As you well know by now, the Los Angeles Conservancy's Last Remaining Seats is one of our favorite events of the entire year. Enjoying a classic movie in one of Los Angeles' glorious old movie palaces is quite a magical way to spend an evening. I never tire of seeing a film at the Los Angeles Theatre (above) in particular, but others, like Orpheum and the Palace, are just as fantastic to visit. This year, the Conservancy is expanding its scope to also include the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills (where the PaleyFest is currently taking place).
Here's this year's schedule:
Saturday, June 1: To Catch a Thief (1955) at the Orpheum Theatre (1926).
Wednesday, June 5: La Bamba (1987) at the Palace Theatre (1911)
Wednesday, June 12: My Fair Lady (1964) at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion (1964)
Wednesday, June 19: All About Eve (1950) at the Los Angeles Theatre (1931)
Wednesday, June 26: Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1925) at the Orpheum Theatre (1926)
Saturday, June 29: Casablanca (1942) at the Saban Theatre (1930)
Tickets go on sale to Conservancy members on Wednesday, March 27 and to the general public on Wednesday, April 10. Last year, we enjoyed "Paper Moon" at the Los Angeles; read about it here. In 2011, we watched "Robin Hood" there, and in 2010, we caught "The Graduate" there.
