“Nice place but not as 'fabulous' as they'd like to think”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The Hollywood Arclight is the nicest and you'll definitely see celebrity sightings there, there will be screenings where the filmmakers who made the movies will attend, etc. But we went the other day to the Arclight in Sherman Oaks and, while the people working there were nice, the automatic ticket machine didn't work and we were kept waiting until after our movie started and had to buy tickets in the food line. It felt a bit disorganized. All in all both theatres are okay

“Expensive but worth it for a new movie”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Imagine a brand new popular movie that you want to see opening night. Forget camping out or getting to the theater hours early- simply buy your tickets and pick your exact seat from the convenience of your own home! Then glide in a few minutes before the movie starts into your pre-selected seats in the middle of the theater! The theaters all have wonderful seats, great sound and an easy way to see the best new movies. It may cost a few extra bucks, but well worth it for new movies.

“Pricey but very nice”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Great place to see movies. A bit more expensive for tickets, but you can buy them in advance and pick your seats. It's assigned seating so that is peace of mind. Great refreshments and they even have a bar where you can chill with friends before or afterwards.

“THE BEST”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is the BEST way to see a movie. They care about the quality of the pictures and is a much nicer setting to enjoy a movie. Every staff is friendly and helpful too.
