The Role of Έχει

Is έχει always the right word to use when describing a noun as "existing"? Or is there another way?

Below are two sentences with έχει, one uses it as "to have", the other as "to exist".

"He has two daughters"
"Έχει δυο κορες."

"Tonight, there is a good film."
"Απόψε, έχει ενα καλό έργο."

    There is another word -> Υπάρχει which means to exist.

    For example: There is a pharmacy at the town centre.
    Υπάρχει ένα φαρμακείο στο κέντρο
    (Literally: there exists a pharmacy at the town centre)
