Curtains for United Artists Movie Theater in East Whiteland?
A car dealership is looking to open at the location on Lancaster Avenue.
What might Yogi Berra have said about Malvern's lone movie theater, United Artists East Whiteland Stadium 9? Perhaps that everyone goes there because it's never crowded.
The theater might not be around for much longer, though. Devon Automotive Group is in talks to purchase the property and open a car dealership on the site.
The company is requesting East Whiteland change the zoning of the three parcels that comprise the property from Village Mixed Use to Frontage Commercial so that it can open a Sloane Toyota dealership there.
At a township meeting Wednesday night, the Board of Supervisors scheduled a Dec. 12 public hearing to consider the zoning change.
If the United Artists does close, Malvern won't be without a theater of its own for long, as a luxury theater is due to open at Uptown Worthington.
