Arclight Cinemas Project EIR

The proposed project would involve the demolition of City Parking Structure #3 and development of an approximately 100,000 sf  building consisting of 90,000 of floor area for theater use with up to 16 screens, 2,700 seats, and associated lobby, lounge, and food service areas; and 10,000 sf of retail/restaurant commercial space available for lease.  The proposed project would consist of 4 levels and have a height of 84 feet above grade.


The main entrance would be at ground level with stairs, escalators, and elevators transporting patrons to the main lobby on the third level.  The main lobby would include ticket purchase counter/kiosks, a restaurant/lounge, concessions, restrooms, back of house facilities, and kitchen.  The auditoriums would be located on all four levels and the restaurant/retail space would be on the ground floor level.  Pedestrian access to the theater would be provided from 4th Street on the ground level.  No parking is proposed to be provided on the project site.  It is anticipated that the project's parking demand would be met by the public parking supply in the Downtown and Civic Center.
