Marcus Theatres, a division of The Marcus Corporation, announced today that it will purchase the Showtime Cinema in Franklin, Wisconsin. The theater is located near Highway 100 and Loomis Road, and is situated nearly equidistant from Marcus South Shore Cinemas in Oak Creek and Marcus Ridge Cinemas in New Berlin.
The purchase is expected to close on Wednesday, December 14th, and the theater will be closed on Thursday, December 15th to prepare for its first day as a Marcus theater on Friday, December 16th.
"As one of the leading theatre exhibitors in the U.S., we bring high-quality motion pictures, concession products, amenities and exceptional services to moviegoers throughout the Midwest. We are happy to have the opportunity to keep Showtime Cinema open and to make it possible for Franklin-area patrons to continue to see the latest first-run movies. We look forward to making improvements to our newest Marcus Theatres location," said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres.
Olson said there are no immediate plans for remodeling, but the theatre will receive some cosmetic changes in the coming months. "The biggest improvement will be all new digital projection and sound systems. Under Marcus Theatres' ownership, the theatre will retain the Showtime name and will benefit from the company's established marketing programs and operating systems. The Showtime Cinema will offer Marcus Theatres' extensive concession menu, including delicious popcorn, refreshing Pepsi soft drink products and a variety of candy and other snacks."
We are working with Marcus Theatres to update the information for Showtime Cinema on The BigScreen Cinema Guide, which will take place over the next couple of days. Watch the theater's Announcements page and Theater Information page for more details!
