Carmike Cinemas logoThe Carmike Cinemas - Grande 12 Albuquerque IMAX in Albuquerque, New Mexico opened yesterday, December 17, 2015, according to a press release issued by Carmike Cinemas.

The new 12-screen movie theater features an IMAX auditorium, with a screen that is 70' wide and "more than three stories tall," according to the announcement. Carmike President and CEO David Passman was quoted as follows:

“We are excited to bring Carmike’s superior cinematic experience and customer service to the Albuquerque community with the opening of the Grande 12 entertainment complex and to be part of the Las Estancias development project. With the upcoming releases of several highly-anticipated IMAX films, including ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ Carmike is thrilled to introduce IMAX’s one-of-a-kind immersive experience to Albuquerque and to showcase high-quality cinema technology, superior large format digital projection, impeccable sound and the finest in-theatre seating that Carmike is known for.”

While clearly not the focus of the press release, it does go on to mention that the other 11 auditoriums in the new theater will have 7.1 channel surround sound and "large, wall-to-wall screens, stadium seating, comfortable high-back rocking luxury seats, retractable armrests and convenient cup holders."

The closest competion for the new theater is the Century 14 Downtown Albuquerque, which is about six miles away. The only other IMAX theater in Albuquerque is the Regal Winrock Stadium 16 IMAX & RPX, which is about ten miles away.

Carmike Cinemas has 277 locations in 41 states, but this is their first in the Albuquerque area.
