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.

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.

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

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.

It’s 85 degrees today-ready to move here? Nice photos.

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

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.

Rick Caruso was recently interviewed in the LA Times regarding his new mall in Glendale. He made a snide comment about seeing only eighty year olds the first time he went to the Farmers Market. I’m not one of his fans.

I rather like the artificial street. I mean it sort of gives you that back lot feel.

The best thing I like about the Pacific Grove are the curved screens. When I visit LA the time to go is on the weekdays, you don’t have the weekend crowds.

I liked the GCC Beverly Connection.

And The Grove is one of the reasons the former GCC Beverly Connection complex closed.

I do not like The Grove; the theatres are really nothing special. It is always too crowed. I’ve been there only 2 times and both times I had not very good experiences.

This. Is. One. Overrated. Movie Theatre!!! I avoid the place as much as possible.

The theater is nice. The Grove itself is kind of artificial for me. I prefer a real city street as opposed to a manufactured one. Fortunately the Farmer’s Market was not obliterated and co-exists, more or less, with the complex.

The lead architect for this neo-deco style multiplex was Marios Savopoulos, of the Long Beach, California firm Perkowitz+Ruth, in association with the developers of The Grove, Caruso Affiliated Holdings.

Although the Grove is a great place to see a film, I still prefer the Archlight, Chinese or the Bridge.
