“`For the first time since 1998, Los Angeles Conservancy will host a Last Remaining Seats screening at downtown’s State Theatre! This film palace has a rich history, and is filled with beautiful features. It recently served as a church, which is common for historic theaters.

“`The scheduled screening is Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, a 1939 classic that stars James Stewart and Jean Arthur. The central theme of this motion picture is the nature of political corruption and graft that takes place in the senate. Many of the character actors featured in my Forgotten Hollywood book series appear in the ageless classic, such as Claude Rains, Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell, Jack Carson, and in my upcoming release, Edward Arnold.

“`A free Q&A session about the theatre will follow the screening. Learn more about the history and architecture. They will also have an after-party at iconic Cliftons. You can enjoy the event on Saturday, June 2nd at 8p.

“`Los Angeles Conservancy is the nonprofit member organization that works through education and advocacy to recognize, revitalize, and preserve the historic architectural and cultural resources of Los Angeles County. A private, membership nonprofit, the Conservancy began as part of a drive to prevent demolition of the  Los Angeles Public Library in 1978.
