ArcLight Cinemas Brings Epic WARCRAFT Towering Orgrim Character In-Theatre Experience
Battle begins as ArcLight Cinemas, Legendary and Universal Pictures announce the launch of a traveling in-theater installation featuring a larger-than-life statue of Horde warrior Orgrim, one of the stars of this summer’s epic cinematic adventure WARCRAFT.
