Great experience overall! Great sounding theatre rooms, awesome service at the concession stand. ONE bad thing was the fact that you can't poor your own ketchup, mustard, jalapeños etc on your own hot dog. That's ridiculous. Not everyone wants the same amount of the above...More

Comfortable seats, good sound, lots of choices. Customer service leaves a lot to be desired, mainly teenagers with little care for customer care. Popcorn was cold. But overall if we were in the area again we would likely return.

We came here to see "moonlight". Easy to get tickets on line thru fandango, had reserved seats, so no pressure to find a seat.

They charge $16.25 for an adult ticket for a Sunday afternoon show. It's a movie theater and nowhere near as nice as the AMC. That's just ridiculous!

Going to Arclight after Cinepolis makes me swear I won't settle for this experience again. Very limited menu at cafe and can't bring any of them into the theatre. Seats much smaller, close together and don't recline. It was okay but found myself thinking if...More

I like arclight cinema as they focus on movie going experience. They have a bar and cafe, but wisely do not serve food inside the cinema part. They have reserved seats and do not show any ads before the movie. They do show trailers. Its...More

I have been going to the movies at ArcLight Cinemas in La Jolla for quite a few months now and every time I go, I have a wonderful experience. The atmosphere sets the mood, the auditoriums are clean and well maintained, and the staff are...More
