Moore theater to shift back to entertainment

Oklahoman Published: May 22, 2013

MOORE (AP) — A movie theater damaged by the Moore tornado plans to reopen in a week.

Bill Warren, owner of the Warren Theatre multiplex, said Wednesday that the building sustained between $500,000 and $1 million in damage.

Warren says most of the damage was to the exterior, though there was some water damage inside. He says architects and structural engineers have inspected the facility and found it to be sound.

Between 150 and 200 people were inside the theater when the tornado ripped through Moore. Warren says no one in the theater was injured.

Warren says the theater cost $40 million to build and that its walls and hallways were constructed with concrete to give it high structural integrity.

Warren says repairs will be complete before the planned May 29 reopening.
