SANTA FE, NM (May 3, 2024) —The creator of extraordinary, mind bending immersive experiences, Meow Wolf, is announcing that its sixth permanent exhibition will be located in a movie theater in Los Angeles—a city that, much like Meow Wolf, is constantly evolving. 

Meow Wolf began in 2008 as a DIY collective of Santa Fe artists who repurposed junk into staggering immersive art spaces and threw raucous warehouse parties, as seen in the documentary Meow Wolf: Origin Story. When George R. R. Martin helped them open their wildly successful first permanent installation, House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe, the artists embarked on a meteoric rise in which they transformed the scrappy collective into a Certified B Corp. They went on to build awe-inspiring interactive worlds that have transported almost 10 million guests into breathtaking realms of imagination in Las Vegas, Denver, Dallas, soon Houston, and next, Los Angeles.

Los Angeles stretches out in all directions, not just physically but culturally. It’s a city that doesn’t follow; it often leads and sometimes, races ahead of itself. This frenetic creativity, daringness to dream, sprawling magnitude, and futuristic alignment is exactly why Meow Wolf has chosen Los Angeles as the home for its next dream oasis. 

“For years we’ve made trips to Los Angeles, dreaming of creating something in its layered and ever-changing network of creativity,” said Sean Di Ianni, Co-Founder of Meow Wolf and Senior Creative Director of Meow Wolf Los Angeles. “L.A. is more than a physical place; it extends deep into the global landscape of human imagination, constantly pushing its own bounds. Meow Wolf Los Angeles will stretch these cinematic horizons by weaving together an unpredictable tapestry of art, story and interactivity.” 

Known for being hard to explain but easy to enjoy, Meow Wolf exhibitions are genre-defying. Unlike conventional escape rooms, selfie museums, or immersive projection mapped tours, they’re fully fleshed out and interconnected interactive worlds with underlying storylines that invite a unique experience for every person who visits them. Meow Wolf Los Angeles will encapsulate their signature style of maximalist fantasy woven together with a decidedly Angelino twist: cinematic mythos, mysterious eggs, absurd glitz, the fantastical spells cast by Hollywood, and novel connections to their existing Meow Wolf worlds in other cities, all that thrive under an overarching cosmic Meow Wolf Universe. 

“This is more than an immersive experience,” said Jose Tolosa, CEO of Meow Wolf. “We want it to be a part of the city’s ongoing narrative of growth. Being in Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world, we’re humbled to add to the dynamic interplay between art and entertainment here. Meow Wolf Los Angeles will blur the lines between reality and fantasy, inviting everyone to become part of a living, breathing spectacle.” 

Meow Wolf is proud to be the first Certified B Corporation in the entertainment industry. For each location it inhabits, Meow Wolf collaborates with local artists to create a masterpiece that is an ode to the city they call home. Expect a full sensory love letter to the Los Angeles art scene, its history, and its legacy. 

Can’t wait to see it for yourself, Angelinos? Omega Mart, Meow Wolf’s trippy grocery store instagrammed by celebs like Alicia Keys and Katy Perry, is just a three hour drive away and it’s open now. Additional details about the L.A. exhibition’s grand reveal, theme, and more will be announced in the coming months. Meow Wolf Los Angeles invites travelers of all ages to an unforgettable experience through living, breathing art. 


Meow Wolf is not your typical arts and entertainment company; they’re the creators of extraordinary, mind-bending experiences that transport millions of adventurers of all ages into breathtaking realms of imagination and wonder. As the proud recipients of numerous accolades, including Time Out’s #1 Immersive Experience in the US (2023), Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies (2024, 2022 and 2020), and USA Today’s Top 10 Best Immersive Art Experiences (2022), Meow Wolf is committed to engaging curious seekers through the magic of discovery and play. They are distinct in their collaboration with hundreds of visionary artists who infuse creativity into every Meow Wolf experience. The journey began with the THEA Award-winning House Of Eternal Return in Santa Fe (2016), a mystery house with hidden passages and mesmerizing art exhibits. In Las Vegas, Omega Mart (2021) presented a surreal grocery store experience. Denver’s Convergence Station (2021) appeared as a maximalist architectural marvel linking four alien worlds. In July 2023, Meow Wolf unveiled The Real Unreal in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and plans to open a new location in Houston in 2024. As a certified B-Corporation, Meow Wolf leads in themed entertainment, innovating and celebrating human imagination. All are invited to join a journey that defies convention, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy.
