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”.

nice theaters, the digital projection of ‘Looper’ was sharp as a tack and looked great. What was odd is that before the movie one of the employees came in and introduced the film and would check the image and sound, well he didn’t stay around for the feature film because the sound notably the dialogue was very very quiet – I couldn’t get up and complain as missing any of the movie would render the plot incomprehensible.

I was personally shocked over the tix price, which for the first (morning) screening of the day was a whopping $12.50 – ouch… If Arclight thinks they can charge that amount (and higher for their evening screenings) for their features at the 2014 opening on the East Coast at the Montgomery Mall Bethesda Maryland location, think again

It’s not just the design of the theatre but how it is operated and what type of bookings. ArcLight is a new standard in how theatres should be operated, not the same old plex style of operations.

I have not been to this theatre or the Sherman Oaks theatres. But I would imagine converted Arclight is not up to parr with “Hollywood” standards. Arclight Hollywood is a superbly designed complex. I am not a fan of multiplexes, but the Archlight Hollywood is the except to my rule. Each auditorium is flawless in design, with high ceilings, and great sightlines from wherever you sit. I’m never uncomforatable and yet to have a bad experience at Arclight Hollywood.

Arclight Hollywood – $15.50 to see a film, albeit in the best way possible. Wonder if there are enough people in the Pasadena area that will feel the same way. Will defintely price out a large amount of people who won’t pay $15.50 to see a film. That being said, I am very happy to hear that Arclight is opening a Pasadena location. Welcome to the neighbourhood!!

I went to the indoor mall at the Paseo location a couple of times in the 1980s. It was depressing. The new development is mixed condos and retail, and has done well so far.

Hastings is down the street to the east, about ten or twelve blocks I would guess, and has been around a while. The Paseo is relatively new.
