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. 

Follow Malvern Patch on Facebook and Twitter.

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.

I visited my friend who lives behind a car dealership that was built after he moved into his home. 1. Lighting- they are on every night for security of their cars and trucks. It's never dark in his backyard. 2. Loudspeaker- Car dealers use them to instruct employees that are outside so they are loud enought to hear over an engine. Sometimes until late into the evening. 3. Trash pickup- every morning at 5:30 the trash truck is slamming the metal dumpster around. My friend does not like living next to a car dealer. Noisy, loud and after complaints things change for a short period and then back to normal. He said they haven't been using vulgar language lately over the loudspeaker that he is aware of. That only took a couple of complaints to stop.

Does anyone know when the theater will be closing?
