I don’t mean to be a shill for the Arclight, but this was in their latest member’s e-mail and it’s a great example of 1) Why it’s awesome that Star Wars Episode III is playing there (whether or not it’s playing at Graumann’s) and 2) Why I freaking love that theater and what they do.
THE DOME GOES DIGITAL!
State-of-the-art 2K resolution projection will fill the big screen with clarity and detail. All Dome shows of Episode III will be in digital presentation.

24 HOUR CONTINUOUS SHOWTIMES!
In addition to more midnite shows, we’ve added a 4am digital presentation. And seats are currently available in the 6:30am and 9:30am Dome shows.
Our CafÈ will be open, serving munchies for the middle-of-the-night diehards and offering continental breakfast items for the get-there-before-work crowd. Our coffee cart will be going full blast and we’ll have our signature chicken sausage baguettes, hot dogs and critically-acclaimed popcorn and caramel corn at the snack stands.
LIGHTSABER DUELS AND STORMTROOPERS!
Marshall artist sword masters from Master Replicas will present live lightsaber duels in the plaza every hour after dark, Wednesday through Saturday, May 18 – 21. The 501st Legion Stormtroopers will oversee the duels.
On Wednesday, May 18th, the 501st Legion, led by Darth Vader, will march through Hollywood to celebrate the opening of the film, returning to ArcLight around 7pm.
Let the celebration begin and may the Force be with you.
Um, hello, LIGHTSABER DUELS??!! And if you didn’t know, now that they and The Grove have changed their pricing structure it’s actually cheaper to see a movie at the Arclight sometimes. The Grove and Graumann’s can take their line standing and crowds and stuff them. Arclight 4 Life!
