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.

As of May 1st, proof of vaccination is no longer required; however, we strongly encourage our patrons to continue wearing masks.

Enjoy having your name, brand, company or any person you wish to celebrate, laser engraved on a plaque on your very own Art Theatre seat. When you sponsor a seat, we can also acknowledge your gift to a recipient of your choice.
