Fresh off opening their third location in Pasadena, Pacific Theatres today announced their next venture: ArcLight Beach Cities. CEO Christopher Forman called the new location "a natural extension of the ArcLight brand in the Greater Los Angeles Area."

The theatre, which will offer online seat reservations, bigger seats, double arm rests, full stadium seating and free parking, among other traits that make up the ArcLight brand, will take place of Pacific’s Beach Cities 16 Theatres on Nash Street. It will open at end of 2010 during the holiday season.

"El Segundo is thrilled to have ArcLight Cinemas invest in our city," said Mayor Eric Busch. "A cinema for movie-lovers like ArcLIght fits perfectly with the South Bay market, providing our residents with a convenient opportunity to see art-house films and blockbusters in the same high-quality venue."

Other ArcLight locations are in Hollywood and Sherman Oaks.
