COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Carmike Cinemas announced on Monday that they've acquired two theaters in the northeast, in a deal worth $5.4 million in cash.

The news announcement says they deal with AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. puts a total of 22 more screens, including nine 3D screens, bringing their total number of theaters to 275, with 2,942 screens in 41 states owned by Carmike.

The former Starplex/AMC Theaters are located in East Windsor, NJ and Berlin, CT.

“We are pleased to welcome these two outstanding theaters to the Carmike family," Carmike President and CEO David Passman said. "Both the East Windsor Town Center 10 and the Berlin 12 Theater have been successful in creating a compelling movie-going experience for the residents of East Windsor and Berlin, incorporating the latest technology in picture, sound quality and seating.”

The two theaters have recently undergone renovations, including new luxury seating and 100 percent digital projections in the New Jersey location.

“The two theatres are located in markets with limited geographic overlap with our existing theatre circuit, and are a perfect complement to our growing presence in the Northeast. We look forward to providing a world-class guest experience to movie-goers in East Windsor and Berlin by creating a premier movie-going experience and family destination with great amenities and outstanding customer service.”
