Arclight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres Closing Forever

Chief Anglin predicted this last year. When this whole fake pandemic thing was just getting started, he wrote that the theater industry was finished.

With upcoming lockdowns, more and more cinemas will close until none remain.


The last thing we needed to hear as the box office and exhibition are rebounding from the pandemic was a piece of bad news, but word spread like wildfire in distribution and exhibition circles Monday that the Arclight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres won’t be reopening. The chain, owned by Decurion, has issued a statement — read it below.

Here’s Decurion’s statement:

After shutting our doors more than a year ago, today 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.

Cinemas are from the Old Normal.

You’re living in the New Normal now, which means that healthy human interaction is considered unhealthy, and every place where humans could interact in person is now deemed a threat to public health and to Demoncracy.

If you want to interact with other humans, you need to do that through the controlled and censored social media environment.
