Inside Red Cinemas' Theater 6


Theater 6 Red CinemasGreensboro is home to a new concept for movie goers. Over the past year, those who patronize Red Cinema, which took over Carousel Cinemas on Battleground, have been noticing upgrades and eagerly awaiting the promise of recliner seating in a couple of the theaters. The first theater with fully-powered recliner seating, "Theater 6," is now open. If the recliners were the only added feature to lure movie buffs from their living rooms back to movie houses, I would have been sold. The seats are comfortable. They allow ample room between each patron. They eliminate the possibility of someone behind you kicking your seat or someone in front of you blocking your view. They ensure those in the first two rows, right under the giant silver screen, no longer have to leave the show with a stiff neck. And the seats are reserved. You can select which recliners you want when you purchase your movie ticket. To watch a movie in Theater 6, you will have to pay an additional $3. However, based on what Hubby and I experienced, it is well worth the up-charge. 

But there is more to Red Cinemas than just the best seating for movie watching that ever existed. This theater also offers an upscale concession stand with Starbucks coffee, craft brews, wine, Pepsi machines that offer 132 ways to build a soft drink, flavored popcorn and candied nuts in addition to all your movie theater favorites. 

The interior of the theater has been completely renovated. It provides plenty of space and new seating in the lobby and bistro areas so patrons can relax and catch up with friends and neighbors before and after movies and during special events. My favorite features are the 15-foot chandeliers in the lobby. Similar to the milk bottle chandelier at The Table Bakery in Asheboro, Red Cinema boasts two wine glass chandeliers. There is also a DJ box for movie releases and special functions.

Restaurant Entertainment DistrictConsidering I brought up special functions, I should mention that Theater 6, the one with the recliner seating, is also Xbox equipped. My teen might actually let me plan just one more birthday party for the chance to take advantage of this feature. There is nothing lame about hanging out with a few friends for gaming on the big screen. Hubby and his friends would most likely volunteer to "chaperone" the party.

Since re-envisioning movie theater offerings and reopening, Red Cinemas has also shown 175 movies that were not shown anywhere else in the city in addition to all the popular Hollywood releases.

Want to plan a full dinner and a movie date night? Red Cinemas, The Marshall House and Burger Warfare are co-located and enjoy another cooperative neighbor, Pig Pounder, across the street. Combo specials are in the works among the venues as they collaborate to build a unique Restaurant Entertainment District on Battleground.

And there is more to come. Look for these additional features in the coming months:

  • Additional recliner theater
  • Family movie specials
  • Summer kids' movie programs
  • Club Red, a membership club for discounts, special events and more

Red Cinemas is located at 1305 Battleground Ave., Greensboro. For more information, visit
