The L.A. Conservancy is bringing its classic film screening series, Last Remaining Seats, back for its 29th season, with a selection of six iconic films screened at unique vintage movie theaters in downtown Los Angeles.
All screenings will occur over an 18-day stretch this coming June, starting off with Psycho to be shown at the Million Dollar Theater on June 10.
Of course my personal favorite? Raiders of the Lost Ark at the Ace Hotel on June 27.
Tickets are available for $20 per show at the Conservancy website.
