Last Remaining Seats, the Los Angeles Conservancy’s annual, weeks-long event featuring classic film screenings in some of Los Angeles’ most beautiful vintage movie palaces, has released its 2018 schedule.
This year marks the first time Last Remaining Seats visits the San Gabriel Valley when the stunning San Gabriel Mission Playhouse hosts a film (the beloved tearjerker The Joy Luck Club). Other 2018 highlights include Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic The Birds and Buster Keaton’s silent comedy Steamboat Bill, Jr., with live accompaniment on the Orpheum’s Mighty Wurlitzer organ. The complete schedule is below:
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)
Saturday, June 2, 8 p.m., State Theatre, Downtown L.A.
Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985)
Saturday, June 9, 8 p.m., Million Dollar Theatre, Downtown L.A.
In the Heat of the Night (1967)

Tickets are $22 for each individual screening and can be purchased via the link below.
These lavish, luxurious theaters were built between 1911 and 1931. Other than the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, they’re all located on Broadway in Downtown L.A., the thoroughfare that was the place to go see a movie in Los Angeles until 1922, when Sid Grauman finally opened Hollywood’s first movie palace, the Egyptian Theatre. Providing screenings of timeless films in gorgeous settings, this film series is truly a feast for the eyes.
