7-Screen Theater Being Readied in Granada Hills

July 16, 1985

United Artists Communications Inc. is remodeling space for a seven-screen movie theater at the Granada Hills Village Shopping Center. The company says it will be the first movie house in Granada Hills.

The theater complex on Zelzah Avenue will cost about $5 million and will open in March. It will seat about 2,600 in seven screening rooms, according to Larry Levin, a United Artists vice president.

He said the San Francisco-based company, the nation's second-largest theater chain, also plans an eight-screen complex in North Hollywood within 1 1/2 years.

The company is not related to the former film-production company called United Artists, which was acquired by MGM in 1981.
