No one at the company is as chatty or accessible as Bill Warren was when he owned his theaters here. At least not yet.
Several representatives of the Tennessee-based company haven’t returned phone calls for more than a week. There are a few questions Wichitans would like answered, though.
The most important one is whether their previously purchased gift certificates will still work under Regal ownership.
Never miss a local story.
We happened to have some of our own certificates and tried to use them and can report that yes, they still work like they always have.
Question No. 2: When will alcohol sales start again at the Old Town Warren? They’re already back.
There was a brief licensing issue at the downtown theater but not the east-side Warren.
Finally, will Regal maintain the quality that always seemed to be the most important issue for Bill Warren?
That remains to be seen, but as one Regal representative – who can’t be named – says: “We didn’t buy it because it was broke.”
