Carmike Cinema 6

Opened December 16, 1983 as one of the first multiplex theatres in the Wilmington area under Charlotte based Stewart and Everett Theatres Corporation. They operated several movie-houses in the Wilmington area and surrounding New Hanover County.

Stewart and Everett had the Cinema 6 under it operations until it was acquired by Carmike by 1986. Carmike Cinemas operated the Cinema 6 until its closing in 2005. In 2015 the theatre was being renovated, but this proved to be a false start as it was demolished in April 2019.

I passed this theater last night on my way to “Mayfaire Town Center Cinema 16” and noticed that the outdoor movie poster display cases were on. Empty but on. Odd sight.

Cinema 6 in Wilmington was Carmike’s last discount theater east of Raleigh; it replaced the Independence Mall 3 as Wilmington’s second-run house.

The building had the same identical style and concept as the Cinema 6 in Jacksonville and Havelock and also in the same design as the Cinema 4 in Southern Pines.
