Opened on February 20, 1976, the New Centre Cinemas was Wilmington’s first triplex theatre that was owned and operated under Charlotte based Stewart and Everett Theatres Corporation. At the time of its opening, Stewart & Everett basically had control of all the movie theatres in Wilmington (the Oleander Twin, Colony Theatre, Bailey Theatre and the Skyway Drive-In) with the exception of the Manor Downtown (which was under Eastern Federal Theatres).
The largest auditorium seated 515, the second auditorium seated 283 and the smallet auditorium seated 202, giving a total seating capacity of 1,008.
Stewart & Everett ran the New Centre Cinemas until 1986 when the chain was acquired by Carmike Cinemas. Carmike ran the operations of the New Centre Cinemas until its closing in 1995.
An auto showroom dealership now stands where the New Centre Cinemas once stood.
