The Pacific Culver Stadium 12 opened in 2003. It was designed by the San Diego architectural firm Benson & Bohl (who also designed the Pacific Gaslamp 15 in San Diego) in an Art Deco-influenced Neo-Vintage style. Prior to the start of the Culver Stadium’s construction, the Los Angeles Business Journal reported that the proposed multiplex, which had initially been projected as a 10 screen house with 1600 seats, would be upgraded to a 12 screen house with 1852 seats.

Hollywood Reporter said in a 2003 article that the interior of the theatre was designed by a firm called Tanazaki & Associates, but I’ve been unable to find a firm with that name (or the variant spelling Google suggests, Tanizaki) on the Internet.

I come here about 2-3 times a year. For a Pacific, it’s actually pretty nice. Nice sized screens and decent sound.

It appears that this will be getting the Arclight treatment.

ArcLight opens in Culver City, CA, late spring 2015!

We’re converting the Pacific Theatres in Culver City into an ArcLight! The theater will include ArcLight’s signature amenities, including reserved seating, black-box auditoriums, commercial-free movies, and gourmet cuisine, as well as 21+ screenings and our newly enhanced Membership program.

This theater could use the face-lift, yet i am not sold on the Arclight conversions. They do not change the seating layout, so there are new seats, but the same legroom, in the case of Arclight Sherman Oaks, is dreadful. I hate paying premium prices only to be crammed up against the seat in front of me.

I wish Pacific Theaters would change the Northridge or Chatsworth locations to Arclight, those are dreadful and threadbare, with terrible sound and picture.

Today is the last day of Pacific operations here. Conversion to ArcLight begins soon. 2003-2015. No word on how many screens will be here.

At the new ArcLight Culver City. Definitely upscale.
