Warren said the company ended up spending $2 million more than budgeted.

He said there will be more than 50 tons of imported marble, custom heated seats, the most expensive sound system being used in movie theaters today and the biggest movie screens in Green Country.

Seventy people have been hired to staff the new theater and about 130 more employees will be hired for the Broken Arrow location.

Warren said the Moore location has been successful, and he is pleased with it, but the Broken Arrow location will be bigger and better.
