The Town Board in the Town of Brookfield, Wisconsin approved the proposed nine-screen movie theater planned for The Corners of Brookfield shopping center., over objections and a threat of legal action by Marcus Theatres. The movie theater chain's parent company owns a small interest in the shopping center, and also operates a theater within a mile of the shopping center and just announced plans for a new movie theater at the Brookfield Square shopping center a few miles east.

The news comes from an article published today in BizTimes Milwaukee:

Despite objections and a threat of a lawsuit by The Marcus Corporation, the Town of Brookfield approved Miami, Florida-based Silverspot Cinema’s plan to operate a nine-screen movie theater at The Corners mixed-use development.


On Tuesday, the Town Board voted 4-1 to approve the theater, with Supervisor Ryan Stanelle voting no.

The Marcus Corporation issued the following statement after the vote:

“The Marcus Corporation is disappointed in this decision, as the language in our development agreement is clear and deliberate,” the statement said. “It does not allow an amendment to the final agreed to plan without Marcus’s consent. We have no choice but to enforce our rights under the development agreement and Wisconsin law.”

We probably haven't heard the last of this battle, but it's too early to tell if the ensuing drama and the conclusion will be worthy of making into a movie.
