The Carmike Thoroughbred 20 in Franklin, Tennessee opened its new IMAX auditorium to customers on Friday, March 7, 2014, according to a press release issued recently by Carmike Cinemas.
“At each Carmike location we are committed to bringing our guests a cutting-edge entertainment experience. We have and will continue to focus on delivering premium presentation choices through our large format digital projection while providing bigger screens, better sound, and the finest in-theatre seating for definitive enjoyment of our audiences. The IMAX Experience® is world-renowned and we are confident that audiences will enjoy this immersive cinematic platform in the Franklin, TN market,” stated David Passman, President and CEO, Carmike Cinemas.
The new IMAX joins the theater's BigD auditorium, which opened at that location in November 2010. That screen measures "78 feet wide and over three stories tall" (which should mean that it is about 30 feet tall). There's no mention of the size of the IMAX screen in the press release.
Previously, if people in the Franklin area wanted to see a movie in an IMAX theater, they would have had to visit the Regal Opry Mills 20 & IMAX about 20 miles away in Nashville.
To see what's playing at the Thoroughbred 20's IMAX and BigD screens, head over to their Showtimes page and look for the notations beneath the showtimes for each movie!
