“A must-see movie!” —San Francisco Chronicle
Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to battle these very conditions. There is a solution so comprehensive, but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously? Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled with diet.

About The Art Theatre:
Voted The Number One Independent Theatre in Long Beach by OC Weekly and District Weekly, the Art opened as a silent movie theatre and included a pipe organ and orchestra pit. It is the oldest operating single screen house in Long Beach in 1924. Our art deco, streamline moderne-style historical landmark is famous for its screening of the most imaginative and stimulating independent, documentary, animated, alternative lifestyle, and foreign language films. After one million dollars of loving restoration, and the addition of a wine bar and coffee bar to round out a full evening experience, we are proud to continue this long-running tradition.
