    The reserved seating is really nice. Compared to other theaters, the seats aren’t the most comfortable, but more than tolerable. 8/10

    I go w/ my BFFs when I'm in town. I love the atmosphere & vibe. The employees are helpful & friendly. You get to pick your seats, which are very comfortable btw. They even have a mini-bar...Bonus!!!

    Love Arclight. The reserved seating and premium concessions/bar make the movie experience more civilized. Best to buy tickets online and choose seats.

    This place has great ambience for a movie theatre and the service is awesome. Be sure to grab a beer at the bar since you can take it into the movie!

    Super friendly staff and a great way to watch a movie. Reserve a seat(s) and show up a few minutes before the movie starts. Sign up for their annual membership for $1 off each ticket.

    The great things here are reserved seating and that you can bring your drinks into the theater. If you're a member you can save a little bit on the ticket price.

    Terrific place to see a movie: reserved seats and great popcorn. Ask for real butter!

    Row A, B and C is too close. Beautiful facility, but it isn't clear where you're supposed to go. However, the staff is super helpful and friendly.

    Apparently there is no matinee price, except it's ever-so-slightly cheaper on Monday and Tuesday.

    Unorganized. Didnt have someone to coordinate to clean the theatre. Came in 10 minute before the movie started, there was popcorn chocolate & empty cups in my seating area. Slow service Seating is a +

    Still new, but very nice place - reserved seating a HUGE plus. Also the DOLBY ATMOS is incredible.
