Carmike plans new 13-plex in El Paso

Sept 14, 2012

Carmike Cinemas announced that construction will begin shortly on a new Carmike entertainment complex in El Paso, TX. The Carmike 13 will be an anchor tenant of a 230-acre multi-use planned development to be constructed at the northeast corner of Montana Avenue (US 62) and Loop 375 in one of El Paso’s fastest-growing areas. The planned development is located directly across the street from a new Lowe’s Home Improvement Center and a Walmart Supercenter.

Jay Anthony, principal of Dallas, TX-based Anthony Properties, developers of the project, stated, “New construction at Fort Bliss, proximity to the planned Army Medical Campus and the future El Paso Community College Campus make this a prime site that will attract additional top-tier retail, restaurant and commercial tenants to the area.”

The new theatre will have total seating for over 2,800 guests and will be highlighted by a state-of-the-art “BIGD” auditorium, Carmike’s premium theatre environment. The new facility will be equipped with auditoriums featuring stadium-style seating with high-back rocking luxury seats, digital projection and digital sound. The new theatre will have an upscale lobby and multiple concession areas featuring Coca Cola Freestyle drink centers. The new complex will also feature special services for the visual and hearing-impaired.
