Does anyone know of any of the larger theater chains that open older theaters that have been closed and turn them into discount theaters?

In Wisconsin Marcus, Theatres and Landmark run budget theaters in addition to their first run cinemas.

Marcus runs at least three discounts that I know of, including Value Cinema in Oak Creek, WI,

Yes, but did they buy them closed with the intent to reopen as discount operations? That was the question.

Considering the nature of the business today, not to mention the cost of digital, I would be very surprised to hear that a chain would even consider it,

Most of the chains only turn some to discount only in markets they already are in when they upgrade to a larger multiplex in that same market, especially if they own the property.Its mostly to keep out other competition.cinemark and Carmine do this. I know of a Carmine around here that did this and they don't plan on converting the discount to digital, they will sell off the building to someone in a different industry and likely have a contract stipulation that it can't be turned into a theater. The chains aren't interested in building or entering a market anymore unless its a first run multiplex likely 10+screens.
