Manhattan, KS: Carmike Town Center 13 Opens Ahead of Schedule

Posted on Monday, December 12th, 2016 and updated on Friday, January 20th, 2017 1:23 PM

Carmike Cinemas logoThe Carmike Town Center 13 in Manhattan, Kansas opened on December 11, 2016, ahead of its expected December 16th opening date.

According to a brief article in The Mercury, the theater will show a limited slate of second-run movies this week, and then a full line-up of first-run movies on Friday, as originally planned. Such "soft openings" give the theater staff a chance to iron out any wrinkles in the operation before the pressure of opening night.

Ovation Cinema Grill logoOne of the thirteen screens is an IMAX auditorium and five feature in-theater dining as part of Carmike's Ovation Cinema Grill. It is a relatively new venture by Carmike Cinemas to combine moviegoing with in-theater restaurant service. The menu available on the Ovation Cinema Grill web site shows appetizers such as bone-in wings, pretzel sticks, and cheese fries, entrees that include burgers, tacos, sandwiches, salads, and desserts as well. A selection of wines, cocktails, martinis, margaritas, and soft drinks are also shown.

The IMAX theater is the only one within quite a distance, so moviegoers in the area that want to see movies on what is reportedly a screen measuring 75 feet wide and "four stories" tall should be happy with the opening of this theater. According to other news reports (see the list below), the theater was originally expected to open in September, and then November. The timing of the theater's opening is perfect, with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Friday and the holiday openings right around the corner.

The only other theater in town is also a Carmike location, the Carmike Seth Childs 12. The next closest is the B & B Junction City Gem in Junction City, which is almost 20 miles away.
