The theater will be going through a complete renovation starting in October. They are putting recliners in all theater ,plus a new digital sound and projection system and new screens. This theater is very well run and has great staff working there.

Theaters 1-7 have been closed the past few weeks for renovation and installation of the recliners. Once they finish these 7 they will close theater 8-14. All theaters will become reserved seats. Not really sure how I feel about this. This chain is a first class chain.

As of 2023, Cinemark has turned the multiplex into their dine-in “bistro” concept, as its now called “Cinemark Bistro at The Carolina Asheville”.

The name has changed but nothing else has. I was there Saturday night and I just talked to the GM who said it’s in name only.
