Ufa cinemas redub

World Brief

The Ufa name is about to vanish from German theaters after the Cine Star group announced plans to rename all houses left with the Ufa label.

Change will end a longstanding confusion between the cinemas and production company Ufa Film & TV Produktion, an RTL Group unit that handles German-lingo activities.

“The rights to the name have long been owned by RTL Group, and we had a license that will expire at the end of December,” a Cine Star spokesman said.

Cine Star operates 21 Ufa houses, which it took over in early 2003 from insolvent cinema operator Ufa Theater.
