The Carmike Cinema 7 opened on December 15, 1989 on a 25-year lease. The $2 million theatre had 1,300 seats with the largest auditorium holding 300 patrons. Kerasotes Theatre Circuit acquired the underperforming location turning it into a sub-run discount theater in 1992 called Kerasotes Dollar Cinema.

In the summer of 1996, Kerasotes changed the theater back to first-run and calling it the Cinema 7. The theater closed briefly to change to all-stadium seating as Kerasotes changed its name to the ShowPlace 7 Theatres relaunching on June 16, 2000. AMC acquired Kerasotes changing its name to the AMC Showplace 7. The theatre lapsed into weekend-only operation in 2014 before closing on November 30, 2014.

So Kerasotes got this from Goodrich not from Carmike? Any idea when Goodrich got it from Carmike then?

Mistake on my part, It was the Muncie mall cinemas that Kerasotes grabbed from Goodrich. Kerasotes got its Muncie monopoly on that May 15th, 1992 transaction.
