wisconsin who will never ever actually physically go to the theater location, be able as best as posible, see that theater site from the air. They really don’t care about how the address is listed, just so the red dot is as close to the theater as possible, not a few blocks away.

Sometimes the address leads it to to the right spot, but sometimes to different states or parts of the world which isn’t helpful to anyone. I think the idea is to figure out, if posible, what Google needs to get as close to the right spot as possible. The other option is to not have the map at all.

MR. CINERAMA; “Is proof-reading a lost art?” If your talking about my “masterpiece”, did you read the first comment, I really messed up, I even put down Chief Street as my name I must have been really tired? Lets see if your more forgiving when I add a theater you went to at an Army Post in Germany.

On the Google Map the theater is below the red dot in the block boardered by Ingersoll, Burr, Gillespie and Gaudette Streets.

Chuck1231; Perhaps Bing is better, but folks aren’t going to go to Bing. Perhaps you could suggest to the Gods at CT that they change everything over to Bing?

Wonder how long it will be before Carmike closes this one.I still say most of the young Fighting men and women when are off duty are not going to this ten plex,but instead the “tenPlex” in town,just to get away.

Mike The Pessimist; It’s been open for 14 years. It didn’t close in 2000 when Carmike went through bankruptcy. It must be a pretty good idea cause the U.S. Army & Air Force Exchange Service is having another private theater company build another 10 screen, 1,712 seat, at another U.S. Army Post that is due to open this fall.
