A digital IMAX auditorium is being added to the 21st Street Warren Theatre. The 600-seat IMAX is expected to open by mid-December. The project will include remodeling and updating the theater’s existing 17 auditoriums as well.
A June 3 item on the Wichita Eagle web site includes three renderings of the project.
An August 20 Wichita Eagle item has photos depicting the progress of construction.
This theatre recently converted to all digital projection. In addition all auditoriums have THX sound and waterfall curtains, including the 600 seat IMAX auditorium.
I was in the IMAX auditorium this afternoon and saw the “Avengers.” It was the 3rd week of the run and the place was packed! The line of sight is excellent as the stadium seating is staggered so no heads block your view and you also have plenty of leg room. There are no commercials before the feature, and they are proud of that fact. A manager greets the audience just before the show starts and announces the policies of the theatre. A nice light show is then projected on the waterfall curtain as the 2001 theme is played as the curtain raises it is a nice effect with the multi-colored lights. Some of the side lighting fixtures look a little plastic, but for the art-deco theme that may all one could get as well. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. Restrooms had lines in them after the show was over. For those of us in Kansas it is the only good screen to watch a movie on.
This theatre has been sold to Regal. http://www.kansas.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/carrie-rengers/article151485057.html
