Carmike Cinemas was a former American movie theater chain that existed from 1982 until it was acquired by rival AMC Theaters in 2016 and converted into one of AMC's sub-brands, AMC Classic.[1][2] Like most theater chains, it, however, had some missing intros and policy trailers. The following list is to keep track of these following material.


1982-Early 1990s

Made around the same time Carmike Cinemas was founded. Footage or evidence to this intro is lost, most likely forever and probably will never be found, however, the only known existence to this is what the Audiovisual Identity Database claims it to be with no description on what the logo actually looked like.

Early 1990s-1999

The original soundtrack to this intro is missing, however, parts of this can be seen on the Carmike Cinemas Orientation video from 1995. even though there is a full version of this intro that can be seen on Platypus Comix's website, it has a new music dubbed in instead of the original music. There was an eBay listing of this intro, but it had "This theater has been operated by" on top of the Carmike Cinemas logo in yellow and now the link and pictures to that are gone.

The Carmike Cinemas intro used from the early 1990's-1999. This was seen on the "Carmine Cinemas Orientation Video" (1995).
