Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ:CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today announced that guests at its Carmike 15 entertainment complex (5555 Whittlesey Boulevard in Columbus, GA) will have the opportunity to choose among the most immersive premium in-theatre experiences available on the market when its ‘BigD’ premium large format (PLF) auditorium reopens this coming Friday, May 2. The Carmike 15 BigD will now feature the all new Auro 11.1 by Barco cinema sound system as well as a state-of-the-art Christie Brilliant 3-D flash digital projection system. In addition to the BigD opening, an aggregate of 38 seats in two auditoriums has been outfitted with the D-BOX cutting-edge motion technology to also debut Friday.

Carmike Cinemas is on the forefront of the best technologies offering patrons a truly superior movie going experience. The Carmike 15 is no exception as the location allows patrons to participate in the best of cinema technology available by way of BigD, IMAX, Auro 11.1 by Barco, and D-BOX all in one destination.

The Carmike 15’s BigD will feature the highly anticipated premiere of Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 3-D during its opening weekend. BigD cinemagoers will experience the action-packed movie in the highly anticipated Auro 11.1 by Barco sound. The most natural immersive sound generated experience possible, Auro 11.1 by Barco is a three-layered 52 speaker configuration (surround, height and overhead) that projects sounds from their relative point of origin to deliver immersive sound that submerges guests in the experience. For example, when a plane flies overhead, the sound is heard roaring above the guest. Similarly, when a thunderstorm erupts, the intense sound from above places the viewer in the feature.

Other guests of the Carmike 15 will have access to the unique D-BOX technology, one of the best experiences in cinema today. Patrons of D-BOX are not merely watching a movie; they are virtually placed in the feature through synchronized movements of the seat with the action of the film. The D-BOX experience is a unique motion technology, providing automated seat activation in-tune with the action on the big screen. Once again, Carmike Cinemas is taking the movie going experience to a higher level of performance while increasing the guest’s expectations.
