Originally opened in 1925 as a single screen silent movie house, the Art is complete with an orchestra pit, and pipe organ. At that time, there were over 50 independent theaters in Long Beach, today only the Art remains. In 2008, a group of local investors purchased the theatre and completely remodeled it based on the 1933 blueprints. Since, the Art has once again become the center of Long Beach cinema, showing both first run and small independent films in a beautiful historic setting. The Art Theater is situated in Long Beach’s Retro Row, surrounded by vintage and antique stores and well as hip bars and restaurants.
