Carmike to open Bradley Square 12 with 'BIGD' in Cleveland, TN

Dec 7, 2012

Carmike Cinemas announced the Dec. 13 opening of its newest entertainment complex in the Bradley Square Mall in Cleveland, Tenn. The new 12-screen theatre complex will seat over 2,300 guests and feature Carmike’s branded “BIGD” auditorium.

The new facility is equipped with stadium-style seating with high-back luxury chairs, wall-to-wall screens, digital projection and sound, and multiple concession areas featuring Coca-Cola Freestyle drink centers.

The gala charity grand opening night will feature $1 admission with $1 small popcorn and $1 small drinks, with all proceeds benefiting The Ronald McDonald House, which provides a "home away from home" for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals.

The “BIGD” auditorium includes a wall-to-wall screen measuring 60 feet wide and nearly three stories tall, and digital projection powered by a Christie Brilliant 3D flash projector. The custom QSC digital audio system is tuned to a 7.1 speaker array with 16 channels and the ability to upgrade to 11.1.

Complexes featuring Carmike’s “BIGD” experience currently under construction include Decatur, AL; Sandestin, FL; Champaign, IL; Jacksonville, NC, and Winchester, VA, with plans underway for construction to begin in Opelika, AL; Oak Grove, KY, and El Paso, TX.
