The Art Theatre originally opened in 1925 as a single screen silent movie house. At that time, there were over 50 independent theatres in Long Beach, today only the Art remains.



The Art Theatre is the perfect venue for a wide variety of private events. With our state of the art digital sound system and projection, our equipment is second to none in Long Beach.

It is the oldest operating single screen house in Long Beach. Our art deco, streamline moderne-style historical landmark is famous for its screening of the most imaginative and stimulating independent, documentary, animated, alternative lifestyle, and foreign language films.
