In October 1995, Muvico sold all of its operating theaters and two leases, except for the Palm Harbor 10. The purpose of the sale was to enable Muvico to develop a more efficient corporate structure with an investor group committed to aggressively growing the circuit.
In May 1996, Muvico purchased five theaters representing 43 screens in South and Central Florida and in October 1996, purchased an additional eight-screen theater in South Florida. The Company opened its first megaplex in Orlando, Florida, called Muvico Pointe 21 in July of 1998 and in September opened an 18-plex in Pompano Beach, Florida.
In March of 1999, the Company opened the Paradise 24 in Davie, Florida.
In 2000 Muvico exploded with the addition of five megaplex theaters totaling 104 screens. Opening the Palace 20 in Boca Raton, Florida, in June; Centro Ybor 20 in Tampa, Florida, in October; BayWalk 20 in St. Petersburg, Florida, in November and both the Egyptian 24 in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Parisian 20 at City Place in West Palm Beach, Florida, in December.
Muvico Theaters continued its growth this year with the opening of the Peabody Place 22 Theaters in Memphis, Tennessee, on June 15th, 2001. Muvico Theaters’ average number of screens per location is 19.5, the highest in the industry.

History of Muvico
Muvico Theaters started in 1984 with the acquisition of Movie Center 3 theater in Coral Springs, Florida. Between 1985 to 1995, Muvico bought or built eight theaters totaling 59 screens; the California Club Six in North Miami was among these eight theaters. However, in 1995, Muvico sold all of its theaters and three leases, except for the Palm Harbor 10 located in Palm Harbor, Florida (which is the oldest Muvico theater operating today) The purpose of that sale was to allow Muvico to operate more efficiently against its competition — namely, Regal Entertainment Group, Cinemark, and AMC Theatres. A year later, Muvico bought five theaters from United Artist Theaters in South and Central Florida, totaling 43 screens. Muvico built its first megaplex theater in 1998 in Orlando; it is called Muvico Pointe 21. They subsequently opened a 18-screen theater in Pompano Beach, Florida, and a 24-screen megaplex in Davie, Florida. In 2000, Muvico opened four more megaplexes in Florida and one in Arundel Mills in Hanover, Maryland, totaling 104 screens. In 2001, Muvico opened the Peabody Place 22 in Tennessee and now has a total of 233 screens, when the theaters in Estero, Boynton Beach and Chicago open, their screen count will increase to 281.
Muvico is constructing a 16 screen theater in Estero, Florida, 14 screen theater in Boynton Beach, Florida, and also has begun construction on a 18 screen theater in Chicago which will feature a Muvico Premier level concept. Muvico is also going forward with plans to build theaters in the Pennsylvania and the New Jersey markets. Muvico is also expanding to Sarasota.
