Hickory Hollow Mall was my home in the 80s and early 90s. Many good times at Hickory Hollow Mall Cinemas. Worked at Bell Road Cinemas. When Bell Forge opened in 1984 it was only a 6 plex at the time. I went and saw Red Dawn. The theater was so new the parking lot was half paved. Great memories watching movies in the Hickory Hollow area. Also, Bell Forge was the flagship for Carmike for awhile. Good times.

I think I have some of the exterior of Bell Rd 4-5-6, but from what I recall, there are people in them. These are from April or May of 1982. I also have some from Cinema South from the ‘80’s as well. Will try to locate them.

Carmike closed 1-2-3 when they opened Hickory 8 where the Bell Road Cinemas (4-5-6) used to be. I worked at the Bell Rd in the late 70’s/early 80’s. Hickory Hollow Mall was a new mall that opened in 1978…. it was the place to go in the 70’s and 80’s. Carmike also built a 6-plex across Bell Rd (Bell Forge)to compete with Consolidated’s 6 screens. They eventually expanded it to 10 screens. All of these theatres are closed now, except for Hickory 8, which is now a discount theatre, a buck fifty. Malco is now the area theatre to go to down in Smyrna, south of Antioch. They have 14 screens, all stadium and digital projection.

The Mall cinemas were 1,2,3

Bell Road was a detached theatre that was 4,5,6.

It was the district office for Consolidated Theatres before Carmike bought them out.

The Land that hickory 8 sits on, is where Bell Road Cinemas used to be. They demolished a 3 screen, and built an 8 screen on the same spot.
