Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today unveiled special weekend-long concessions promotions at all 252 of its entertainment complexes in conjunction with the celebration of National Popcorn Weekend. All Carmike guests that purchase an annual refillable popcorn bucket throughout the extended weekend will also receive a large fountain drink for the combined price of a discounted $21, representing substantial savings.
Patrons that already own their 2014 bucket will also receive the special discount on their bucket refills during Nation Popcorn Weekend, a 60% savings off the regular price at only $1.50 per refill. These promotions extend through evening movie showings on Monday, January 20, which is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day national federal holiday. Annual refillable buckets are available at all Carmike theatres on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last. Following this weekend those that own a bucket, which normally retails for $19.50, can return to their local Carmike theatre throughout the year to receive refills for just $3.75.
Carmike President and CEO David Passman stated, “We are delighted to celebrate National Popcorn Weekend across 37 states, together with our valued guests at all Carmike locations. The annual refillable popcorn bucket has proven to be one of our most successful concessions promotions of all time. With this holiday weekend’s discounted savings, we hope to welcome many new participants into our program, and to reward our loyal patrons that already own their 2014 buckets by offering them significant savings on all annual bucket refills, through Monday evening.”
