First opened on August 3, 1972 as a twin cinema(Dunes 1 & 2) when it was owned and operated under Charlotte-based Stewart and Everett Theatres. On June 11, 1976 the theatre went through another transition when it added on a third screen during construction (by taking the original auditorium in screen one by split it down the middle and keeping the second auditorium intact) making a triplex cinema(Dunes 1-2-3).
On June 10, 1983, the second auditorium was also split down the middle as well, adding on a fourth auditorium making it a multiplex cinema (Dunes Cinema IV), which was still under operations with Stewart and Everett Theatres.
Carmike Cinemas acquired the Dunes Cinemas in 1986 until the Dunes closing in 1993.
In 1994, Carmike Cinemas built the Dunes Cinemas 8, opening on November 18, 1994, behind the old Dunes Cinema IV, which had closed the previous year. Carmike kept the Dunes 8 in operations for the next ten years until its closing of the theatre on June 17, 2004.
