Last winter the Cobblestone Cinema went out of business after over 40 years in the Cobblestone Shopping Center in Tahoe City. This small, home town theater was a place I (and Lynn Richardson as well) spent many a high school night, but now it had fallen victim to the challenging economics of movie theaters. Fortunately, it was replaced a few months ago by the Tahoe Art Haus and Cinema, which brings a fresh new approach to seeing movies, and to Tahoe City. The Art Haus presents independent and outdoor oriented films and documentaries, special events and theater productions, classics and major motion pictures.

Tahoe Art Haus co-owner Stephen Siig says, “we wanted to create some more night life in Tahoe City. So far it has been great. People have told us that they are excited to have something to do again on the North Shore.” The Art Haus has become a popular meeting place for locals and visitors alike, perhaps because the focus is not just on the movies, but a fun, down to earth experience.

The Art Haus has a small bar serving several types of beer, and healthier snacks. They also have a popcorn bar where patrons can choose amongst a number of seasonings and real butter, and baked goods from Sugar Pine Cakery and Tahoe House. Frequently they partner with local restaurants to do a dinner and a movie.

The building was extensively remodeled and updated with new bathrooms and lobby, and all new seating. In addition to comfy new seats in the front, there is an elevated area in the back with couches and larger soft chairs. It’s all designed to make you feel like you are just hanging out and watching a film with a bunch of friends. A special touch is that before the films begin to roll, Stephen Siig gets the audience ready by announcing the movie, always providing some interesting tidbit on its Tahoe connection.

Just about every night something different is going on at the Art Haus. To keep tabs go to tahoearthauscinema.com or follow their Facebook page.
