Stocks in this article: CKEC

Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ:CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today announced the further expansion of its presence in Fayetteville, NC with the new Patriot 14, which is being constructed at 4761 Lake Valley Drive. The theatre is slated for a Grand Opening celebration late fall of 2014.

Carmike’s guests from the region, which includes the nearby US Army Fort Bragg military base, will soon be able to enjoy the world’s most immersive cinematic experience when the multiplex opens with the inclusion of an IMAX auditorium, which will allow patrons to enjoy the biggest blockbusters like never before. IMAX’s cutting-edge projection system, which delivers crystal-clear images, combined with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a state-of-the-art environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Carmike’s premier location will be furnished with 14 screens and the theatre will have a total seating capacity for more than 3,100 guests. All auditoriums will feature stadium seating, comfortable high-back rocking luxury seats, retractable armrests and convenient cup holders. The Patriot 14 will also contain large, wall-to-wall screens, DLP digital projection and digital sound in all auditoriums.

The facility’s upscale lobby will contain multiple concession areas featuring self-serve Coca-Cola Freestyle drink centers, which pour more than 100 customized fountain drink varieties. One-stop ticketing will be included in the lobby area so cinemagoers can escape the elements and purchase tickets and their favorite concessions in the same, fast-moving indoor line and quickly move to their comfortable seats. The new complex also provides special services for visually and hearing-impaired patrons.

Carmike President and CEO David Passman: “Carmike is very pleased to further increase our presence in Fayetteville, which has proven to be a very strong market for us. We are excited to bring this exceptional new entertainment complex to the community and provide our valued guests with the optimum in cinema-going entertainment. The Patriot 14 will feature large format digital presentation, bigger screens, better sound and plush stadium seating for the definitive enjoyment of all audiences.
