CULLMAN — A handful of Cullman Police officers were seen searching the Cullman Carmike theater as a precaution late Friday morning, following a general bomb threat reported to the company’s corporate office in Columbus, Ga.
Officers were seen inside the Cherokee Avenue theater, as well as on the roof as part of a precautionary search.
When contacted Friday, Cullman Police Chief Kenny Culpepper referred comment to theater management.
Cullman Carmike 10 manager Harold Bernard declined to comment on the matter due to corporate restrictions.
The theater is scheduled to be open regular hours this weekend.
Carmike locations across the nation were reportedly searched throughout the day Friday for potential bombs, though nothing was found at any locations.
Fox News reports the general threat may have been called in by a disgruntled employee from the Georgia office.
A call to the corporate office seeking comment was not answered.
