Marcus Theaters have announced that they are looking at a different location for this theater complex in Sun Prairie, WI, about 2 miles northeast of the previous site announced.

Trolleyguy on March 17, at 2: The original 4 screens were built in Palace, Roxy, Ritz and Rialto.

NO part of this building is only 10 years old anymore except the front facade. Still in the 80s, the final four theatres down that wing were added, along with an additional vending stand and advance ticket office.

With snacks and soda, a movie date can cost more than a sushi dinner. Marcus has announced plans to upgrade the Ultrascreen auditorium. Recent comments view all 14 comments.

It was the manager advising everyone not to use cell phones, smart phones, etc. Marcus owned and operated both for several years after building Eastgate and sold it to another company, where it was operated as a budget cinema until eventually closing. Just another maze of movies and overpriced popcorn topped with imitation butter.
