The VIP grand opening was Dec. 10, 1991.
Not only closed, but the interior has now been gutted and floor leveled for retail.
Theatre closed in September, 2006
The lobby of this closed theater is currently being used as a hiring center for the new Walmart Supercenter being erected across the expressway. Nothing else going on with it as far as I can see.
CLOSED! The Marcus South Towne Cinema closed it’s doors on Sunday, September 17, 2006. Back in August Marcus officials stated that the South Towne cinema would close “later this year”, this was in the same story about the development of a new Marcus complex in the Tradewinds Business Center. This closure will leave a bit of a void for Southeast Madison untill the new cinema opens, the date for which has not been determined. The new complex has not yet begun construction, so its future existence is not assured.
Marcus Theaters has announced that the South Towne will be closed later this year. This is because they are constructing a new multiplex a few miles away at a business park. This new theater will have 1484 seats with 12 screens. Provisions are being made to add an additional 3 screens at a later date.
The closure of this theater was inevitable. This will leave only one bargain house in Madison.
The South Towne is now a second-run $2 bargain house. The deterioration of the area around the mall where it is located made it a less-than-attractive destination for first-run patrons.
