Carmike Cinemas Announces The Grand Opening Of The Carmike 12 In Decatur, Alabama Including The Critically Acclaimed Signature “BIGD” Ultimate Entertainment Experience

Stocks in this article: CKEC

The  “BIGD” auditorium includes a wall-to-wall screen measuring 60 feet wide and nearly three stories tall, the latest in surround sound and Digital projection of both 2-D and 3-D features. In technical terms, Carmike’s “BIGD” DIGITAL experience is powered by a Christie Brilliant 3-D flash projector. The end result is a light output of 30,000 lumens, creating a picture quality with noticeably higher resolution than HD.

To further enhance the experience, the custom QSC DIGITAL audio system is tuned to a 7.1 speaker array with 16 channels and the ability to upgrade to 11.1, a revolution in surround sound technology with DIGITAL audio processing supported by quad-amplified, 4-way speakers and 21-inch subwoofers. The new, expanded configuration at the Carmike 12 promises a new gold standard in unparalleled picture clarity and deep resonating DIGITAL sound.

“We are very pleased with the tremendous, positive response we have received from moviegoers about their enhanced movie enjoyment while seeing films in our “BIGD” ultimate movie going experience and have plans to open more entertainment complexes featuring “BIGD” auditoriums in 2013. Carmike Cinemas’ entertainment complexes currently under construction include Sandestin, FL, Champaign, IL, Winchester, VA, Hickory, NC and Colorado Springs, CO. We also have plans underway for new entertainment complexes in Opelika, AL, Oak Grove, KY, El Paso, TX, Montgomery, AL and Snellville, GA. Whether it is a movie, concert, sporting event, motivational speaker or church service, Carmike guests will find “ BIGD” placing them at the heart of the event,” notes Terrell Mayton, Carmike’s Director of Marketing.
