SHAY WE RECEIVED A TIP TO THE NEWS ROOM ABOUT THE CLOSURE OF THE UNITED ARTISTS THEATERS. SHAY: IT WAS RECENTLY PURCHASED BY NORTHPARK MALL. WHEN I WENT BY THE THEATER THIS MORNING– I SAW WORKERS PACKING UP A TRUCK. ALL THE LIGHTS IN THE BUSINESS ARE NOW OFF. I SPOKE TO SOME SHOPPERS AT NORTHPARK– WHO SAY THEY ARE SAD TO SEE THE THEATER GO. Sierra Miller/Shopper: “It was so convenient to people who stay around here. It’s just a lot of memories to hear they closed it. That’s sad.” SHAY: WE REACHED OUT TO NORTHPARK ABOUT THE CLOSURE. THEY RELEASED A STATEMENT SAYING… SHAY: “WE PURCHASED THE MOVIE THEATER A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO. UNITED ARTISTIS HAS CEASED OPERATIONS AS OF 2019. THIS IS AN EXCITING TIME. IT PLACES NORTHPARK ONE STEP CLOSER TOWARDS OUR GOAL OF CURATING A DESTINATION FOR ENTERTAINMENT DINING AND RETAIL FOR THE COMMUNITY.” SHAY WE ALSO REACHED OUT TO THE CITY OF RIDGELAND.
