Having been to a couple of the Warren Theater locations now, typically when visiting my family in Wichita, I've become a fan of ordering gift certificates from them for family holidays and birthdays. This year I've got 2 family members that will enjoy gift certificates from Warren Theater, my mom (dad will also get to enjoy them) and my sister-in-law.
Considering my sister-in-law is difficult to buy for (at least in my opinion) I figure this will give her a way to either get out with my brother (her hubby) for a night out alone, or to take the family. Her choice. Buying clothes for her doesn't work, and I don't know the stores she normally shops in. According to my brother each year there are new things she's "collecting" and I also know she's doing a lot of selling on Ebay so I'd rather whatever I get her not show up for sale online. This kind of gift gives her an experience instead of more "stuff" too and it's highly renewable. I could get it year after year and the offerings would always be different. My kind of awesome gift to give and to get!!!!!
I'm hoping someone will take the concept of the Warren Theater and bring it to Seattle. Being able to order dinner, drinks, and watch a movie out at a big screen theater is wonderful. There is one small theater like this in Seattle now but it's an expensive place for food. I'd go more often if we had a choice more like Warren Theater.
