I don’t remember it being a large auditorium or that it had a balcony.

I saw Scrooge and Funny Lady there in the 70’s and the screen was great. I can’t imagine how horrible it was a twin.

The theater is United Artist Beaucathcher not Regal. I am not sure who or why the name was changed.

Very upsetting News. See the Citizen Times article

ASHEVILLE — A Texas-based real-estate investment company has bought East Asheville United Artists Beaucatcher Cinemas 7 at roughly half its assessed value.

UDC Global LLC paid about $2.46 million to the Las Vegas Trail Theatre Company for the property at 321 New Haw Creek Lane, according to Buncombe County Register of Deeds documents.

The land and structure have a 2015 assessed value of $4.58 million, those documents say.

Register of Deeds officials recorded the sale on April 9.

William McGuire, a UDC Global LLC executive, did not respond to a voicemail left for him Tuesday at the company.

He also did not respond to a phone message left for him Tuesday with Belinda Burke, a paralegal who prepared the deed. Burke works at Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, the Atlanta-based law firm that represented UDC Global during the purchase.

Properties owned and managed by UDC Global include a golf resort in Villa Rica, Georgia, and a residential community in Atlanta, according to its website.

A manager at the movie theater declined comment when a reporter called and asked when the cinema was scheduled to close.

He referred all questions to Ken Thewes, of the Regal Entertainment Group, the company based in Knoxville, Tennessee, which runs United Artists Theatres.

A phone message left for Thewes on Tuesday was not returned.

A sheville city officials said that as of Tuesday, UDC Global had not filed any documents that show plans to develope the property.

Nick do you know if the theater went digital? I hated this and all the drive-in that Floyd theaters owned except the 20th Century. They wanted the screens filled at all times so if a film was in scope it was off the screen into the bushes. Digital would have solved that.

The whole Granite Run mall is being demolished? It as a great mall. I went to the theater twice, once in 1991 to see The Prince Of Tides and in 2007 to see Harry Potter. It was always a great neighborhood.

Big Joe I agree and wonder why The Paris can get mostly exclusive first run films but the Ziegfeld can’t

He has an excellent point. The theaters here in Asheville NC don’t have any restrictions on what theaters beer and wine are taken into.

Al, do you know if they undivided the 3 large auditoriums that had been divided? I suspect they are going to add more. Very strange for AMC to purchase a small theater.
