|Home: BigScreen Journal - Champaign, IL: Carmike 13 Set To Open October 31, 2013|
The new Carmike 13 in Champaign, Illinois is set to open on Thursday, October 31, 2013, according to a press release issued recently by Carmike Cinemas. There will be a pre-opening Charity Event at 7pm Thursday, October 30th, with the proceeds benefitting United Way of Champaign County, and all guests will be able to enjoy discounted admission and concessions ($2 each for tickets, popcorn, and fountain drinks).
All auditoriums will have Digital Cinema Projection systems, stadium seating, and high-back luxury rocking seats with retractable armrests. One of the rooms will be Carmike's big-screen concept "BigD" auditoriums, which will feature a 81' wide screen and a Dolby® Atmos™ sound installation.
The press release describes the lobby as being "upscale" and it will offer multiple concession areas with an "expanded food and beverage menu." Self-service Coca-Cola Freestyle drink centers and popcorn stations round out the amenities before you get to the room with the screen in it.
Carmike President and CEO David Passman stated, “We are delighted to provide the ultimate experience for our valued guests at the Carmike 13, with bigger screens, better sound and luxurious stadium seating in which to enjoy cutting-edge digital cinema presentations. With the opening of our newest location, the Champaign area joins a select, but growing list of communities offering Carmike theatregoers our brand of large format BigD entertainment, which seats nearly 600 guests in luxurious comfort.”
