LA Conservancy Brings a Miracle to Broadway

It's always a treat when the Los Angeles Conservancy unlocks the doors on downtown's classic Broadway movie palaces for its annual Last Remaining Seats. But if you can't wait until June for the return of that great event, the Conservancy is decking the Broadway halls on Sunday, December 4, at the Million Dollar Theatre.

The event is a matinee screening of the 1947 holiday classic "Miracle on 34th Street." It sounds like the perfect centerpiece to a full holiday-themed day downtown. The movie starts at 2 p.m. and is $10 for Conservancy members (with $5 for kids under 12). More details:

Kick off the holiday season with the Los Angeles Conservancy's sixth annual holiday film matinee. On Sunday, December 4, we’ll present a 2 p.m. screening of Miracle on 34th Street (1947), starring Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, and a very skeptical nine-year-old Natalie Wood.

Bring family and friends, come early or stay late, do some holiday shopping, go ice-skating at Pershing Square, dine at some delicious downtown restaurants, and enjoy a special discount from nearby Grand Central Market!

Part of the Broadway Historic Theatre District, the Million Dollar Theatre was built in 1918 for theatre impresario Sid Grauman. The ornate Spanish Baroque interior was designed by William Woollett and originally seated 2,300 people. The building housing the theatre was designed by Albert C. Martin, with ornate terra-cotta sculptures by Jo Mora.
