    Movie Palaces Come Alive Again

For twenty-four years, the Los Angeles Conservancy has hosted a month-long series called Last Remaining Seats, showing vintage films in the city’s great movie palaces, most of which are located on Broadway downtown. This year’s wide-ranging bill of fare included Strangers on a Train, American Graffiti, The Graduate, the 1943 Mexican classic Flor Silvestre, and the silent version of Peter Pan. (The evening I’m really sorry I missed featured How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying with its stars Robert Morse and Michele Lee in person, interviewed by Mad...

    A Lost Charlie Chaplin Film—Found!

    I sacrificed a “scoop” on today’s exciting news about the cache of rare American films discovered in (and now being repatriated from) New Zealand, because I’m part of the National Film Preservation Board and didn’t think it was right to undermine The New York Times, NPR, et al.

    On The Obit Watch

    Last week my wife and I took a road trip to the Grand Canyon, which I would recommend to anyone who hasn’t done it.
