Carmike expanded the plex to eleven screens in 1995. A few years later, Silver Cinemas built a 10-plex into the old Pace Warehouse (about two blocks south and a block west) with a $1.50 second-run format, promptly killing Carmike's downtown "Value Cinema". Carmike quickly finished construction on the Wynnsong 16 in Johnston and immediately changed Carmike 11 into a $1.00 second-run house. Silver Cinemas went first-run a week later. Carmike kept it as a dollar house until they shut down the 11 a couple years later. Nova resurrected it in 2002 with their "first-and-a-half" run format combining a small popcorn and soda with the ticket price of $5 (you could also just buy a ticket for $3.75.) Nova converted one of the auditoriums into a laser tag operation, thus the reason it's only ten screens.
