Carmike Cinema 4

The Blaine Twin Cinemas opened on October 9, 1969 with Dick Van Dyke in “Some Kind of a Nut” & Gregory Peck in “MacKenna’s Gold”. On May 9, 1990 tow more screens were added. Closed in 2002, probably due to competition from a nearby seven and twelve-plex (the seven-plex owned by Carmike).

Actually the 7 plex (The Williamsburg Crossing Theater) was also owned by Carmike and has closed. Now there is only thing left is the twelve-plex

Going by the ad posted for this theater, it should have an AKA Blane Cinema 1 & 2. This theater was most likely opened before 1975, when Martin bought and renamed the theater after themselves.
