Carla's Movie Restaurant


A Project of CTS ARTIST

At Carla's Movie Restaurant we will entertain, indulge, and delight our guests
with works of new and established artists so that
each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in their toil.

VISION

Carla’s Movie Restaurant will be a place of extraordinary finds, showcasing single artists, students’ films, music, and visual arts. Professionally trained new artists will have a place to be among friends, family, and their community, celebrating their work and their talent.

ABOUT

Now in its 5th year, the idea of Carla's Movie Restaurant as a pop-up restaurant grew out of Carla’s passion for the arts and artists, and her desire to have a place to bring artists together and showcase their work in a relaxed community environment, like a restaurant or lounge.  The events became student-run from the very beginning, primarily from California State University, Long Beach. The project grew beyond initial expectations due to the creative energy brought in by young artists’ minds.

In 2014, Carla’s Movie Restaurant was awarded the “Emerging Arts Organization” by the Arts Council of Long Beach.

At a CMR pop-up event, the audience can watch student films, music and theater performances, admire and purchase art produced by young artists, as well as participate in an interview and question period to learn more about the creative process directly from the art.
