http://www.jaunted.com/files/admin/arclight_theater.jpgArclight Cinemas is opening a new location ... in Pasadena.

The premium movie-house operation -- which started in Hollywood and now has a location in Sherman Oaks, will move into the Paseo Pasadena cinemas on Colorado Boulevard.

LAist reported back in December about the rumored expansion. The movie chain denied it at the time but Tuesday said in a statement: "The conversion of the Pacific Paseo Theater in the Paseo Colorado center will give our many Pasadena area members the ArcLight experience right at their doorstep."

Pasadena already has another premium movie chain in town: Gold Class Cinemas -- with meals and fancy chairs -- is a few blocks away.
