Walking distance from our hotel and good selection of shows. Staff extremely pleasant making for an overall great time. Only negative is it comes at a slightly higher cost, around $3-$4 higher than other theaters in the area.

For bigger box office movies that just open up this is my go to place as it's always easy to get a reserved seat for not that much more than a normal movie ticket where you have to stand in line for a couple hours with all the fan people.

When Arclight in UTC first opened, it was one of the two locations in north-county San Diego that allowed for reserved seating. The first was Cineopolis, which offers a premium experience for a premium price. Arclight was much more like AMC, Edwards, or Ultrastar in that the theaters were "okay", but at least you could show up and be sure... More

Arclight is the best theater. It has reserved seating and some 21+ theaters in which you can enjoy a drink while watching the movie. I've been to several arclights but the staff at this one is especially great.

Best part of Arclight? 21+ theaters, with a bar right next door! No kids and reserved seats. What could be better?

Been to ArcLight a few times and it is always clean. Seats are comfortable just wish that they recline but still comfortable. One of my best movie theatres to go to.

Fun way to watch a movie. Popcorn with real butter, a glass of wine and a comfy seat. Worth the few extra bucks. Best to buy tickets early on-line so that you get to pick the best pre-assigned seats.

Seats are pre-assigned, which ends up being a little annoying. If you have an outside seat and get there early, you end up having to stand and let people walk past you constantly. They don't allow drinks in theaters showing anything rated lower than an "R."

They took a terrible location and made it into a comfortable, clean and easy to get to theater. Current movies, lots of choices and a great staff
