Both this theatre and it’s sister theatre across the Interstate highway (Westpoint Cinema) are going to be demolished sometime in the near future, I believe in 2007. The Marcus Corp. is building a brand new theatre just around the corner from the existing Westown Theatre, it will replace both of the existing theatres (Westown & Westpoint). I assume it will have at least one “Ultra-Screen” if not two. I’m not sure of the screen numbers for the new one. When I find out more I’ll post it.

This theater should now be listed as closed. Marcus has now opened the new 16 screen Majestic nearby.

many pages of grand opening ads.

Marcus gave free popcorn that weekend to keep people away from the brand-new General Cineams Mayfair 18 that opened on the same date.

Actually, Westown opened on 12/16/83 – you can see a very small preview ad (under Waukesha) in this 12/11/83 copy (page 90) of the Milwaukee Journal: View link

Unfortunately, they don’t have the 12/16/83 issue which probably contains a more significant ad.

And Westown went from being called “Westown 4” to “Westown 6” the weekend of 5/25/84-5/27/84…
