Food: Cinema and Dining Experience

The audience sits inside a giant 27-foot cube, watching a two-hour multi-screen video art program, dining on 4- or 5-course menus by Chef Nick Montgomery.

Monkey Town 8 opens in a 10,000-square-foot warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles — “in the middle of nowhere, but close to everything,” Knott says. The Alabama-born Momofuku alum Nick Montgomery has designed four- and five-course seasonal menus to complement the program of videos by artists like Shana Moulton, Johanna Billing and Takeshi Murata, plus special weekly performances by various artists and musicians. Meals and screenings take place in a raw space with 22-foot ceilings, while preshow receptions are relegated to a former office Knott describes as “someone’s genius combination of wood paneling, vintage wallpaper and generic ceiling tiles. We’re leaving a lot as-is and just embellishing around the edges.”
