Theater photo, copyright 2003 SVJ Designs, LLC.The Business Journal of Greater Milwaukee is reporting today that the bank that holds the loan on the Showtime Cinema in Franklin, Wisconsin has petitioned the courts for a receiver for the property in an effort to sell it:

The theater, owned by Franklin Cinemas LLC, is in default on a $6.5 million loan made in 2005, according to the lawsuit filed by Green Bay-based Associated. A group is interested in buying the theater for more than $4.8 million, the filing said.
