Montgomery, AL: Carmike Chantilly 13 Now Open

Posted on Friday, August 8th, 2014 12:04 PM by Scott Jentsch

Carmike Cinemas logoThe Carmike Chantilly 13 in Montgomery, Alabama celebrates their Grand Opening today, August 8, 2014, according to a press release issued by Carmike Cinemas. The theater was originally scheduled to open on July 18th, but it was rescheduled to July 25th.

The theater held a charitable event yesterday, with discounted movie tickets and concessions, which benefitted the River Region United Way. In addition, customers who attend through August 14th can enjoy a free drink from the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine, which dispenses customized drink selections from a variety of flavors.

One of the 13 auditoriums will be Carmike's big-screen concept "BigD" auditorium. The press release mentions that this auditorium features a screen that is 81 feet wide and "three stories tall," which should equal about 34.5 feet for a standard 2.35:1 screen. The sound system is upgraded as well, so the experience in that auditorium should be a step up from the others. As is usual with theaters that have these "enhanced" auditoriums, there is an upcharge for the pleasure of seeing a movie there. In this theater's case, you'll pay an additional $2 for a BigD presentation.

“We are delighted to bring this exceptional entertainment complex to the great city of Montgomery. At each Carmike location we are committed to providing our valued guests with superior cinema-going entertainment through large format digital projection with bigger screens, better sound, and the finest in-theatre seating to ensure a cutting-edge presentation each and every time,” stated David Passman, Carmike Cinemas President and Chief Executive Officer. “The new Chantilly 13 marks our twentieth location in Alabama and we are excited to have Montgomery join a select list of communities offering Carmike’s uniquely immersive BigD large screen experience.”

The closest competition for the Carmike Chantilly 13 is the AMC Festival Plaza 16, which is about a four mile drive to the southwest on Vaughn Road and Taylor Road. Carmike also operates the Carmike Promenade Cinema 12, which is on the other side of town in Prattville.
