Marcus TheatresĀ® to Manage Upscale, Five-Screen Theatre
in Midtown Crossing Urban Development Project in Omaha, Neb.
Company brings stylish entertainment to Omaha

MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE <http://www.businesswire.com> )-- Marcus Theatres Corporation, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), today announced that it has signed an agreement to design and manage a five-screen, four-level upscale theatre and entertainment complex in Midtown Crossing at Turner Park, a 15-acre, mixed-use urban development project located in Omaha, Neb. The new theatre is scheduled to open in November 2009.

“The Midtown Crossing theatre complex will be unique to Omaha, as well as the entire region. The theatre will feature unique public spaces with upscale finishes, along with new and sophisticated architectural detailing highlighted by marble and tall vistas of glass,” said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres.

“Guests will enter the theatre on the ground level and take an escalator to the second level, which will feature a trendy, posh cocktail lounge. This sophisticated, contemporary lounge will be the perfect place for adults to relax and unwind while enjoying the sights of the city. The second level will also feature meeting space for private events or business meetings,” said Olson.

“As guests proceed to the third floor, they will enter the theatre level, which consists of the box office, a lobby area featuring a baby grand piano and five luxurious auditoriums. In each auditorium, guests will be able to experience an outstanding in-theatre dining experience supported by table service from a full wait staff.

The extensive menu features appetizers, meals, desserts and an outstanding selection of beer, wine, cocktails and specialty drinks. Each auditorium also has traditional theatre seating so guests have the option of enjoying the latest Hollywood blockbusters without dining during the film,” added Olson.

Olson noted that the highlight of the new Midtown Crossing theatre is the fifth auditorium, which will be the largest seating capacity and includes VIP reserved seating in the balcony level. “The balcony level will include plush, wide seats and an extraordinary level of personal service for guests who have selected exactly the seats in which they wish to sit. The fifth auditorium is the premiere experience in moviegoing.” In addition, the mezzanine level, from which people will enter the reserved VIP balcony section, will feature another stylish, urban lounge with Omaha skyline views.

“Marcus Theatres is looking forward to creating an entertainment destination for residents of Omaha’s most exciting new urban neighborhood,” said Olson. “Guests will be able to experience an outstanding in-theatre dining experience in each of our auditoriums, be wined and dined in our sophisticated, metropolitan cocktail lounges and enjoy the latest blockbusters in comfortable, relaxing seats with state-of-the-art digital projection and sound. This new stylish theatre will be a treat for residents and guests of Midtown Crossing and Omaha.”

**80 Dodge**

Work is underway to make the Beverly Hill Plaza look identicle to the 80 Dodge development.

**Riverfront Place**

Pedestrian bridge landing is currently under construction.

Ground breaking for the second tower is supposed to occur Feb 2009.
Dicon has been selected as the contractor.
55% sold......NEED 65% SOLD before they begin.

**Downtown Ballpark**

The Pinnacle / Swanson is almost all (if not all) the way demolished. Once this is turned into a parking lot, I believe the construction can begin on the Ball park. Could be missing some details though.

These updates are pretty generic, so you may already know them all.

Anyone know any others?

Destruction of the old Union Pacific building has been completed for the most part, and a start date for construction on the WallStreet Tower has yet to be announced.
