It's been announced that ArcLight Cinemas theaters are closing permanently in Chicago:
Unfortunately, audiences won't be able to return to any ArcLight theaters—in Chicago or elsewhere. Deadline broke the news that all ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres locations (owned by the same parent company) won't be reopening—at least not under their current ownership. All ArcLight theaters have been closed since the onset of the pandemic last March and the Chicago location has not reopened with the limited attendance currently allowed under the city's Covid guidelines.
"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," the chain's ownership said in a statement released by Deadline.
This is so sad :( I loved this theater. Sigh.
