The executive had departed Landmark Theatres in October.

Less than four months after exiting Landmark Theatres, Ted Mundorff has found a new role at ArcLight Cinemas. 

The theater executive, who had spent more than 15 years at Landmark, was hired as ArcLight's incoming president and COO, the chain said Friday. 

"I’m thrilled to be reuniting with Ted, an exhibition executive whose deep love of film and understanding of the customer experience will be critical to the future of our brand," stated ArcLight CEO Christopher Forman.

Mundorff had stepped down from Landmark in October 2019, less than a year after owners Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner sold the independent theater chain to billionaire real estate developer Charles S. Cohen.

Regal Theatres exec Paul Serwitz was named president and COO at Landmark shortly after Mundorff stepped aside.

During his Landmark tenure, Mundorff brought theaters to Denver, Indianapolis, Washington, D.C., and Miami. The chain now operates 49 theaters in 27 U.S. markets.

The upscale ArcLight, founded in 2002, now has 11 theater locations in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Diego and Boston. The chain, owned by the Los Angeles-based Decurion Corporation, also counts regional exhibitor Pacific Theatres as its sister company.

Prior to his Landmark tenure, Mundorff worked as vp and film buyer at Pacific and ArcLight. 

"I am excited to be working with Chris again, alongside the entire ArcLight team," Mundorff stated. "Since its founding, ArcLight has been a leading innovator in our industry, and I look forward to continuing to deliver meaningful moviegoing experiences to guests across the country."
