This theatre was also known as the Hickory Hollow Cinema as well as the Bell Road Cinema.

No,

The Mall cinemas were 1,2,3

Bell Road was a detached theatre that was 4,5,6.

It was the district office for Consolidated Theatres before Carmike bought them out.

The Land that hickory 8 sits on, is where Bell Road Cinemas used to be. They demolished a 3 screen, and built an 8 screen on the same spot.

Carmike closed 1-2-3 when they opened Hickory 8 where the Bell Road Cinemas (4-5-6) used to be. I worked at the Bell Rd in the late 70’s/early 80’s. Hickory Hollow Mall was a new mall that opened in 1978…. it was the place to go in the 70’s and 80’s. Carmike also built a 6-plex across Bell Rd (Bell Forge)to compete with Consolidated’s 6 screens. They eventually expanded it to 10 screens. All of these theatres are closed now, except for Hickory 8, which is now a discount theatre, a buck fifty. Malco is now the area theatre to go to down in Smyrna, south of Antioch. They have 14 screens, all stadium and digital projection.

I think I have some of the exterior of Bell Rd 4-5-6, but from what I recall, there are people in them. These are from April or May of 1982. I also have some from Cinema South from the ‘80’s as well. Will try to locate them.
