Pacific Theatres' renovation of its Sherman Oaks Galleria location has a "grand" opening Dec. 14, but this ArcLight o' the Valley opened new movies on four of nine screens last Friday. Similar "departure board" and cafe/bar in the lobby (though this one overlooks the 405) plus a full-on coffee bar and a hypnotizing backlit wall of classic one-sheets, nearly overpowering the smell of new carpet and stiff, unused seats. Fuzzy cell phone pics are all that's available for now unless, say, some better photos get contributed to the Curbed LA Flickr pool. Hint, hint.
Up two flights, past the gym and the DSW shoe store, alas, ArcLight Sherman Oaks
ArcLight designers kindly placed benches across from this floor-to-ceiling wall of classic movie posters
