Variety honors theatre veteran Herman Stone

Aug 26, 2013

Herman Stone, founder and CEO of Stone Theatres, was awarded the 2013 “Mac McAfee Big Heart Award” by the Georgia chapter of Variety The Children’s Charity. The award is presented to individuals for their service and charity work for children.

“This award isn’t just for my own efforts,” said Stone. “I have worked with some dedicated people during my years in the business. I might have been the face of the business, but it’s their extraordinary work and their commitment to quality that has helped make what we do a success.”

Stone has spent more than 40 years in the film industry, joining Consolidated Theatres in 1965 upon graduating from Pfeiffer College to handle booking, film buying and business development. He worked his way up through the ranks of the company to become president in 1986. After selling the business to Carmike Cinemas, he founded Consolidated Theatres, Inc. in 1990, which became
the ninth largest theatre chain in the U.S., operating 421 screens in 30 locations in South Carolina, Maryland, Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. Stone formed Stone Theatres in 2008 and now operates locations in both North and South Carolina.

Stone’s additional charitable outreach has included organizations such as the Charlotte Regional Film Partnership and the Make‐a‐Wish Foundation.
