On November 6, Carmike Cinemas will open the nation’s first standalone theater with energy and environmental sensitive design, a 12 plex that has been certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

While Chattanooga isn’t the first place that springs to mind for a green movie house (c’mon LA, get it together), The Carmike Majestic’s green credentials also include use of recycled construction materials, roof-mounted solar energy panels, energy efficient light and water recycling for landscaping and restrooms and a low-pollutant maintenance program.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carmike president David Passmore said, “We realize environmental challenges and concerns facing our planet are becoming more critical with each passing day. For this reason, we especially look forward to bringing the first-ever ‘green’ entertainment complex to the people of Chattanooga and the surrounding communities.”

It would have been kind of cool if this was launching at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences or something but if it’s a success in Tennessee maybe it will start to become the norm.
