These theaters are located on the U.S. Army Post, Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia. This post has been around since 1918 and is home to the Army Basic Combat Training & Advanced Individual Training and also Airborne (Parachutintg) School. The 182,00 acre post has about 120,000 active duty soliders.


Normally the U.S. Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES), Reel Time Theaters operates single screen theaters on it’s installations.

This theater is in Building 1687, cost 2.7 million to build, and was built and is run by Carmike Theaters Inc. which happens to be headquartered right next door in Columbus, Georgia. It opened at 14:30(2:30pm) on December 6, 1996. It is open Monday-Friday 17:45(5:45pm)-21:00(9:00pm), Soliders work during the day. Saturday & Sunday 11:00-22:00(10:00pm). Because it is still "run" by AAFES "PROPER IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED". I would guess "THE NATIONAL ANTHEM" is played before all flicks just like at all other military theaters. The highest priced ticket is $7.50, much cheaper then for first run theaters in town. Any profits that are made go into the Soliders Welfare and Recreation Funds.

It was closed by AMC Theatres in early-January, 2020. It was taken over by Lucas Cinemas in February 2020, but closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was reopened in October 2020.

Does anyone know about Carmike and Military Services, Inc.?

Chuck1231; Perhaps Bing is better, but folks aren’t going to go to Bing. Perhaps you could suggest to the Gods at CT that they change everything over to Bing?

Wonder how long it will be before Carmike closes this one.I still say most of the young Fighting men and women when are off duty are not going to this ten plex,but instead the “tenPlex” in town,just to get away.

Mike The Pessimist; It’s been open for 14 years. It didn’t close in 2000 when Carmike went through bankruptcy. It must be a pretty good idea cause the U.S. Army & Air Force Exchange Service is having another private theater company build another 10 screen, 1,712 seat, at another U.S. Army Post that is due to open this fall.

Uploaded an exterior photo from the AMC Classic Fort Benning site. It shows Wynnsong as the operator, a fact not mentioned in the overview or comments.

Wynnsong was not the operator, it was Carmike. Wynnsong is what they named their theatres, usually if there was more than one in the same area. The first was named Carmike, the second was named Wynnsong.

The Carmike Wynnsong 10 opened on December 6th, 1996. Grand opening ad posted.

It reopened in 2020 by Lucas Cinemas and should be listed as open.

The Wynnsong cinema was listed separately from the other Carmike Cinemas in the newspaper listings. a military ID was required after 2004.
