2024 is the Art Theatre’s 100th Anniversary!
Celebrate and preserve Long Beach’s oldest and last independent cinema!This fantastic party and fundraiser will again feature our own Red Carpet entrance, photo booth, food and drinks, giveaways, a silent auction, and a LIVE telecast on the big screen. Join us for a viewing party you will not forget!

The Art Theatre is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and is the oldest (and only) surviving single-screen theatre in Long Beach.  Restored to its original Art Deco splendor, the Art is now a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the only venue in Long Beach supporting a variety of unique and compelling cinema.  The Art also provides a home for film festivals and local events including the QFilm Festival and the Cambodia Town Film Festival, among many others. Over the course of the year, nearly 50,000 people visit the Art to be entertained and enlightened. We hope you will join us in raising money, not only to keep the Art Theatre alive, but to continue its mission for what we hope will be another hundred years.

Your contribution will help preserve Long Beach’s last remaining independent theatre!
