The Columbus company said Thursday that construction will begin soon on a 13-screen complex across from The Avenue shopping center in Snellville, just northeast of Atlanta.
Company executives say the Carmike 13 complex in Snellville will seat 2,800 moviegoers.
In Alabama, Carmike will also have a grand opening for a 12-screen theater March 7 in Decatur Mall on Beltline Road in Decatur, Ala. It seats 2,300.
The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that the movie-theater chain has complexes in the works for several other communities including the Alabama cities of Opelika and Montgomery.
