The Los Angeles Conservancy has announced its lineup for the Last Remaining Seats film series, choosing movies from previous seasons to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
The movies are: “Top Gun” (June 4)
“To Kill a Mockingbird” (June 8)
“Some Like It Hot” (June 11)
“Dos Tipos de Cuidado” (June 15)
“Singin’ in the Rain” (June 18)
“Double Indemnity” (June 22)
“Safety Last!” (June 25)
I used to be a regular at Last Remaining Seats, but dropped it a few years ago as programming became increasingly unadventuresome and, indeed, stale. Yes, they are classic movies, but they are also terribly overexposed. Even TCM limits itself to showing certain movies (i.e. “Gone With the Wind”) no more than twice a year for just that reason.
