The theaters are spacious and cozy, with reclining leather chairs, and assigned seating.

In addition to the movies, restaurant, and bar area, Art Houz remains true to its name and is placing a huge emphasis on art and local artists. The venue has installed its first large, immersive art pieces.
Artist Claudia Bueno is the Art Houz’s first featured artist. Bueno’s installation is called FiberSpace, and it is her interpretation of the human nervous system inspired by earth, wind, and fire.
