How will a small rural town of barely 40,000 people support such a large multiplex?

Moore isn’t as small as it seems strictly by looking at the population numbers. It was long ago absorbed into the Oklahoma City metro area. I would think that the theater will do pretty well since it will be within 20 minutes of Oklahoma City and the college town of Norman (where the best theater is now pretty out-of-date and worn out). I heard yesterday that another Harkins monsterplex is going to be built on the far northwest side of Oklahoma City.

As for the capacity, i’m only reporting what was on the sign. I guess Warren needs to do a bit more homework. Thanks for the link.

I e-mailed Warren with the Kinepolis link so they can remove that “World’s large 20-plex” tagline or add more than 7338 seats.

Please, who cares about another ugly monsterplex? It’s amazing more theaters are being built in an area of many deserted or dying monsterplexes. Futhermore, why are we wasting time and space on such “announcements”? Is it free advertising for Warren?
