Hollywood

A Hollywood favorite since 2002, the ArcLight offers comfortable assigned seating (cushy, reclining, leg room for days), state-of-the-art sight and sound, fantastic snack bars and, for some Dionysian indulgence, an in-house café-bar. The programming is an astute mix of first-run flicks, indies, foreign fare and premieres; and alcohol is allowed in some screenings. As an added bonus, there are always fun cinephile treats on display (original costumes, architectural models, etc.). It's the most appealing modern multiplex in LA, but is also a classic due to the Cinerama Dome, a fabulous and unique domed movie theater that opened in 1963. Note that parking is usually pretty rough: there's a garage that validates, but it gets pretty packed, so allow plenty of time to find a space and don't expect to escape quickly.

    The bearded-hipster image of Brooklyn has gone so global, it’s almost miraculous that a film would succeed in making the borough seem exotic again—by reaching back to its blue-collar Dodgers-loving past. That’s one of the many feats of Irish direc...

    There’s a peculiar sense of anxiety that accompanies the watching of a Nicholas Sparks adaptation; it’s never if tragedy strikes, but when. The opening scene of The Choice occurs in a hospital, with handsome young veterinarian Travis (Benjamin Wal...

    More a core part of modern-day myth than film history, the Rocky series has morphed into something sweaty and slightly embarrassing: an endless series of wisdom grunts, anthemic trumpet fanfares, politically symbolic opponents and Reagan-era showd...

The Arclight is one of my favorite places in LA to see a movie.  It's always exciting to see the classic domed cinema rise up from Sunset Boulevard.  The restaurant inside the theater has a surprising good menu as well with plenty to choose from!
