The Los Angeles Conservancy has announced the films for its 2015 Last Remaining Seats series. I wish I could be more enthusiastic about this year’s LSR, because the conservancy does terrific work, but the programming is about as adventuresome as TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar or the old Classic Film section at Blockbuster:
“How to Marry a Millionaire.”
“Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
“Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
Meh. I used to be a big fan of Last Remaining Seats, but the selections haven’t been that interesting in recent years.
One film does sound worthwhile and that’s the Argentine picture “Dios se lo pague” (“God Bless You”), the traditional Spanish-language feature of the series. There’s a funky copy on YouTube in case you are curious about it.
