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.

I love coming here to see a movie. Parking is a breeze in the attached structure and if you get there a little too early, you can take a seat inside the bar/restaurant and have a drink or two. Seating isn't usually a problem because you can get your tickets in advance. Overall, it makes moviegoing a delight!
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 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!
