ArcLight Cinerama Dome
ArcLight Cinerama Dome Review
Film buffs and preservationists breathed a sigh of relief when the Arclight complex opened its doors and rewrote the book on cushy movie going. With plush stadium seating, reserved seats for some showings, state-of-the-art sound, an usher who welcomes you and introduces the film, and snack bars that cook up their own fresh caramel corn, the Arclight justifies its high ticket prices ($11.50–$14.50, depending on the hour you go). Built next to the restored geodesic Cinerama Dome, a curved-screen architectural icon, the complex also caters to film lovers with special director's Q&A nights as well as exhibits of movie costumes and photography throughout the lobby.
Weekend nights have an especially hip buzz as film enthusiasts and Industry power couples linger in the soaring lobby. Browsing in the artfully curated lobby gift shop and bookstore is a great way to pass time and people watch. Parking is $2 in the adjacent garage with a movie ticket purchase and validation.
