Given these unique circumstances, we would like to try something new: VIRTUAL CINEMA from the comfort of your home.

A small group of distributors with whom we have a close relationship are allowing us to show films that are not released to the public just yet. When you purchase a ticket, a percentage of the proceeds goes directly to the Art, just like when you go to the movies, This a great way to see an independent film and support the Art Theatre. See our VIRTUAL FILMS below.

For Art Theatre members we will offer to extend your membership for the length of our closure to ensure that you have maximum time to utilize your member benefits.

If you would like to support us during this time, join our membership program or donate to the Art Theatre below. You can specify your donation to go directly to help our staff.

Be well and until soon!

VOTED

NUMBER ONE

Voted THE NUMBER ONE INDEPENDENT THEATRE in Los Angeles, the Art opened as a silent movie theatre and included a pipe organ and orchestra pit. 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. After one million dollars of loving restoration, the addition of a wine bar and coffee bar, The Art Theatre is the perfect destination for memorable evening.
