|Home: BigScreen Journal - Manitowoc, WI: 10-Screen Carmike Cinema to Open Summer 2014|
Carmike Cinemas announced this week that construction on a 10-screen movie theater in Manitowoc is progressing on schedule for a planned Summer 2014 opening.

The new theater will be located on the west side of Manitowoc, just east of I-43 between Viebahn Street and Calumet Avenue (Highway 151). Easy access to the freeway and supported by quite a bit of retail businesses and restaurants, the theater will enjoy its place as the largest theater in a 20+ mile radius. The closest theaters are the Lakeshore Cinema Cafe and the Strand Cinemas in Manitowoc, and the larger competition of Marcus Sheboygan Cinemas and Marcus Green Bay East are more than a half hour away.
See the map to the right for an overview of the area. The green arrow indicates the location of the new theater.
This location will be Carmike's first in eastern Wisconsin, but they do operate theaters in Eau Claire, La Crosse, and Marinette. The company operates more than 245 theaters around the country.
Featuring 10 screens and seating 1,700 customers at one time, the theater will have one of Carmike's big-screen concept "BigD" auditoriums. While the other nine auditoriums will have Digital Cinema Projection systems and stadium seating that has high-backed rocking seats, the BigD auditorium will have a larger screen (60' wide and almost 30' tall) and an upgraded sound system.
“We are very pleased with the tremendous, positive response we have received from moviegoers about their enhanced movie enjoyment while seeing films in our “BIGD” ultimate movie going experienceand have plans to open more entertainment complexes featuring “BIGD” auditoriums in 2013. Carmike Cinemas complexes currently under construction include Champaign, IL, Hickory, NC, Opelika, AL and Colorado Springs, CO. We also have plans underway for new entertainment complexes in Oak Grove, KY and Montgomery, AL. Whether it is a movie, concert, sporting event, motivational speaker or church service, Carmike guests will find “BIGD” placing them at the heart of the event,” notes Fred Van Noy, Sr. VP and Chief Operating Officer.
We'll be publishing more information about the theater as time goes on, and we'll have their showtimes when they're available!
