Classics unspool at pic palaces

Orpheum, Palace, others recall H'wood's Golden Age

The Los Angeles Conservancy once will again endeavor to bring back the flavor of a bygone era by presenting “Last Remaining Seats,” a series of classic films and entertainment from Hollywood’s Golden Age in downtown L.A.’s Broadway Historic Theater District.

The summer event, now in its 12th season, will take place in such opulent, pre-Depression era hardtops as the Orpheum, Palace, State and Los Angeles theaters. The films will run at 8 p.m. every Wednesday from June 3 to July 1 in a different house each week.

The film series kicks off June 3 with “Top Hat” (RKO Pictures, 1935) at the Orpheum. The evening will also feature the presentation of the Last Remaining Seats Award for 1998 to industry veteran Richard P. May, VP of film preservation for Warner Bros.

Other pics being shown are “Lost Horizon,” “Salon Mexico,” “The Women” and “The Thief of Bagdad.” Each evening will have a different theme and special events tied to some aspect of the film presented.

For information, call (213) 896-9114.
