    #The Cinerama Dome! Sit in right the middle, up top- front row! Use the rail as a foot stool! Best seat in the house! Doors open 15 min before showing! Grab some 3D Glasses, refreshmets & enjoy! 🎬

    This place is 2 min walkin from where I live, but it also has a lot of screening theaters, so it never gets crowded n' many time options for one show.Plus original movie costumes display every week!

    Best place around to watch a movie. Food, drinks, gift shop, assigned seating... everything you need for a stellar movie viewing experience. Becoming a member also gets you extra perks.

    Watching in the dome is cute. Homemade caramel corn! Don't eat at Blue C Sushi. Stella Barra is great for food before /after. Plus they have really good rice crispy treats to sneak in the theater :)

    There is not another place like Arclight! My favorite movie experience in the world. Best time to make the most of out it is friday morning or thursday night as it is also less crowded generally.

    Just saw Gaurdians of the Galaxy on the big Dome screen and let me say it was one of the most awesome movie experiences! The theater is very nice and reasonably priced for the quality! Must go!

    Though tickets are expensive, it really is an incredibly comfortable and high quality movie going experience here. Reserve your seats in advance and don't forge to validate your parking ticket.

    I love the Arclight. Assigned seating. a bar & restaurant. Almost free parking. What's not to like. And a gift shop. Also great bathrooms and lots of them. Also interesting concession items.

    Love being able to pick your seats when you book. Always enjoy going to the showings that allow you to take drinks into the theatre. Magic Mike XXL was a blast buzzed.

    Have an iPhone? Get the app to buy your tickets! It's $1 cheaper with the free membership, you get to pick your seats, AND they just scan your phone at the ticket taker! Super cool and convenient.

    Love it! Almost a gold member with the points program. My goto movie theatre. Maybe more expensive but have regular Q&A's with actors, directors and writers.

    "The Dome" is an interesting concept, extremely heavy 3D glasses and the screen is sooooo small for the size of the theater. However the audio was top notch and made up for all the pitfalls.

    The caramel popcorn is okay,but needs more butter & baking soda. Theater isn't as awesome as the Ipic, Cinepolis or AMC Marina, but it will do for an indie flick. Bring lots of money! You'll need it.

    ArcLight charges more but they offer amenities other theatres don't have. It's pretty clean and you can eat at the nearby restaurants before or after your movie. The mall it's in is really nice.

    Probably one of the best place to see big blockbuster films in LA. Its on the pricier end of the spectrum but it's a clean place with comfy seats.

    The dome is assigned seating so definitely buy your tickets early. Also, it isn't stadium seating so if your short be prepared to sit up straight.

    As always, pricey tickets. But the films and film quality are great. Almost always have a good time here.

    Thursday Afternoon time is the best time to watch a movie here, its like your own private cinema, you will be alone

    Protip: before/after a movie, head to the bar upstairs (instead of downstairs). Shorter line and access to the outdoor patio with open seating.

    Great screens with reserved seats. They validate parking for the lot next door, too. In other words, this is a totally hassle-free movie going experience.

    The fish and chips had been my go-to at the cafe, but the waiter we had informed us that the menu is about to majorly change. Looking forward to it!

    Great theater! It has assigned seats and the shows start on time so don't be late or you'll have to find your seat in the dark, and piss off everyone in the process!

    This is the only theater. That you can sit in the front row and have the best seat in the house!

    If you order a hot dog and don't want it drowned in a condiment...make sure to tell them you would like "light mustard" for example...same goes for butter on popcorn.

    Watch out for the paparazzi, if you have time get a beer upstairs, & never park in the lower lot in the garage. Enjoy the show!

    Keep an eye out for D&E film premieres of the latest concert films and rock documentaries to hit the silver screen only at Arclight! Tip: Grab a cocktail at the upstairs bar before or after the show!

    Very strict about start times - will not let u in theatre once film has started. If u need to change tickets and the main box office lines are too long, the cafe barista can help you w tickets!!!

    On weekends, check out The Balcony, top floor, a bar overlooking the restaurant and lobby. Has electrical outlets for power junkies! And a nice outdoor space as well.

    One of the best places to see movie in all of L.A. Only 3 trailers, good seating and central location.

    Get the ArcLight app (yes there's an app) and buy your tix through there. Pick your seats. And pick up you tix at the kiosk. Nothing easier

    Best picture quality and sound of any theatre I've been to. Go early and check out the displays, they frequently have costumes from current films.

    If you are a member and forget to buy online to get the $1 off, use their iPhone app to buy the tickets and then just pick them up at a kiosk.

    Reserved seats and movie props in the lobby are great. Only trailers (no commercials) before the movie.

    Seeing a movie here is makes other theaters seem like flying coach. These are first class theaters. Even a bad movie is a good experience at ArcLight. Prob best theaters in the world.

    Perfect combo: the chicken apple sausage with the watermelon BBQ sauce and Food Network approved homemade caramel corn to share

    Best theater in town for big movies and sometimes has some nice smaller movies (Laemmle's better). Dome is fantastic but somewhat more expensive compared to other theaters. Great guests too.

    A bit chilly, but a fantastic place. Wonderful that you have an assigned seat, so you can come at the last minute.

    perfect date: 1) buy your tix online before so you'll have sweet seats. 2) have dinner at the cafe before - the portobello tower is delish then 3) see the 21+ show where you can bring in bevies.

    The cathedral, the holy place. This is the definitive cinema-going experience, with the Dome being the pinnacle on top of a very enjoyable cake.

    You can finally drink while watching a movie in theaters. 5/6 ArcLight Cinemas now serve alcohol! Head on over to finally see Leo's Oscar worthy role while sipping on a Stella Artois. Read more

    Comfortable though ticket prices are quite high even for matinees. The costume exhibits are worth seeing.

    After you have tackled Amoeba, go to the Arclight Try and see something in the dome if you can. Which is an extra large auditorium shaped, well like a turtle shell. I go to this Cinema the most.
