The Carmike 13 in Colorado Springs, Colorado is scheduled to open tomorrow, December 19, 2013, according to a press release issued earlier this month by Carmike Cinemas. The theater replaced the Carmike Chapel Hills 15, which closed on October 25, 2012 and demolished along with a KMart store so that this theater could be built.
The new 13-screen location will offer moviegoers stadium-style seating with high-backed rocking chairs with retractable armrests and cupholders, as well as Digital Cinema Projection systems in every auditorium. One of those auditoriums will be Carmike's big-screen concept BigD rooms, which steps things up a notch by entertaining nearly 600 guests with an upgraded sound system and a screen measuring 80 feet wide and more than 30 feet tall. (Expect to pay an upcharge for the pleasure, though.)
The theater opens at 4pm on Thursday with a fundraising event that will benefit Ronald McDonald House. Movie tickets will be $2 each, with $2 popcorn and drink specials as well.
On Friday, all those purchasing tickets for a movie in the BigD auditorium will be given a voucher for a $1 large drink and a $1 large popcorn, which can be redeemed until December 22, 2013.
In the press release, Carmike Cinemas President and CEO David Passman was quoted as saying:
At each Carmike location we are committed to bringing our customers a ‘best-in-class entertainment experience’ at an attractive value, including large format digital projection with bigger screens, better sound, and the finest in-theatre seating for cutting-edge presentations for the definitive enjoyment of our audiences. Additionally, Carmike’s premium ‘BigD’ format in Colorado Springs, our 22nd location for this uniquely immersive cinema presentation, further elevates the experience to an exciting new level for cinema goers. We are extremely pleased to celebrate the opening of the Carmike 13 and look forward to continuing to actively expand our growing circuit in promising locations like Colorado Springs.
We should have showtimes for the theater later today or early tomorrow, so check their Showtimes page for updates!
