Arclight Cinemas Sherman Oaks

Los Angeles, California
January 1st 2001

This retrofit converted an already successful megaplex theater into a high-end cinema more in character with the transformation of the Sherman Oaks Galleria in which it is housed. Museum-quality finishes blend natural woods and stained concrete with the dramatic use of curtain elements. All 16 auditoriums reflect ArcLight’s state-of-the-art standards for sight, sound and projection systems. New amenities include a full-service café/bar, gift shop, coffee bar and a reservations-only “black box” seating area free of distractions. Several exhibit spaces accommodate a variety of displays ranging from flat art to costumes and props.
