Arclight Cinemas And Pacific Theatres Won't Be Reopening

Source: Deadline

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.

Last week, I was hearing that the chain was shooting for a Memorial Day weekend reopening with A Quiet Place Part II and Cruella. Now those hopes look dashed, and at an unfortunate time because it’s expected that Los Angeles County could have movie theaters operating at 100% capacity by then — well before California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s June 15 wide-open order.

Decurion’s crown jewel is the Hollywood Arclight multiplex on Sunset Boulevard and its 58-year old Cinerama Dome, which made a big cameo in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and remains many filmmakers’ favorite venue. The Hollywood Arclight is also one of the highest-grossing movie theaters in the nation; again, a huge blow to the industry and the L.A. market, which is in its fourth week of a robust reopening.

Oh man, this one hurts. I've been to the Cinerama Dome on Sunset too many times to count and seen some really awesome movies there. Damn this virus!

Why do conservatives want Biden and Harris to go to the border so badly?

And seriously - what would that accomplish? It wouldn't accomplish anything because even if they did cater to their demands, they would still find ways to smear them, saying things like they didn't go to the border fast enough, or would find some way to blame the current border "crisis" on Obama even though most of this is the previous guy's fault.

Personally I'd rather have Joe and Kamala stay and work on actual crises, not ones made up by a news network for ratings.

So about those Trump merchandise booths...

I was driving around yesterday and I passed by one, and they've now devolved into selling "F**k Biden" merchandise, complete with t-shirts that have some very violent and offensive slogans on them. Yes this is a thing that exists. And they are hurling obscenities on fairly heavily trafficked street corners. It's totally disgusting. Yes, I know it's meant to be offensive and we fall for it, but this is truly horrid and beyond the pale. But I can't help but keep wondering - where is this shit coming from? And who's sponsoring these booths? What is their purpose? And also - how is this sort of thing even allowed or tolerated by the city?

Hey Gov. Abbott, you're completely 100% a part of the problem!

Trump falls nearly 300 spots on Forbes billionaires list

Former President Trump fell nearly 300 spots on the Forbes billionaires list after his fortune decreased by more than $1 billion during his four years in office.

Trump ranked 1,299 on the Forbes billionaires list, released on Tuesday, with an estimated worth of $2.4 billion.

Last year, Trump ranked 1,001 on the list.

Forbes reported that Trump’s estimated net worth in January 2017, when he entered office, was $3.5 billion.

Forbes noted, however, that Trump is richer now than he was a year ago, when the outlet released their valuations at the beginning of the pandemic. His ranking slipped, Forbes wrote, because he could not keep pace with the other billionaires on the list who saw their fortunes rise.

Trump brushed off the results as unsurprising, saying in a statement to The Hill, “That’s the way it’s supposed to be, a politician is not supposed to make money while in office, and a rich person should come out of office with less."
