Only two employees and no customers were inside in Cartersville this morning when a bomb threat led to evacuations and searches of several movie theaters, Sgt. Jonathan Rogers said.
Company officials asked local authorities to conduct a search after Carmike's corporate offices in Columbus, GA, received what Rogers called a "non-specific threat."
"It didn't include a location," Rogers said. "So they didn't know where the bombs could be."
Nothing suspicious was found in the Cartersville theater following the 9 a.m. threat, Rogers added. The theater was not evacuated.
