Manos Quality Theatres Enterprises opened this as the Mercer Mall Cinemas 8 as an outparcel building to the Mercer Mall in Bluefield, West Virginia on November 16 1990 with a benefit screening. It replaced an interior mall cinema that reportedly had launched when the Mercer Mall opened in 1980. On November 19, 1993, Carmike Theatres bought out the 1912-founded circuit started by Michael Manos - then operated by Ted Manos. The venue became the Carmike Cinemas 8.

In 2016, AMC bought the 1968-founded circuit started by C.L. Patrick and named after sons Carl and Mike (CarMike / Carmike). AMC rebranded all of its locations as one of three designations AMC Theatres, AMC CLASSIC, and AMC Dine-In on February 28, 2017. The majority of inherited - and especially older - locations including Carmike and Kerasotes locations - were given the Classic designation that included the Carmike ā€œCā€ logo distinction. The Mercer Mall 8-plex was among the vast majority of Carmike locations rebranded. It became knows as the AMC CLASSIC Bluefield 8 on March 1, 2017.

The AMC CLASSIC Bluefield 8 closed on March 16, 2020 along with most other hardtop theaters in the U.S. due to the COVID-19 pandemic. AMC reopened its CLASSIC Bluefield 8 on September 4, 2020. In the streaming era, the circuit closed the AMC CLASSIC Bluefield 8 on February 26, 2023 at the end of a leasing period.
