Movie Tavern® by Marcus Opens First Wisconsin Location at Brookfield Square in Brookfield, Wis.

October 14, 2019 GMT


Marcus Theatres ®, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), today announced it opened its first Movie Tavern ® by Marcus in Wisconsin on Friday, October 11, 2019. Located at Brookfield Square, a one million-square-foot shopping center in Brookfield, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee, this entertainment concept features popular programs and offerings from Marcus Theatres. It also brings exciting new options to area guests.

“Having all three of our theatre brands — Marcus Theatres, Bistro Plex℠ and Movie Tavern — in our hometown is important to us,” said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman, president and CEO of Marcus Theatres. “In February, we acquired the Movie Tavern circuit, and eight months later, we are excited to bring it to life at Brookfield Square. The new theatre will provide our guests with even more choices for their moviegoing experience.”

Unique offerings at the new Movie Tavern at Brookfield Square, include:

Movie Tavern at Brookfield Square has eight auditoriums, each with laser projection and comfortable DreamLounger℠ recliner seating. One of the eight auditoriums is a Super Screen DLX ® experience, with an oversized screen, immersive Dolby ® Atmos ® sound and optional heated recliner seating.

A full-service bar and Food and Drink Center adds to the experience, and with food delivery to every seat in the building, guests can enjoy the total moviegoing experience. In addition, value offerings that guests have come to appreciate at Marcus Theatres are also part of the new Movie Tavern theatre. These include $5 Movie Tuesdays, Student Thursdays, Young at Heart ® and the Magical Movie Rewards℠ loyalty program.

Although this new property is the first Movie Tavern in Wisconsin, it is the 23 rd overall in 10 states. Along with plenty of parking and entrances from both the mall and exterior, this concept provides Milwaukee-area guests a new option for moviegoing and a place to host business meetings, group events, team building activities and more. The theatre’s event team works directly with groups to plan a completely customized experience.
