This (bleep) hurts. Arclight theaters (particularly the Sunset/Dome location) were my favorite place to watch movies due to how much they respected the screening experience. They had the best hardware and the best customer service. I was really looking forward to enjoying a movie there as an official milestone for the end of COVID.

Saw Terminator 2 premiere at the Cinerama Dome back in the day. Hope they figure out a way to save the building.

This is huge. Arclight is/was the real thing—total cut above just going to a movie house. A real bummer. I have to imagine someone will come along and save The Dome, so many memories there, like sneaking in to see Apocalypse Now the week it was released.

Feels like one of the city’s vital organs getting removed.

This is horrible news! Going there was always like a special event for my family. Like going to a fancy restaurant for dinner or something.

One of the activities I miss the most is going to the movies, especially at this time of year. Hopefully, a few of these companies survive the pandemic and can keep these historic theaters alive.
