Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation, said in a statement : “From one small movie theatre in Ripon, Wisconsin to a national leader in lodging and entertainment, The Marcus Corporation has celebrated many meaningful milestones over the past 83 years. We are proud to be included among an elite group of companies who have traded on the NYSE for 25 or more years. On behalf of our board of directors and senior management team, we are grateful to our shareholders for their confidence and to our associates whose hard work and dedication has driven continued innovation, service and results.”
