Warren Theatres is the only theater chain whose auditoriums all feature THX sound. Some of the screens at the West 21st street and East 13th street locations feature state-of-the-art digital 3D projection, while the rest feature digital projections. The downtown Wichita location features all of its screens in digital projection. Modeled after the classic art deco theaters in the 1950s, Warren Theatres' patrons find themselves immersed in marble floors and counter-tops, neon lights, and hand-painted murals throughout. Ticket salespeople, concession stand workers, ticket takers, and the theatre cleanup crew all wear 1950's style movie theatre uniforms.
A fan favorite at the Warren Theatres is the VIP balcony's reserved seating, with at-your-seat food delivery to a private bar just outside the auditorium. Warren Theatres received national acclaim when Flaunt Magazine named the chain the top theater builder in the nation.
Since the opening of the Warren World Class IMAX in Wichita on December 17, 2010, it has been the top grossing IMAX in North America. The Moore Warren IMAX opened February 24, 2012. Both theaters have 601 seats, a dedicated lobby, 82 ft IMAX 3D screen, a family restroom, and an elevator. The Warren World Class IMAX current size and design has both theaters made to be the largest digital IMAX screens in the world.
