Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema
and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today announced the signing of a
build-to-suit agreement and long-term lease with Anthony Properties (Anthony),
a leading real estate development and investment firm. Anthony is constructing
a new 13-screen digital cinema entertainment complex that Carmike will
operate. The new facility is projected to open during the first half of 2014
and will be centrally located off Chantilly Parkway (Route 110) in Montgomery,
AL next to the Home Depot.

Jay Anthony, Principal of Dallas, TX-based Anthony Properties, developers of
the project, stated, “The top-tier retail, restaurant and commercial tenants
in the area and proximity to Auburn University’s Montgomery Campus make this
an ideal site for another Carmike Cinemas state-of-the-art theatre. Over the
past 25 years we have developed 40-plus properties for Carmike and are
delighted to work with them on what we believe is another exceptional location
in their growing footprint.”

The new 13-plex theatre will feature luxurious stadium seating for up to 2,800
guests in aggregate. The theatre will also showcase a cutting-edge “BIGD”
large format auditorium, Carmike’s critically acclaimed premium theatre
experience with a wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling 81-foot wide screen,
comfortable high back rocking luxury seats, retractable armrests, convenient
cup holders and seating for 600 patrons. The other 12 auditoriums will be
equipped with large, wall-to-wall screens, as well as high-quality DLP DIGITAL
projection and surround sound. Other components of the new theatre will
include an upscale lobby, multiple concession areas featuring Coca-Cola
Freestyle drink centers, and one-stop ticketing and concessions stations for
the convenience of all guests.

Carmike Cinemas President and Chief Executive Officer David Passman stated,
“Carmike continues actively expanding our growing circuit, on our way to 300
theatres and 3,000 screens through opportunistic, accretive acquisitions and
the addition of multiple new-build theatres in promising locations across
‘Hometown America.’ Alabama has become of one of our top-five states, with 13
theatres at year-end, including six properties we recently acquired from Rave
Review Cinemas last November. In addition to the Montgomery entertainment

and will soon begin construction in Opelika, AL.”
