Marcus Corp. eyes theater, 20-story building on river in Park East
MILWAUKEE — The Marcus Corporation is working on development plans in Milwaukee’s Park East Corridor.

CEO Greg Marcus pledged in September to open an movie theater downtown — but said the area doesn’t have the residential density to support one.
Marcus Corporation previously tried to build a theater downtown, but the plans fell through.
