“Date with hubby”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Went for the second time to the new theatres at the Mall. Very nice. Food is really pricey, more so than the other theatre in town. Theatres have sound really loud, but otherwise they are very nice.

“Much improved”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Love the new cinemas and hope people will care for them. Would have liked the service at the seat but you can't have everything. The purchase line needs to be improved--people waiting out the door is no fun in the rain.

“Much needed theater”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The new Carmike Cinemas is located at Apple Blossom Mall. It is a way overdue addition to the town. We avoided the lines and bought our movie tickets through fandango.com, which was good because the lines were very long when we arrived. The theater is clean and obviously new. It has stadium seating and large (fake) leather chairs that recline/rock. There was plenty of leg room, even for a 6 ft 2in person. My only two negatives to the theater are that it was way too warm in the movie itself and the bathrooms do not accommodate the amount of people that need to use them. Otherwise, I was thoroughly impressed with the new Winchester addition.

“Very nice surprise!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

I didn't expect this place to be that nice, even after reading about the total revamping of the place. Even the smallest theaters in this consolidated group is not that small at all! Sound was crisp, stadium seating about the most comfortable you'll find. This location also boasts the "big d" (I haven't experienced this yet but can't wait for when I do) which is:

“The BigD –Large Format Digital Experience features Bigger Screens, Bigger Sound and Bigger, more Luxurious Seats providing the Ultimate Entertainment Experience”, said David Passman, Carmike’s President and CEO. The auditorium will include a wall to wall giant screen measuring 78 feet wide and 35 feet tall, custom luxury seating, the latest in 7.1 surround sound and DIGITAL projection for both 2D and 3D features."

I've seen (and heard offline) from a couple of folks complaining about the concession stand being the same as the box office and although I've not had a problem due to the times that I've been here so far, I would think that Carmike will address this soon.

Another cool sighting was the "Control Room", open for viewing to the public. See picture. :)

The seats were fantastic. The place was clean. The lobby was large, bright and airy. The movie sound was excellent. We will be coming back
