Carmike Cinemas Inc. is a motion picture exhibitor headquartered in Columbus, Georgia in the United States of America. As of December 31, 2010 it operates or has an interest in 239 theaters with 2,236 screens in 35 states, making it the fourth largest theatre company in the United States.
Carmike was founded when Carl L. Patrick, Sr. acquired Martin Theatres from Fuqua Industries in 1982. The theater name comes from a combination of Carl L. Patrick, Sr.'s two sons, Carl Jr. and Michael, hence Carmike.
Carmike theaters are largely positioned in rural or suburban areas with populations under 200,000. The company bills itself as "America's Hometown Theatre".
The Company's theatres are operated under various names and will generally have a name followed by the number of auditoriums at that location, for example "Carmike 15". Names currently in use include Carmike, Wynnsong, GKC, Cine, Cinema, Movies, Stadium, and other local variants such as "Fleming Island 12" in Fleming Island, FL.
