ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- The wait is over for movie-lovers in the southeast corner of Greater Cincinnati. After a 10-day soft opening period, the brand new Carmike Cinemas in the Anderson Towne Center is officially opening Monday.
The signs have been up for months, so people have been anticipating this day for a very long time. When the doors finally open for the soft opening on Jan. 5(with all proceeds going to charity), it was the first theater of its kind in this neighborhood.
No longer will people have to drive to Newport, Kentucky, or Milford to catch the latest flicks on the big screen; they can just drive a few miles from home or work to the intersection of Beechmont Avenue and Five Mile Road.
Carmikes Ovation Cinema Grill has a restaurant, bar, luxury seating and state-of-the-art dimension sound and screen effects. Check movies and showtimes at the website here. Most tickets will be $3 during this soft opening.
