LAist's Solved Mysteries: Stealing Arclight Bonus Points

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

With enough solved mysteries now to publish a best-selling novel, LAist has settled into a comfortable place solving local mysteries for our loyal readers on a week-to-week basis. Sure, it may not be nearly as snarky as The Coffee Buzz -- but hell, it's free. And in this world, that's something to talk about.

This week, LAist turns our wandering (and lazy) eyes towards a potentially criminal situation that has been unknowingly going on at Hollywood's Arclight Cinemas for some time now. And even more disturbing, is that it's been going on without many people having any inkling about it.

What we're talking about are the "bonus points" one gets when they buy anything at Arclight Cinemas. Whether you purchase tickets, buy food or even waste your money on their in-house gift store items (yes, I know you desperately need that book on the Top 100 Movie Lines of all time) -- such items turn into bonus points specifically for YOU, that can be redeemed for free items at the concession stand.

Sadly, you may not be the only person redeeming your own bonus points.
