The ArcLight Cinemas in Santa Monica face an eviction lawsuit from the Santa Monica Place for non-payment of rent.
Real estate investment trust Macerich served an eviction notice on April 13. The notice came a day after Pacific Theatres announced the permanent closure of all 17 of its ArcLight and Pacific locations.
The suit claimed Pacific owed $1.9 million in back rent on the Santa Monica property and $1.5 million on the Lakewood theater. There has been no public Pacific response to that suit.
Pacific is battling on other fronts as well. OliverMcMillan, the San Diego developer that owns the theater in downtown Culver City, is seeking $781,999.62 in delinquent rent in a lawsuit filed last July.
The lawsuits were first reported by Variety.
