Arclight was the highlight!

  • Feb 27, 2011
I really enjoyed seeing a feature at the new Archlight. Yes it is more expense but what isn't these days especially if renovation is in the mix. I was pleasingly surprised when before the movie started a staff member came out and announced in person no microphone what we were going to be watching along with who the stars were and accolades. It gave the event class like you were going to be watching a play.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

You Just Made My Low Key Movie Theater, Expensive!
I'm a huge fan of going to the movies, well I was... It's a great time to get away and not hove to focus on anything but a film on a huge screen with surround sound. It seems to be that the new "hip" thing to do with movie theaters is make them as high tech and hip as possible. To be honest, I'm not a fan. Don't get me wrong, Avatar in 3D was amazing, but I don't want to watch every film in 3D. I enjoy the old style, non 3D versions of films. If the movie is good you …

About this business


  • All-reserved seating makes waiting in "hold-out" lines a thing of the past, and there's no more need to rush to the auditorium to save seats. You can even select your seats and purchase and print your tickets online or at automated kiosks.
  • Film programming is directed to the discerning moviegoer, with a mix of new-release blockbusters, specialty, and retrospective product. In addition, films are augmented from time to time with speaker presentations. Be sure to review the "Now Playing" and "Coming Soon" sections to see what's currently planned.
  • The experience inside the cinema auditorium is ArcLight's focal point. Designed to exceed THX standards of presentation excellence, ArcLight auditoriums begin with a "black box" design aesthetic which favors undistracted viewing over opulence, and feature the best in sight and sound technology, allowing films to be presented as the filmmakers intend. Auditorium comfort levels are unsurpassed. All cinema chairs are 3 inches wider than current megaplex standards, with 6 inches more legroom. Even the retractable armrests are "double-wide".
  • The ArcLight café bar is perfect for a quick meal before or after a movie, but can be enjoyed just for meeting friends for martinis and appetizers, a business lunch, or animated discussions over dessert and coffee.
  • The snack bar features our signature popcorns - movie-theater-style with real butter on request, and our fresh-made ...
