Opened on January 29, 1971 as a 1,023-seat single-screen theatre in the then-new Brementowne Mall, the Bremen Theatre moved to the other side of the shopping center during the mid-1970’s, when it was rebuilt as a quad.
It began to decline in popularity when a much larger and more modern multiplex opened at the Orland Square Mall a couple miles away a few years later. The Bremen was increased to six small screens around this time, and switched from first-run to second-run fare and bargain prices in order to compete.
After many years as Tinley Park’s only movie house, and building a steady and loyal customer base, its owners, Value Theatres, recently sold the Bremen to the Menard’s home improvement store chain, which operates a store next door to the multiplex. Menard’s plans to expand into the former theater space, which will be completely gutted.
The theater went out in style, the weekend of July 25-27th, 2003, with dollar admission and concessions, causing lines to snake into the now nearly-empty shopping center.
