NEW CENTRE CINEMAS Opened on February 12,1976 as a three screen cinema with a seating capacity of 1,008 under Charlotte-based Stewart and Everett Theatres.

Stewart and Everett operated the New Centre Cinemas until 1986 when Carmike Cinemas took over as a acquisition of Stewart and Everett. Carmike Cinemas closed this theatre in 1995.

PICTURES COMING SOON…. The inside was renovated but outside it looks unchanged besides the deleated box office and the signage. If the marquee was put back people would surely think it was an operational theater.

The theater was renovated soon after its closing and is now a showroom for a car dealer
