The Marcus Value Cinema - Oak Creek in Oak Creek, Wisconsin closed after the last movies were shown on Sunday, May 21, 2017.

The sale of the theater's building to The Ridge Community Church was originally announced in November 2016, with a closure expected some time in 2017.

The theater opened in 1984 as the first-run Oak Creek 10 Cinema. It later became the Value Cinema - Oak Creek and showed second-run movies at discounted prices. Marcus Theatres purchased Value Cinemas in 1996.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit other nearby theaters, such as the Marcus South Shore Cinemas, which is located just east of I-94 a block south of Rawson Avenue, and the Marcus Showtime Cinema in Franklin near Loomis Road and Highway 100. Ticket prices at those theaters are higher than at the Value Cinema, but the Showtime Cinema comes the closest at $5 matinees and $7 evening ticket prices. South Shore starts at $8.75 for adult matinee shows.

The End of Budget Movies in Milwaukee

Save for Marcus' promotions ($5 Tuesdays), the era of discounted movies in the Milwaukee area are basically over. The Silver Cinemas - Budget South closed in 2015, and no other theater in the area specializes in showing traditional "budget" shows. The trend in the industry actually is going in the other direction, adding more amenities at higher ticket prices.
