Residents sent in emails and comments to Patch concerning the current Carmike Cinema, located at 905 Scenic Hwy #6000, fearing that it would become another vacant building in town. However, Terrell Mayton, Director of Marketing for Carmike, told Snellville Patch that "our existing Snellville location will continue to serve our guests."
Jon Davis, city manager, confirmed that the complex will be on the property right after The Avenue, if you're headed toward Lawrenceville on Scenic Highway. That property is outside of Snellville city limits, but the city is in negotiations to annex that portion of town, including the entirety of The Avenue and the new cinema complex.
The city limits of Snellville currently end around North Road, just past Lowes.
The new Carmike 13 will be an anchor tenant of a 43-acre multi-use development, and management hopes to attract top-tier shops, restaurants and commercial properties.
