Carmike Cinemas’ New State-Of-The-Art 6-Screen Mount Lebanon, PA Entertainment Complex, Featuring Premium Seating, Set For April 25 Debut

Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today announced that the Company is ready to re-open its newly redesigned 6-screen entertainment complex in Mount Lebanon, PA, which replaced its previous 1500 Washington Road location. Carmike’s Galleria 6 continues to be one of the anchor tenants in Pittsburgh’s premier upscale mall, The Galleria of Mt. Lebanon, located in the heart of the South Hills on Route 19, just 10 minutes south of downtown Pittsburgh. Construction commenced in early January and Carmike is holding a grand opening celebration April 25, ahead of schedule. Carmike expects to feature the new 20 th Century Fox release, The Other Woman – starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton – as well as other recently released, popular Hollywood titles during the Galleria 6’s opening weekend.

All auditoriums in this leading-edge entertainment complex have been completely remodeled and will feature new, premium stadium terrace seating, complete with oversized, high-back, plush rocking luxury seats with retractable armrests and convenient cup holders. The Galleria 6 will also contain large, wall-to-wall screens, and new state-of-the-art DLP digital projection and digital sound in all auditoriums.

The facility’s upscale lobby is being upgraded to contain multiple concession areas featuring Coca-Cola Freestyle drink centers, which pour more than 100 customized fountain drink varieties. One-stop ticketing will also be included in the lobby area so cinemagoers may purchase their tickets and 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.

“We are very excited to bring this exceptional entertainment complex to the Mount Lebanon / suburban Pittsburgh community,” stated David Passman, Carmike Cinemas President and Chief Executive Officer. “The new Galleria 6 will be outfitted with luxury stadium seating, the latest equipment for enhanced digital presentation, as well as bigger screens and better sound for the definitive enjoyment of our audiences. Furthermore, the facility’s upscale design, expanded concessions menu and restructured lobby with one-stop ticketing are additional customer-friendly features. With these many enhancements comes greater service and renewed commitment to bringing our valued guests from across the region the ultimate in cinema-going entertainment.”
