‘The Avengers,’ and the soon to be released ‘The Hobbit,’ proves that
audiences are excited about and enjoy the new DIGITAL experience, and are
demanding it,” notes Mr. Passman. “These early successes will no doubt
persuade producers to release more movies in this format, and with the “BIGD”
experience – in either 3-D or 2-D DIGITAL – Carmike has the full capability to
