This is not your average viewing experience.

Founder/curator Montgomery Knott has managed to bring together a 360 degree video cube and fine dining experience known as Monkeytown to Downtown Los Angeles (after a sell out run in global cities Brooklyn, Barcelona and Austin).

Summertime brings some awesome events to Los Angeles county, and this unique combination of fine-dining and cinema inside a video-cube is one of the coolest experiences we’ve seen slated for this summer (actually it runs until October 1st 2016 to be exact).

The two-hour experience takes place inside the 27-foot cube where you (plus about 40 others) will enjoy a five-course meal, which includes wine, curated by chef Nick Montgomery (@nickemontgomery). The delicious menu includes organic meats and vegetables sourced from local farmers, there are also vegetarian options too, as if you needed another reason to visit the immaculate installation.

While dining inside the giant cube you will enjoy a series of artsy short films which include animation, funky abstracts and some interesting storylines. Halfway through the films, you will also enjoy a live performance right in the middle of the cube. The performers change throughout the Los Angeles run and you can check out the performance schedule on the website.

‘Most of you have never been in a video cube’ says Founder/curator Montgomery Knott, and we must agree, a very interesting, intimate video-cube setting while dining and summoning a series of emotions throughout the films. Or maybe that’s just us.

Do yourself a favour if you are in town, or planning to visit Los Angeles within the next two months, stop by this unique, intense installation and give your appetite, eyes and feelings a wonderful treat. You will thank us later.

Monkeytown is located at: 111 West 21st Street, Downtown LA, 90007

The installation runs through October 1st, 2016.

Tickets are available for purchase through Monkeytowns website.
