Posted on Thursday, January 28th, 2010 10:41 AM. Last Updated on Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 3:23 PM by Scott Jentsch

As a follow-up to the unconfirmed news that came out last week about Marcus Theatres wanting to build a new movie theater in downtown Milwaukee, the company announced this week that they will indeed be bringing the movies back to the city!

Marcus Corp. has signed a letter of intent to purchase a downtown development project site in the Park East area, bordered by Knapp Street, Water Street, and the Milwaukee River. Water Street is a popular entertainment district, with taverns, live theater, and eating establishments all within walking distance to the proposed theater complex.

The development will include a movie theater, office space, retail space, and a parking garage, which is essential for any downtown business.

No details are yet available, such as the number of screens for the new theater or the date when construction would begin.
