LAist has learned that Pacific Theatres Paseo 14 in Pasadena may be on deck to become the third ArcLight Cinemas location, possibly opening next Summer, according to a source, who spoke under the condition of anonymity. ArcLight Cinemas is owned by Pacific Theatres, which in turn is owned by Decurion.

Representatives, however, deny such a rumor. "ArcLight Cinemas has always been open to exploring new sites," read a statement e-mailed to LAist. "A third site has not been selected, and as policy we would not comment on a deal that wasn’t finalized."

But if true, Pasadena will be a hub for high-class theatres--the recently opened Gold Class Cinemas, which also offers online seat reservations, includes reclining chairs and waiter service. ArcLight currently has locations in Hollywood and Sherman Oaks.
