The United Artists Starport 9 opened along with the Circle Centre Mall on September 8, 1995. Here is the Post-Tribune description of the Circle Centre Mall: “Completed at a cost of $319 million, the retail-entertainment complex, with its eight historic facades, covers three city blocks and connects via skywalks to the state capital complex, convention center and six major hotels".
The Starport name was a registered trademark of United Artists Theatres. It was used to designate UA Theatres combined with a video arcade and a virtual reality ride simulator called Showscan. Ten locations were planned but the only known ones that opened were in Albuquerque, Austin, Baltimore, and Littleton and the trademark was cancelled in 2003. In San Jose, space was designated for a Starport in the downtown UA, which opened in February of 1996, but the Starport never opened due to low attendance and financial difficulties.
In 2002 UA Circle Centre 9 became part of Regal Entertainment Group. The theater most recent complete renovation was by TK Architects.
