Located on Cinema Drive, just off Market Street, near the intersection of S. Kerr Avenue. Opened May 5, 1997 as the Carmike Cinema 12. Four more screens were added on for its grand re-opening December 25, 1999 as the Carmike Cinema 16, with full stadium seating and digital projection in all auditoriums. It is the only Carmike cinema that is operating serving the greater Wilmington area.

The front design of the building and entrance looks nearly identical to Carmike’s former Hillsboro Eight in Tampa. Looks like they’ve done a nice job with the renovations. Does this theatre have stadium seating? I didn’t see it mentioned in the article but hopefully it does. If not it’ll be hard to compete with other theatres within the same area that do. Today’s audiences favor theatres with stadium seating and will drive that extra mile bypassing theatres without it.

I think our seats at GCC were never that good.But really I could really care less about seats,our dollar theatre here has regulsr seats and they are just fine to me.And Anyways Carmike will probably CLOSE this location within a few years,they have a history of doing so.

Thanks smyjmy. At least the theatre stands a better chance of surviving than they would without these amenities.
