Pottstown, PA: Carmike Cinemas Announces November 17, 2011 Grand Opening of 12-Screen Theater in Upland Square Shopping Center

Posted on Thursday, November 17th, 2011 4:59 PM by Scott Jentsch

Carmike Cinemas logoCarmike Cinemas announced this week that the Grand Opening of its newest location in Pottstown, Pennsylvania will take place on Thursday, November 17, 2011.

The new theater will be part of the Upland Square Shopping Center near Route 100 and Upland Square Drive, and was first announced in January. At the time, the theater was expected to open by the end of 2011, so they are actually ahead of schedule.

In addition to eleven traditionally-sized screens, the new theater will feature one of Carmike's "BigD" auditoriums, which has a larger screen, an upgraded sound system, and better seating:

"We're providing the ultimate entertainment experience that centerpieces large format Digital with bigger screens, bigger and better sound, and the finest in-theater seating for cutting edge presentation and the definitive enjoyment of our audiences," notes David Passman, Carmike's President and CEO.

All twelve auditoriums will be equipped with Digital Cinema Projection systems, with the BigD auditorium also capable of 3D presentations (the press release is unclear about 3D capability in the other auditoriums). The BigD screen measures 62' wide by "nearly three stories" high.

Carmike Cinemas has 235 locations in 36 states and focuses their attention on small and mid-sized communities.

I loved the new theater in Pottsgrove, however, having no ticket only lines is aggravating and I have spoken to clients in line who do not like it either. I feel that this feature needs to be revised. Not all who go to the movies can afford the expensive drinks and popcorn.
