El Segundo Gets an ArcLight

The frou-frou film palace sets debut for the South Bay.

On the heels of the new ArcLight Pasadena comes the announcement that the first ArcLight will open in the South Bay.

The location is El Segundo; the company promises you'll be watching your Christmastime blockbusters there. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" Part I? The Coens' "True Grit"? Would this be a good place to spend a couple of hours if you're waiting on a delayed flight? El Segundo being just a hop south of LAX.

When the Pasadena theater opened, we warbled the praises of the caramel popcorn and the on-site bar. Of course, we also like those little scribbled-on time sheets that help you get to your seat before the lights go down.

It's rare for a company to have a memorable staple, much less a handful of staples.

You can follow ArcLight on Facebook and stay updated on the El Segundo opening date. Besides ArcLight Pasadena, the company has a theater in Sherman Oaks and its Hollywood location.
