The Warren reopens today. I heard that around $500,000 of exterior damage was sustained, but there was very little interior damage. Apparently the theatre is built with some sort of interior “membrane” to protect from water damage and it did its job well. I now know a good place to go in severe weather.

Yes, the hospital is just to the north of the theatre. Only a parking lot separates the IMAX from the south end of the medical center. Here’s another good aerial I ran across today that shows the whole path: http://apps.npr.org/moore-oklahoma-tornado-damage/

markp, as of yesterday, one of the interstate exits that is near to the Warren was still closed and the city/state is encouraging people to just stay away. I imagine that even if the theatre is ready, it will be difficult for patrons to get to it for a while. If nothing else, I think reopening quickly will be a symbol of triumph for the community which really loves this theatre.

I dont want to disagree with someone who might be from the area, but from the pictures I see on the news, A) how do they expect to get the theatre fixed in 2 days, and B) will there even be power or for that matter people in the area to go to the movies.

Live feed from Channel 9 says the theater is being used as a triage center.

Did not mention the sorely missed CT member…Lost Memory. May our prayers be with the people effected by this latest monster storm.

Amazing to see the almost immediate posts on CT and this theatre. Viewed the auditorium photos by former and sorely missed CT member and it brought tears to my eyes.

The weather channel is just now showing video of a tornado that they say hit the Moore warren Theatre, and from the video, it looks to be the same shot as the photo above.
