New Location for ARRI Inc. and ARRI Rental in Los Angeles

ARRI Inc. and ARRI Rental's new West Coast facilities in Burbank, California

ARRI Inc. and ARRI Rental announce the relocation of their West Coast facilities to a new, purpose-designed building in the Burbank area of Los Angeles.

The move to 3700 Vanowen Street, Burbank, California 91505, which took place on March 4th, provides many enhancements to empower creatives. Each company, ARRI Inc. and ARRI Rental US, occupies its own side of the building, while sharing communal and creative spaces to enrich customer experience and build community.

Glenn Kennel, president and CEO of ARRI Inc., says, "The move to a new home is all about serving the creative community further. Our custom-designed building will allow us to engage with that community in new ways and showcase our industry-leading products and services. Having everything under one roof gives content creators and customers the best experience possible."

Located opposite Hollywood Burbank Airport Metrolink station, with excellent transport links, loading zones, and a large parking lot, the modern and spacious new building has been designed to provide a customer-friendly environment. Services and facilities are being expanded, and the offices, meeting rooms, social areas, test rooms, and demo spaces facilitate face-to-face business dealings and inspire collaborations.

Two key areas are the ARRI Creative Space and screening room. The Creative Space is a dressed shooting set for tests and workshops, fitted with state-of-the-art equipment. The new screening room has 64 seats and features a 4K Christie DLP digital cinema projector with 7.1 surround sound.

These resources, along with the welcoming communal kitchen and social areas, will allow more events, such as ARRI Academy workshops, creative salons, ARRI Cinema Club screenings, and master classes with the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC).

ARRI's service department is expanding the range of repairs and alterations to camera equipment it can offer on site. A clean room allows for sensor cleaning and filter assembly, while the new imaging lab provides a controlled environment for HDR evaluations, research, and development. The design of the new building will streamline service processes and speed up turnaround times.

In the ARRI lobby and welcome area, a tech table allows customers to get their hands on the latest ARRI tools like our Stellar app, pro camera accessories, and electronic control system products. In the ARRI shop, visitors can browse a range of ARRI-branded merchandise, such as clothing and crew bags.

Sharing the new location brings advantages for both ARRI Inc. and ARRI Rental US, and for their customers. ARRI Rental is an important testing ground for ARRI equipment and provides first-hand feedback for product development. "ARRI Rental offers exceptional value to our customers with leading technology including the ALEXA 65 and our exclusive selection of lens offerings such as the DNA range. With the highest quality service and support, this new facility allows ARRI Rental to raise the bar," says ARRI Rental president Peter Crithary. Shared resources and expertise will bring efficiencies with new, innovative collaborations.
