Come Again? Last Remaining Seats Series Continues
There is just something about seeing old black and white films on the big screen that gets our motor ticking. Put them in old theaters and you have a winning combination.
This year's series of the LA Conservancy's, Last Remaining Seats, has been a hit and selling out. There are two nights left. Tonight you can make your way over to the John Anson Ford Ampitheater to see La Balandra Isabel llegó esta tarde, a beautiful 1949 Venezuelan film. While most of the series prohibits outside food and beverage, you'll be in for a true treat tonight when you can go early and picnic. Compared to last week's show of Yankee Doodle Dandy where we ate a piece of pizza from the shop next door, this is a step up for us.
Next week's closer is the original 1929 Scarface at the Alex Theater in Glendale.
Doors open at 7pm and we suggest getting there as close to that as possible to get a good seat. There are parking and dining discounts included with the series on the nights of the performances.
