Well in the mail today I got a notice of Chapter eleven filing of United Artists and all of it's entities. I guess that all of the giants are begining to fall. I am just happy that it started there and not here

Nope I work for an ex-Regal theater that used to rent out auds. for United Artists Satellite Events and in the mail today I got a United States Bankruptcy Court notice from the District of Delaware outlining the procedures for their filing of Chapter 11 The date of the proceedings is September 5, 2000. This came as a shock to find in the mail because my current theater chain has no ties with UA at all anymore but to the best of my knowledge they are sending this out to anyone that may be owed money to U.A.

Everyone who ever had the slightest thing to do with UA is apparently getting that letter. I know a projectionist who worked for them 1 day two years ago who got the letter.
