Carmike Cinema 6

Viewing: Photo | Street View

At the time of its opening on October 14, 1983, the Cinema 6 became the first theatre in Jacksonville with more then four screens under Charlotte based Stewart and Everett. In fact, the Cinema 6 was nearly identical in design and concept as the Cinema 6 in Wilmington, the Havelock Cinema 4 (now Carmike Cinema 6 in Havelock), the Lexington Cinema 4 (now Lexington Cinema 8) and the Aberdeen Cinema 4 in Southern Pines. The Cinema 6 in Jacksonville was one of the last theaters built by Stewart & Everett. The Iwo Jima Theatre and the Cinema Drive-In closed around the same time as the Cinema 6 opened, leaving Jacksonville without either a downtown or drive-in by 1983.

Carmike acquired this theatre in 1986 as part of its takeover of Stewart & Everett (which also owned and operated the Brynn Marr, the Center and Northwoods Theatres.

Cinema 6 was Jacksonville’s largest, highest-grade multiplex until 1989 when the Carmike Cinema 7 opened. It remained a first-run house until closing in 2003 (putting the Center, the Brynn Marr and the Northwoods Theatres out of business, in which Carmike made the Brynn Marr into a second run discount house) when Carmike opened a 16-screen multiplex theatre near Jacksonville Mall. This theater has since been demolished and was replaced by a Home Depot where the cinema once stood.

Correction to above post: Cinema 6 replaced the Iwo Jima Theatre (downtown) and the Cinema Drive-In, not the Iwo Jima Drive-In (no drive-in in Jacksonville to my knowledge was called Iwo Jima).
