|Home: BigScreen Journal - Lexington, NC: Carmike Cinema 8 Closed|
The Carmike Cinema 8 - Lexington in Lexington, North Carolina closed May 10, 2012, according to an article in The Dispatch:
Thursday evening concluded the end of an era for Cinema 8, the Lexington theater owned by Carmike Cinemas. Friday morning offered residents an empty parking lot and only slightly explanatory sign as to why the only theater in Lexington is now closed after almost 30 years.
Multiple attempts to obtain a comment from a spokesman for Carmike Cinemas were unsuccessful.
Click the Read link below to view the full article. According to the article, the theater was opened May 21, 1982 as a four-screen location. It was expanded to eight screens in 1986 and enjoyed quite a bit of success, but has declined in attendance over the past five or six years.
The theater's closure leaves Lexington without a movie theater. Moviegoers in the area will need to travel some distance to see movies on the big screen, as the closest theater is the Cinemark Tinseltown USA in Salisbury. There are ten theaters within 20 miles of Lexington, according to our records.
