Here’s the beautiful Los Angeles Theatre (1931) with “Easter Parade” playing to a packed house as part of the Los Angeles Conservancy’s annual “Last Remaining Seats” program. • The 2019 season kicks-off this Saturday with “It Happened One Night”, hosted by Leonard Maltin at the Los Angeles Theatre. So far it’s about 90% sold out so get your tickets quick to see a classic film in the theatre’s opulent surroundings. • Although pre-screening theatre tours are sold out, stick around after the movie for a Q+A about the theatre and an after party in the sumptuous five-story Grand Lobby! • For photos+info -> historictheatrephotos.com/latheatre • For event info+tix -> laconservancy.org/last-remaining-seats • #theatre #theater #movietheatre #cinema #lastremainingseats #lastremainingseats2019 #laconservancy #losangelestheatre #losangeles #dtla @laconservancy @losangelestheatre.la @official_lahtf @happeningindtla @dtla_everyday @dtlaweekly @cmjosehuizar

The classic films aren’t the only thing being showcased — the opportunity to see some of LA’s most iconic venues is alone worth the ticket price. We’re fortunate enough to have two of these historic gems here in the Fashion District — Orpheum Theatre and Theatre at Ace Hotel.

3. A Night Out on the Town


You wouldn’t go to a show like this without making it a “thing”, would you? While it’s not exactly a “night out on Broadway”…it certainly is a night out, so why not layer in the food a drink before and after? This is the perfect opportunity for you to try a downtown restaurant you’ve had on your list for a while, or revisit that place you liked that one time. A few faves that are just a quick 3-5 minute walk from both the Orpheum and Theatre at Ace Hotel are Best Girl, Terroni, and Zinque.

4. All the Extras


In addition to the amazing venues and classic films, the experience might include some yummy extras like free Q&A sessions about the theatre follow the screenings, behind the scenes tours with all the historical and architectural info you’d ever want, and lobby after parties with drinks, music, pub trivia and more.
