United Artists Theatre Corp. launched two theatres in December of 1986 in The Movies at Lake Howell on December 5 and The Movies at Republic Square on December 19th. On May 17, 1996, ownership of both theatres transferred to Muvico Theaters of Fort Lauderdale. Muvico purchased 41 other UA locations along with the Lake Howell and Republic Square. The circuit didn’t like what it saw at the Republic Square and ditched a renovation project.

Instead, Muvico opted out of a leasing agreement at the ten-year mark closing after just under five months of operation on October 3, 1996. Favorite Cinemas took on the venue the next day as its final owner. Favorite appears to have shuttered the Republic Square 6 on April 29, 1999.

Favorite Cinemas was Muvico’s discount brand. So that they wouldn’t have to explain that not all Muvico locations were fancy first run theatres, they just branded them “Favorite Cinemas”
