Carmike Cinemas, the nation's fourth-largest movie theater chain, received a bomb threat on Friday against locations across the country.
Local authorities have inspected theaters in Illinois, North Carolina and Oklahoma and found no evidence of danger, said Terrell Mayton, Carmike's director of marketing.
"We are ready for guests to enjoy movies this afternoon," he said.
The threats, which were called in to Carmike's corporate headquarters in Columbus, Ga., were aimed at theaters premiering Lionsgate's "The Expendables 2."
Mayton said that Carmike is cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the case and more information would be released later Friday.
Carmike operates 256 theaters in 36 states and has its largest presence in the South and Midwest. It does not have any cinemas in California.
