Note: Not to be confused with Arclight Films.

Background: ArcLight Cinemas is a luxury cinema chain founded in 2002, with locations all around Los Angeles; including Hollywood, Pasadena, Sherman Oaks, San Diego, among others (all of which have been designed by We Design LA). They are owned and operated by the Forman family's Decurion Corporation, which also owns sister chain Pacific Theatres. All ArcLight locations uses Christie digital projectors. The ArcLight Dome in Hollywood uses THX sound systems.

Background Trivia: There are many Hollywood celebrities that have visited an ArcLight before; including British comedian James Corden, host of The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS, who became employed there for a day.


Nickname: "Curtain"

: We fade in to a set of blue rippling curtains. After a few seconds, the curtains open to reveal a white light. As we zoom out it is revealed to be the "I" in the ArcLight logo, set over a navy-blue tinted cloud setting. After fully zooming out the illuminated logo blurs for a few seconds then returns to its normal state and shines. The text dims, then flashes shortly after. Finally, we fade out.

FX/SFX: The curtains, the background, the text.

Music/Sounds: In the beginning, we hear a muffled synth note with a choir. After that we hear the flapping of the curtains as they open. As the animation continues, we hear a dreamy synth/chime tune. At the final note, we hear the same choir from the beginning of the logo. Composed by Danny Hulsizer of Elias Arts in Santa Monica, California.

Availability: Can be seen right before a film at every ArcLight location.

Editor's Note: None.
