Marcus Theaters announced today that it is planning to sell Value Oak Creek Cinema to The Ridge Community Church, which is planning to convert it to a second location.

The value cinema, located at 6912 S. 27th St., has been in operation for 20 years and will continue to operate until the sale is complete.

The Greenfield-based non-denominational church is planning to remodel the building and open its Oak Creek campus in fall 2017.

“We are excited for the opportunity to serve the people of Oak Creek and surrounding communities, said The Rev. Mark Weigt. “We currently have several hundred attendees from this area of metro Milwaukee and we look forward to serving even more of our new neighbors at both our services and through volunteer work and community outreach.”

Milwaukee-based The Marcus Corp., the parent company for Marcus Theatres, has not announced a sale price for the deal. The property is assessed by Milwaukee County at $2.45 million

The 21 employees at the Value Oak Creek Cinema will be offered jobs at Marcus Theaters other locations, according to Marcus.
