TOWN OF BROOKFIELD — Preliminary plans for a nine-screen movie theater at The Corners of Brookfield will be discussed by Town of Brookfield administration next week with more details likely to be revealed.

Brookfield Town Administrator Tom Hagie said the movie theater is in a very conceptual stage, but more details may be announced during Monday’s Plan Commission meeting at 7 p.m. and the Town Board meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Both will be held at Town Hall, 645 N. Janacek Road.

The Corners is an upscale retail and residential development that is anchored by a Von Maur department store. First opening in the spring, the development has added a Sendik’s Food Market, a Café Hollander, L.L.Bean and Francesca’s. Set to open in the coming weeks are Arhaus and CycleBar.

The 400,000-square-foot development was built on the former site of a Menards and a strip mall that housed an Applebee’s and the West Point Cinema until it closed in 2005 when it was replaced by Marcus Theatres constructing The Majestic in the Town of Brookfield.

Hagie said a specific location for the movie theater in The Corners development has yet to be selected. It would be part of a 38-foot vertical addition to The Corners. He said no operator name has been announced.

“We are just trying to see if it would work in there,” Hagie said.
