Premiere 6 Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Premier 6 opened in 1967. It was a single screen when it opened called the Martin Theatre. It was twinned in 1973 and and renamed the Martin Twin. It was divided again in 1982 and 1986 making it a six screen.

Carmike took over the operations of the the theatre in 1985 and after the last two screens were added it became the Carmike 6. It was located in the Jackson Heights Shopping Center. Carmike closed the theatre in 2000. It was reopened as an independent in 2001 and renamed the Premier 6, and remains in operation today.

Here are night photos from January 2007 of the Premiere Theatre: 1, 2, 3. The theatre appears to be huge. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get any interior shots and these night shots don’t really show much.

Here is a 2010 view of the Premiere 6.

The shopping center it is in took a direct hit from a small tornado around March 2009. The front looks considerably different from Jack’s pictures, which were taken three years earlier.

Many area residents were delighted that it reopened. This theater is locally owned. The picture and sound are good, the concession prices are reasonable by comparison to the nearby multiplexes, and they show 3 or fewer trailers and no unrelated ads before they start the feature! This is a fave, despite it’s plain appearance!

Does anyone know how this theatre was reconfigured from a single screen into six screen? Did it have a balcony?

@JackCoursey The original single screen was twinned in 1973 (the current 2 & 3).

Two screens (the current 1 & 6) were added to opposite sides of the lobby in 1982.

After Carmike took over, the current 4 & 5 were added to the side of the building behind 3 & 6 in 1986.
