If you've passed by the ArcLight in Hollywood this week, you may have noticed a gigantic yellow tarp draped over the Cinerama Dome. No, the theater isn't being fumigated and no, it isn't a huge Pac-Man for the upcoming Pixels movie. The ArcLight has been invaded by some cute yellow creatures, specifically Minions.

We saw some photos of the marketing piece pop up yesterday, and the installation will most likely be up for some time, as the animated flick Minions won't be released in theaters until July 10. The film is a spinoff and prequel to Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2, and stars Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm voicing the characters. Here's the trailer:

Update: Brianna Chavez, a spokeswoman for ArcLight Cinemas, tells LAist that they are not finished with the installation yet, but they will be soon. When it's finished, it will have a total of three Minions and an over-sized banana over the dome.
