   The 28th annual Last Remaining Seats season will take place from June 11th – June 28th, 2014. As usual, the Los Angeles Conservancy will be the host for this two week movie festival. All tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 26th for the Conservancy members, and on Wednesday, April 9th to the general public.

   Conservancy volunteers created Last Remaining Seats in 1987 to draw attention to the historic movie palaces of Downtown Los Angeles, many of which are underused, and in need of restoration. It has become the Conservancy’s biggest signature event, drawing over 10,000 people a year from around the country and the world.

   This year’s cinematic schedule includes:

Wednesday, June 11th, 8p
The Lady Eve (1941) Los Angeles Theatre

Saturday, June 14th, 8p
West Side Story (1961) – Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Wednesday, June 18th, 8p
Footlight Parade (1933) – Orpheum Theatre

Saturday June 21, 2p & 8p
Back to the Future (1985) – Theatre at Ace Hotel (formerly United Artists Theatre)

Saturday, June 28th, 2p & 8p
Citizen Kane (1941) Orpheum Theatre

   The Los Angeles Conservancy is a nonprofit membership organization that works through advocacy to recognize, preserve, and revitalize the historic architectural and cultural resources of Los Angeles County. Their Historic Theatres Committee works to enhance public awareness and appreciation of historic theatres through events and educational outreach. Members also alert and advise Conservancy staff on theatre preservation issues.

   Tickets are $16 for Conservancy members, and $20 for the general public. Movies, venues, and dates are subject to change.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
