Now you see me, is a very good movie, me likeey. recommend ;). However, Arclight happens to be my third visit and surely my last. Its a waist of money, $32 to be exact for 2 people and it not even "The man of Steal" nor in "3D". I can honestly say that I can go to a dollar theater and be satisfy for what it has as a whole. Truth to be told, Arclight needs a huge urgent update in all levels of the consumer satisfaction. I dont mined paying more than the average movie theater cost in the Los Angeles, Hollywood, Long Beach, and Glendale City areas. But to feel that the value is worth the price, that dont fly bye. Always when I go in from the hidden entrance, the person on the register so unhappy to see me (in my sarcastic way of saying un friendly customer service) and still have the nerves to ask me if I am a member or if I would like to be one. My answer has always been "NO, do you?" personally, (I have Regal membership, I got AMC Studs membership and believe me its way worth it and much more considerate than the Arclight) Google it to compare and Arclight will never be my choice. The movies is upstairs witch is fine however the bathrooms need updates; from there small stalls to the old fashion turn the knob sink to wash your hand its perhaps un necessary but because its truly expensive it fails to satisfy there grooming customers. Food Is a small choice menu witch s fine but yet expensive and unsatisfying price. I do realize its a movie theater so I expect high cost value on popcorn and beverage, but please, they go over board without the extra mile; L-Soda with a sprinkle cinnamon and I do mean sprinkle like almost no taste of cinnamon on my average cost CinnamonPretzel total- $10.25. Then I was please to have an arrange seating and there seats are comfortable, however the seats on each row leave no space to even cross your legs because of the seats on the front, but that can be the least of my satisfaction. Then the movie was over and were heading towards the exit, but theres not an organize way of exiting because heading back down stairs is covered by an organize rope that suppose to block those who are coming up for there move, and thus makes it easier for the ticket checker, but those who are done and waiting to leave; "like me", the "correct" exit way was block and my rood self was force to hop the rope to walk my way down the 45 steps stairs. (escalator up yes, escalator down no) I do understand there location pronounce them to be such a hit, its Hollywood, and the fact its place as a tours attraction, and has competition such as the Chinese theater per say, but besides there location and expensive entrance, they dont portrait any elegancy or update technology to satisfy there consuming customers. Lets compare to the movie theaters of Regal LA LIVE or the AMC on City Walk, or even the Grove or the Americanas, theres no comparison 10x better service and updated elegancy in all criteria and yet Arclight expensive and unpleasant for the price. They have two choices, lower there price like the rest of there competitors (or even less) or update there presentation.
Going to watch a movie at the ArcLight Cinemas is for the most part, a great experience. It will lighten your wallet or purse a bit but the old saying, "you get what you pay for" most definitely applies here. You are paying for a premium movie going experience and that is exactly what you get. Reserved seating is such a wonderful thing that you find yourself wondering why it took so long for a theater to implement it and why all theaters are not doing it. I think that the answer to both those questions is the same thing. Reserved seating would not work and could not last if different seating locations within the theater offered a wildly varying experience. That is not the case at the ArcLight though. There simply is not a bad seat in the house (not even in the front row). The seating is very comfortable but what soon becomes obvious is that when the plans for this theater complex were drawn up, great thought and care was given to the design of each theater to ensure that every seat offered both great visual and audio experiences. It is quite amazing at just how well the designers of this complex accomplished that. While a premium visual and audio experience is a huge part of this movie going experience, it is still only one part of the overall experience. The ArcLight also has a restaurant and bar within the theater complex. You might be quick to dismiss the restaurant as simply an added gimmick to try and make this complex stand out from other theater complexes but fortunately the management at the ArcLight never saw it that way. They have always taken their restaurant seriously and have maintained a level of service and quality that is far above anything you would expect from a restaurant that was inside a theater complex. I think they had a vision from the very start that the ArcLight theater complex was to be the one complex that people thought of when they thought about a date night at the movies. From the premium seating experience to the good quality restaurant to the higher quality items at their concession stand to the overall cleanliness of the whole complex (the cleanest theater bathrooms I have ever seen), the ArcLight offers an experience that is going to make you look real good on date night. There are many different theaters within this complex so let him or her pick the movie as well. You dont want to waste any capitol you may have gained by bringing your date to such a high end movie going experience by choosing the wrong movie. One last thing...there is a multi-story parking garage that services the ArcLight and other retail shops and restaurants that are located within the overall shopping complex. The entrance is located on Ivar Ave and parking should not be an issue since this is a very large parking structure.
Arclight Hollywood is awesome because it is large, they have a dome theatre, and they always have something cool in the lobby for their main attraction. When they were showing the Grand Budapest Hotel they had a miniature version set up. For Avengers: Age of Ultron they had a miniature Hulkbuster as well as several costumes from the movie. Currently they have costumes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens on display. Parking is always easy if not cheap. They share a parking garage with their neighbouring businesses. They validate for 4 hours for $3 and then it is $3 every 30 minutes after that. Their bathrooms are large and clean (for the most part) and the theatre seats are pretty comfy. If a movie has a limited release in LA before they do a nationwide release, usually one of the only theatres that will get it early is this particular Arclight. This one is currently showing The Revenant before it has its wide release, for example. They also do special screenings that might not be available elsewhere. I came here recently to watch The Hateful Eight in 70mm, which was pretty cool. The only downside is that they seem to be having a lot of technical difficulties this year. When I came to see Avengers: Age of Ultron they had several problems. The entire time they were showing previews, there was no audio. And then the movie started and our audio came on, but the lights came on as well. Finally they seemed to have everything figured out... only for there to be visual problems halfway through the movie. Good thing I had already planned to see that movie multiple times, or else I would have been really mad. Recently there was an uproar over "spoilers" during the Star Wars: The Force Awakens screening because the projector messed up and moved forward to a different scene later in the movie. So just keep in mind that there might be some issues while watching a movie here, but overall the experience here tends to be pretty good. I dont come here often since the Pasadena one is closer to me, but I do love seeing what they have in the lobby here whenever I come.
