UA Arden Fair 6

The Arden Fair 4 Cinemas is located on Arden Way, right next to the Arden Fair Mall. It was opened by Transcontinental Theaters on December 19, 1969 with four screens. Later taken over by United Artists and expanded to six screens. Although it kept the United Artists name, the theater is owned and run by Regal Entertainment Group.

This opened by Transcontinental theatres on December 19th, 1969 as the area’s first multiplex cinema complex with 4 screens. Grand opening ad posted.

The 1969 theatre was actually in an entirely different part of the mall. I haven’t been able to find concrete evidence of exactly where so I’ve never created a second entry for it, but the Arden Fair 4 reportedly an entirely different theatre than the current UA/Regal 6 Plex.

Scott, you are right, the new building with six screens opened on March 10th, 1982. Both 1969 and 1982 ads have pictures.

At least it looks like a new building in that 1982 ad. BTY I have over 100 ads for the Sacramento area and 1,400 for the State of California.

To clarify other entries…the original Arden Fair 4 (which I attended several times, by the way) was approximately in the spot where J.C. Penney is today. When UA took over the theatre, they expanded it with 2 large auditoriums, with 70MM capability (saw “Return of the Jedi” and “Batman” in 70MM during its initial runs there). When it was expanded you had to enter through a new main entrance in the rear of the mall while a long hallway would take you to the original 4 screens. When the current UA theatre opened several years later, the original was closed for the expansion to what Arden Fair Mall is today, a two-story shopping complex.
