Cherry Blossom 14 Opens in Time for Star Wars

Twin Shores proudly attended the opening of the new Carmike Cherry Blossom 14 in Traverse City Michigan on December 15th, 2015. The 59,000 SF theater began construction in below 20 degree weather last February and was completed ahead of schedule; just in time for the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The innovative use of precast concrete panels in lieu of traditional masonry construction allowed the theater to continue on schedule despite the extreme weather. The theater’s single IMAX screen seats 484 people in leather rockers with arms that fold up out of the way. Seats in the other 13 theaters also are rockers but are upholstered in cloth. All the screens in the multiplex are slightly curved to minimize projection distortion. The smallest theaters in the multiplex seat 144 people.
