Art Theatre to come back even greater
LONG BEACH, CA — The Art Theatre has been sold to local developers that will shut it down for half a year to restore some of its historic Art Deco feel.
Now playing at the Art Theatre, the marquee for the current movie reads “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days,” but for Howard Linn, it’s all about the two days.
Linn, who has owned and operated the venerable movie theater on Fourth Street for 35 years, has sold the venue.
On Thursday, the Art Theatre will close until July as the 84-year-old facility undergoes more than $1 million in renovations, courtesy of the theater’s new owners.
