Carmike Cinemas President and Chief Executive Officer David Passman stated, “Carmike continues actively expanding our growing circuit, on our way to 300 theatres and 3,000 screens through selective acquisitions and the addition of multiple new-build theatres in promising locations like Winchester, across ‘Hometown America.’

“We’re providing the ultimate entertainment experience that features large format digital with bigger screens, bigger and better sound, and the finest in-theatre seating for cutting-edge presentation and the definitive enjoyment of our audiences. Furthermore, with the opening of our newest location, the Winchester area joins a select and growing list of communities across the nation offering Carmike theatregoers the exciting “BIGD” format.”

The new facility is equipped with auditoriums featuring state-of-the-art stadium style seating, with comfortable high back luxury chairs, retractable armrests and convenient cup holders.
