Hello Mike! Are you still there I’m researching a novel set in 2012 Albany, G and need to know what year this theater closed and the Carmike 16 opened? Can you help with that? Thanks!…or anyone else?

The center portion of this house looks a lot like the old Georgia Cinerama, I suspect that was the original twin portion. I doubt anybody built more theaters using the same basic plans as Martin did!
