East Whiteland's lone movie theater moved one step closer to closure last week, as the township supervisors approved a zoning change that will allow a car dealership to open on the property.
Devon Automotive Group requested that three parcels currently occupied by United Artists East Whiteland Stadium 9 be changed from Village Mixed Use (VMX) to Frontage Commercial (FC) zoning classification.
The board of supervisors approved the change in a public hearing held Dec. 12. According to Township Manager Terry Woodman, the automotive group plans to open a Toyota dealership at the site.
A luxury movie theater is due to open at the Uptown Worthington property at Routes 202 and 29 on the eastern edge of the township.
