We've received a few E-Mails over the weekend asking about a movie theater opening in Lexington, North Carolina, but we didn't have much more than that to go on. After making some inquiries, we did find out that it appears that the former Carmike Cinema 8 - Lexington, which closed May 10, 2012 (read the Journal article), is being reopened.
The Dispatch published an article earlier this month with some details:
Rob McHone from Rosecrest Entertainment in Lexington is reopening the Cinema 8 movie theater on Talbert Boulevard.
"People shouldn't have to drive for 25 minutes just to go see a movie," McHone said. "The people of Lexington deserve to have a good theater."
McHone said that he plans on having the movie theater open for business within the next several weeks.
"My hope is to be open fairly soon," he said. "I would like to be ready by the holiday season."
Because of the condition of the building, McHone said he may stagger the opening of the theater by showing movies on only four of the eight screens.
"It is a work in progress," McHone said. "We still have a lot to do. There is a huge amount of cleaning that still needs to be done, and we are doing updates the best we can. Eventually we plan on having all eight screens running."
The new owner said the theater will show first-run movies, like the second installment of "The Hunger Games" series and "Anchorman 2." McHone said the best thing about reopening Cinema 8 is that it will now be locally owned.
