L.A. Conservancy Announces Last Remaining Seats for 2013

The L.A. Conservancy has posted its lineup for the Last Remaining Seats – which is one of my favorite downtown L.A. events – and I have to say I’m underwhelmed.

June 1: “To Catch a Thief” at the Orpheum.

June 5: “La Bamba” at the Palace

June 12: “My Fair Lady” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

June 19: “All About Eve” at the Los Angeles Theatre.

June 26: “Ben-Hur” (the 1926 silent version) at the Orpheum.

June 29: “Casablanca” at the Saban Theatre.

I mean “Casablanca?” Yes it’s a great movie, but everybody and their brother has seen it many times. And “My Fair Lady” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion? I suppose it could be worse, like seeing a movie in Shrine Auditorium, but I can’t say the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is an alluring venue for film.

I pains me to say this, because I do like to support the Conservancy, but I think I’ll take a pass this year.

  1. There is a sadness at seeing AFI’s ‘Best Remaining Seats’ at surviving great dream palaces become ‘Last Remaining Seats’ at so few great venues from the golden era.

    Underwhelming. exactly. I am a Conservancy member…but I too must pass this year.

      I’m really disappointed. LSR is one of my favorite events of the year. I want to support the Conservancy, but there is really nothing I care to see.

    I’m disappointed too. I’ll continue to support the Conservancy, but there’s nothing on the list I’m dying to see.
