The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that the Marcus Westgate Cinema in downtown Racine will close when the Marcus Cinema at the Renaissance that is currently under contruction opens in November. The Regency Mall location will remain open, however:

Carlo Petrick, speaking for the Marcus Corp., said in an interview last week that the five-screen theater will go dark this fall.

The Regency Cinema, a Marcus property at Regency Mall with eight screens, will stay open.

The new theater will have 13 screens, including an Ultra-screen that measures some 70 feet wide, and is expected to draw audiences from the neighborhoods around the Westgate as well as from the rest of the county.

The new theater will be located near I-94 and Hwy 20 in Sturtevant in the Renaissance business park. Construction was announced in March, and at that time, the ultimate fate of the two existing locations was unknown.
