“Arclight Dome”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Arclight Hollywood has a theater called the Dome. Go see a movie here. The sound quality is supurb, seats are comfortable, shaped as a cathedral or dome, the screen is huge, and good popcorn. Parking is pricy if you dont get validated. $3 or $20 yikes

“Go where the people who love to watch movies go!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

My favorite time to see a movie is the midnight showing opeing day. The people attending that show LOVE their movies. They SIT and watch the show without talking, texting or wandering the aisles. Whenever possible I attend that showing at the Arclight Hollywood in the Cinerama Dome.

Reserved seating, in all Arclight theaters, promises you the seat you want for your best viewing opportunity.
Arclight offers the finest in sound and visual quality. They offer the finest in food. Their popcorn is cooked in coconut oil. If you have enjoyed it there it is very hard to eat popcorn anywhere other than Arclight.
They offer a fine restaurant/bar inside the main theater building. They also have a few theaters where alcoholic beverages are allowed in the theater. Check the schedule for those theaters and showing times.

Arclight introduces each showing, encouraging you to turn off your electronics, gives you the run time of the movie and the stars. They also WANT you to report to an usher if someone is talking, texting or otherwise disturbing your experience of the movie. Sweet!
I have seen them remove people from the theater so don't worry about ratting someone out.

I attend "other" theaters but normally under duress. Went I want the very best experience for my money I go to Arclight Cinemas, Hollywood.

“Best No Hassle Movie Experience, and Great Popcorn”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We love movies, but hate hassles. ArcLight delivers -- the best movie experience, with no hassles. Reserve your seat ahead online, print out your tickets at home, arrive to a crisp, clean theater with stadium seating, pick up the best, newly made popcorn with real butter, and settle in to your preassigned seat while the ever attentive staff assures no one is talking - - or texting - - and the picture and sound are perfect. What a delight.

“Great place to see a movie”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Worth the extra bucks to see movies here, including gourmet treats and assigned stadium seats!! There is a fun book store, great coffee and a convenient restaurant inside the theater, not to mention surrounding restaurants in this hip part of Hollywood
