UA’s planned sales, expansions

The United Artists Theatres chain, in an attempt to maintain its standing as the largest film exhibitor in the country, is in the process of reconfiguring itself. Here is a rundown of some of the company’s planned additions and subtractions.

WHAT’S IN

  • UA has two theaters set to open by Christmas in the Philly suburbs–nine screens in Upper Darby, Pa., and a 10-screen complex in Langhorn, Pa. The circuit plans to build a 14-screen complex in Washington Township and another multiplex in Chesterbrook by spring of ’94.

  • In the “major target area” San Fernando Valley, circuit has two sites under consideration–an eight-plex in La Canada Flintridge and a 10-plex in Moorpark. Both are penciled in for completion in early 1994.

  • New York expansion includes two locations on Long Island–Westbury and Commack. UA’s New York metropolitan rival is Loews Theatres.

  • In Atlanta, UA is in negotiations on a 10-screen multiplex in Alpharetta suburb.

  • In the greater Miami area, the circuit has a 12-screen complex on the boards for and plans an eight-screen complex in West Palm Beach for fall 1993.

  • UA will open a six-screen multiplex in Sacramento by the end of the year, for roughly 20 screens in the area.

  • UA is focusing much of its energies on under-screened Texas markets, including final negotiations for a 12-screen multiplex in Laredo. The circuit intends to continue to expand in the major markets of Houston, San Antonio and Dallas.

  • Five locations are being refurbished, in Augusta, Ga.; Boca Raton, Fla.; Denver; San Francisco; and Baltimore.

WHAT’S OUT

  • Forty-three screens are for sale in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

  • The circuit is trying to pull out of such smaller Florida cities as Margate , Orange City and Plantation. It has seven theaters and 57 screens on the block there.
