Pacific Theatres at The Grove

The Grove is a wonderfully designed multiplex in a Neo-Deco style. Just like the movie palaces had in the past, there is a lofty large foyer, with a grand sweeping staircase, very plush, very ornate. Upstairs is what could be described as the mezzanine lobby where the auditoriums are located. Here there are large photographs displayed on the walls of former Los Angeles movie theatres. The Pacific Theatres at The Grove was opened March 15, 2002.

The auditoriums are black box style, state of the art, with large screens, surround sound and luxury stadium seating (the original seating capacity was 3,000).

The theatre is next to the Farmers Market, which is a good place for lunch and just a short walk along the road is the Silent Movie Theatre.

The Pacific Theatres at the Grove was closed on March 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced on April 13, 2021 that the closure would be permanent in all Pacific/ArcLight theatres.

It was a twenty minute drive on a recent Saturday night from Third and Fairfax to Beverly. The theater and the mall have created a traffic nightmare.

I’m trying to get to Canter’s. A little empathy, please.

good theater. kind of overpriced though. I’d much rather pay an extra $1-$1.50 and go to the Arclight or The Landmark for the reserved seating.

Theater is now reserved seating – but still labeled as a Pacific & not an ArcLight.

Chris Utley the web site still shows it as a Pacific Theater along with their others. This was news to me because I thought Pacific Theaters went belly up years ago.

Pacific sold its theaters outside Southern California to Australian company Reading International in 2007. Pacific and its Sister company ArcLight now operate under the banner of their parent company, Decurion Corporation, owned by the Forman family. They also own Robertson Properties, a real estate development company.

I wish I had the chance to visit this theatre. It looked really nice, but hopefully someone will step up to keep it open.
