Thursday is the last night you'll be able to catch a movie at the Carmike Cinema 10 by the Mall of Acadiana. The Advocate reports that it was the last cinema in Louisiana for the Georgia-based company, which maintains some 250 theaters in 30 states. The 10-screen movie theater was retrofitted with stadium-style seating, perhaps in response to the encroaching Grand Theatres in Lafayette — with 14 screens on Johnston Street and another 10 on Kaliste Saloom — but to little effect. As late as a year ago, the little theater usually looked like a vacant building, even on weekend nights.
