    The Last Remaining Seats

    What could be better than watching a classic movie in a great theater, surrounded by like-minded people? Last night I was proud to introduce the opening night of the Los Angeles Conservancy’s 25th annual festival known as The Last Remaining Seats. Once a year, vintage films are screened in a handful of our city’s remaining movie palaces on Broadway downtown. These theaters—which truly deserve to be called palaces—generally seat about 2,000 people, and they’re usually full, as tickets sell like hotcakes the minute the series is announced every year.
