At a screening of “Beowulf” in 3-D on Thanksgiving Day the guy had trouble eeking out an intro at the Hollywood Arclight. Maybe they should not let employees partake of the 21 screenings. :–)

The Santa Monica office of architectural firm Gensler & Associates designed the rebuilding of the Sherman Oaks Galleria, including the ArcLight Cinemas. Gensler also designed the ArcLight project in Hollywood.

Being from New Jersey, this may seem to be a stupid question, but…in the movie “Valley Girl” (1983) they show a Sherman Oaks Galleria at the closing credits. Is this the same Sherman Oaks Galleria, or has it been remodeled or expanded.

Markp – has a nice history on the Sherman Oaks Galleria. The old indoor mall (from “Valley Girl” and also seen in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”) and the current outdoor mall are basically completely different properties located on the same site. The old mall had tons and tons of stores, a Pacific 4 Theatres complex and, during its day, was super busy. The new mall has very few stores, a restaurant venue that can’t seem to make it, parking a mile away, and a gym. Progress.

Zubi, if thats progress, then I think I’ll stick with old school.

Arclight members were recently notified by email that this chain of theatres is going to start charging a $15 annual membership fee. One must now pay for the privilege of having a rewards/loyalty card that has been 100% free for well over a decade. All current memberships will terminate at the end of this summer. Members with accrued points who do not renew under the new program will have 24 months afterwards to use any accrued points. One must use or lose even new points under the new membership within 24 months. The trade-off is that you get a 10% discount on coffee, a $5 gift card for signing now, and other things that nobody cares about. They are calling these things “exciting new benefits”.
