Finally, answers to a few Warren Theatres questions

One of the most frequent questions after Bill Warren sold his Warren Theatres was, “Will our gift certificates still work?” The answer is yes.

There’s one thing that’s indisputably clear a week into Regal Entertainment Group’s ownership of Warren Theatres:

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.

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.”
