Glad they are keeping the theater and putting money into it rather then redevelop it for commercial use

Big plans for an 11-acre parcel on the Schuylkill River in Bala Cynwyd

Quote from Philadelphia Business Journal-April 14, 2017- Sean McCloskey’s Penn Real Estate Group………. recently bought the United Artists movie theater and its associated shopping center from Bart Blatstein’s Tower Investments for $5.6 million. It was one of Blatstein’s first projects and was built more than 20 years ago. “Time to transition it,” Blatstein said about the sale.

The theater will get more than $1 million in renovations. New plush seating will halve its 1,500 seats and new food and beverage offerings will be provided.

The June 1999 Philadelphia Magazine rated the UA Main Street 6 a “3” on a 1 to 5 scale with comment: “Manayunk deserves better” A high rating was awarded in the Seating category. Instead of the characterization “First-run mainstream” applied to other mainstream moviehouses, the term “Lame mainstream” was used.

If you catch a flick on one of the United Artists' Main Street 6’s two giant screens, you’re in for an enveloping treat. If you get stuck in one of its four smaller houses, well, you’re screwed.
