All Stadium Seating, Digital Sound Theatre Planned for Growing Suburban Area

MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 22, 2003--Marcus Theatres Corporation, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), today announced plans to build a new movie theatre in Saukville, Wisconsin, a fast-growing area north of Milwaukee.

"The new Saukville Cinema will create an entertainment destination in an area that is experiencing dynamic growth and increasing business development. Located just off Interstate 43, the new theatre will be ideally situated for families from throughout the area," said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres(R).

"The Saukville Cinema will feature all of the amenities that moviegoers expect - stadium seating, digital sound, big curved screens, comfortable seats in every auditorium, self-serve soft drink dispensers - and the latest first-run films. It will showcase the best new technologies available in the industry, including online print-at-home ticketing, an e-mail showtime service and lobby entertainment on flat-screen monitors. The theatre will be among the first to feature Marcus Theatres' exciting new '2010' interior design concept, which uses elegant finishes such as warm woods, rich stone floors and granite counters to create an upscale environment for moviegoers," Olson said.

Construction of the new Saukville Cinema is scheduled to begin this spring, with an opening anticipated in late 2004.
