Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today announced the closing of its previously announced purchase of three state-of-the-art digital entertainment complexes totaling 52 screens in Louisville, KY (Stonybrook 20), Voorhees, NJ (Ritz Center 16) and Hickory Creek, TX (Hickory Creek 16) from Cinemark USA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark Holdings, Inc.

This transaction also added 36 screens to the Company’s long-term pre-show advertising arrangement with Screenvision.

Carmike Cinemas President and Chief Executive Officer David Passman said, “We are pleased to add these quality assets to our growing circuit. This transaction further underscores our commitment to increasing theatre and screen count through accretive acquisitions.”
