Arclight Cinemas, Pacific Theatres Will Not Reopen

Pacific Theatre

Movie theaters have been struggling during the COVID pandemic and news has broken that Arclight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres will close down due to it. The news comes just as things were slowly returning to normal with the box office showing some life as blockbusters are released and individuals receive vaccines.

In a statement, the company said:

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.

This will shutter some iconic theaters like Cinerama Dome which was featured in film and television.

There is always a chance the company will be bought out but reports indicate the company is behind when it comes to rent for their locations.

The company controlled 300 screens in California and featuring locations outside the state in Boston, Chicago, and Maryland.

Marvel Legends Shang-Chi Wave Spotted in Target

Our own Troy Brownfield scored two figures from Hasbro‘s upcoming Marvel Legends Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings Wave.

Pictured are Shang-Chi and Tony Stark (A.I.) neither of which are spoilery and might have been released early due to that, though Civil Warrior would have been part of that too since that’s comic not movie related.

The first wave contains:

  • Shang-Chi (Movie)
  • Death Dealer (Movie)
  • Wenwu (Movie)
  • Xialing (Movie)
  • Iron Man (Tony Stark AI) (Comic)
  • Civil Warrior (Comic)

The figures also have a Build-A-Figure Mr. Hyde from the comics.

The film picks up on “The Ten Rings”, a terrorist organization that has been mentioned throughout numerous Marvel properties. The Mandarin, who wears the mystical ten rings, is the assumed leader of the group. But, as we learned in Iron Man 3, the Mandarin we were introduced to was in fact not the real one. We later learn that the real organization is pissed at the individual who “played the role”.

The toys that have leaked have given hints as to the plot of the film which will now debut on September 3, 2021 after delays. The figures have dropped before even a trailer.

Check out the figures below and we’ll have more to come!
