It’s official: The big screen going into the Savoy 16 theater complex will be an IMAX, says Heath Thomas, regional manager for Goodrich Quality Theatres.
Representatives of Carmike Cinemas, which operates the Beverly 18 in Champaign, and Goodrich, which operates the Savoy 16, both confirmed last week that they plan to add an auditorium with a big screen.
Thomas later got word that Savoy’s new big-screen auditorium will be an IMAX.
The closest IMAX theaters to Champaign-Urbana are in Peoria, the Indianapolis area, the Chicago metropolitan area and Edwardsville.
