California’s beautiful ArcLight Cinemas will open a Boston location

ArcLight Cinemas, one of the nicest locations to watch a film in these days, will open a location in Boston’s The Hub on Causeway development. Located adjacent to the TD Garden and above North Station, the development will feature over 800,000 square-feet of shopping, dining, residential, office space and entertainment. The 15-screen theater will serve as an integral component of the project, offering a new hot-spot for locals to enjoy their films. Construction on the theater will begin this winter with the grand opening set for early 2018.

For more than a decade, ArcLight Cinemas has redefined the movie-going experience for California residents by presenting films the way filmmakers intended moviegoers to experience them. The 15-screen theater will feature ArcLight’s signature amenities that movie-lovers have enjoyed, such as reserved seating, a commercial-free environment, extra-wide seats, unique programming, and excellent sight and sound, including Dolby Atmos, ArcLight’s widescreen format, and “black box” auditoriums.

The opening of ArcLight Boston is part of the company’s plan to expand its movie-going focus and amenities to guests everywhere. ArcLight Boston marks ArcLight’s third major metropolitan area outside of California, including Bethesda, Maryland and Chicago, Illinois.

“The city of Boston is a vibrant community with a long history of avid movie-going. This makes it a great location for ArcLight,” said Christopher Forman, chief executive officer of ArcLight Cinemas. “For 13 years, ArcLight Cinemas has changed the way moviegoers experience the art of film and we plan to share that enhanced experience in Boston in this exciting new project.”

ArcLight Boston will include a full bar, café and concessions with favorite items such as ArcLight’s famous caramel popcorn and chicken sausage baguettes. Guests 21 years and over can enjoy wine, beer and cocktails throughout the theater. ArcLight’s membership program further enhances moviegoers’ experience with member-only rewards, including discount ticketing for all online purchases.
