With initial speculation pointing to a launch sometime this summer, ArcLight's Pasadena location appears to be heading for a May 7th opening date, according to the ArcLight site. Closed for the renovation since April 1, the Pacific Paseo Theater in the Paseo Colorado is being converted to provide ArcLight patrons with their signature experience of movie-going on 14 screens. The grand opening will be Friday May 7th to welcome ArcLight to the Paseo with a 12:01 a.m. showing of Iron Man 2, and movie-lovers to their third all-reserved location in the LA area. The venue will feature a Gift Shop and a 45-seat Cafe.
