Morris Movie Theater searched for bombs

Posted by wlpo on August 17, 2012

Friday is a busy day for movie theaters; maybe that’s why somebody felt the need to call in a bomb threat to a national cinema chain.

The Orpheum Theater in Morris was included in threat made to Carmike Cinemas’ Cinemas Corporate off in Georgia Thursday night.  A bomb squad searched the building Friday morning before the theater opened.

Carmike says all of the affected theaters were search and local police departments and the FBI were contacted.  Federal investigators are looking into it.

Carmike owns the Peru Mall Cinemas.  They weren’t affected.
