I recieved this e-mail this morning.

As a valued ArcLight Member, you are among the first to hear the exciting news we just announced. ArcLight Santa Monica at the Santa Monica Place will be our newest LA-based ArcLight Cinemas and is slated to open in the spring of 2015.

AMC had better turn this place into another Dine-In. It’s the only way the theatre will compete against ArcLight. And Laemmle.

I would assume this will be the last year the Broadway 4 Theatres will be in business. A dine in Theatre could be the only way AMC7 would stay open. Arclight SM would be the promenent theatre in SM and would really eat away at the competition.

I think they just need to change the seats to recliners like they did with the Fallbrook location. That alone turned Fallbrook 7 into a destination theater for the West Valley. Every time I go there it is so crowded, you have to get your seats at least a day early for popular films. Not every tourist will want to pay $16 for a matinee.

Will this be Arclight’s first built from the ground up theater since the first one in Hollywood?? I think it will be. I wonder if they will still leave the same footage as the screen height between the front row of seats and the screen as they have in Hollywood?

I believe the La Jolla (San Diego), Chicago (opening later this year) and Virginia (opening in 2015) ArcLights are built from the ground up.
