Warren Theatres L.L.C. has broken ground on a $45 million project in Broken Arrow that the developer says will be the largest 18-screen move theater in the United States.
Located on Tucson Street between Aspen Avenue and Elm Place, the 150,000-square-foot cinema complex will feature director’s suites, balcony auditoriums, multiple dining options and a variety of innovations.
Similar to the Warren Theatre in Moore, the Broken Arrow project will also include its own distinctive design features created by its architect, Spangenberg Phillips Tice Architecture of Wichita, Kan. The general contractor, Crossland Construction Company Inc., is scheduled to complete construction by November 2014.
In a statement, Warren Theatres founder Bill Warren commented: “This will be the largest and most expensive motion picture theater in the country, but our prices will be competitive in the market. We’re going to raise the bar when it comes to going to the movies.”
Warren Theatres currently operates multi-screen movie theaters at seven locations, four of them operated under the Warren name, in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. In addition, the company operates several Palace Theatres and the Movie Machine in Wichita’s Towne West Mall.
