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.

    This eye-catching if frenetic follow-up to Tim Burton’s 2010 Alice in Wonderland brings back most of the same team (though Burton is only producing this time), and the same high-energy, bucketful-of-digital-effects approach. Mia Wasikowska returns...

    There’s a wince-inducing scene in the middle of X-Men: Apocalypse that says just about everything you need to know about this sprawling superheroic mess. It’s 1983, and a group of teenage mutants walk out of a screening of Return of the Jedi, argu...

    Does any of this sound familiar? Two iconic heroes duking it out over two-and-a-half epic hours. Angsty agonizing over collateral damage. Cameos from multiple costumed crusaders, just to make sure we’re suitably hyped for the next 10 movies. Lucki...

What a great place to see a movie! Being able to book your seat in advance makes the entire experience so much more enjoyable. I recently saw The Force Awakens at the ArcLight and high quality display and sound made it worth the slightly higher than average ticket price.

The Arclight in Hollywood is one of the best movie theaters in LA! Each screening room is very large that offers a lot of seating. My favorite part of the theater is that they offer drinks at the bar which you can take with you in the movie. What more do you need?:)

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!
