Carmike plans Patriot 14 in Fayetteville, NC


Carmike Cinemas is expanding its presence in Fayetteville, North Carolina, with the new Patriot 14, which is being constructed at 4761 Lake Valley Drive and slated for a late fall 2014 opening. Carmike’s customers in the region include the nearby U.S. Army Fort Bragg military base.

The Patriot 14, which will include an IMAX auditorium, will have a total stadium seating capacity exceeding 3,100. The facility’s upscale lobby will contain multiple concession areas featuring self-serve Coca-Cola Freestyle drink centers, which pour more than 100 customized fountain drink varieties. One-stop ticketing will be included in the lobby area. The new complex will also provide special services for visually and hearing-impaired patrons.

Carmike also announced the start of construction on a new 12-screen entertainment complex featuring its “Big D” premium auditorium at the Crossing South of Spring Hill shopping center in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The circuit is also planning a new 14-plex with a “Big D” auditorium to replace its Horizon 10-screen location in Traverse City, Michigan.
