MARTIN & CARMIKE were different chains that ran this theatre.

Towards the end this theater was really gross. I remember walking out of a movie (and I was on a date) from this theater.

It looks the same, but now is a christian fellowship

I used to take my two young daughters there all the time, during the late ‘70s and early '80s. It was a nice theater doing a brisk business back then. But the neighborhood deteriorated over time (I moved my family out of there in 1988), and the theatre eventually closed. I have good memories of enjoying family pictures with the kids.

Carmike Cinemas took over the Beechmont Twin in 1985 and sold it off by 1989.
