Pacific Theatres and ArcLight Cinemas will not reopen after closing their doors more than a year ago because of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

Pacific Theatres, which also owns ArcLight Cinemas, issued the following statement:

After shutting our doors more than a year ago, we must share the difficult and sad news that Pacific will not be reopening its  ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres locations.   

This was not the outcome anyone wanted, but despite a huge effort that exhausted all potential options, the company does not have a viable way forward.  

To all the Pacific and ArcLight employees who have devoted their professional lives to making our theaters the very best places in the world to see movies: we are grateful for your service and your dedication to our customers. 

To our guests and members of the film industry who have made going to the movies such a magical experience over the years: our deepest thanks.  It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve you.

The company operated six Pacific Theatres locations in California and eleven ArcLight Cinema Company locations in California, Illinois, Maryland, and Massachussetts.
