Entertainment in Historic Venues

The L.A. Conservancy has me on its mailing list--which is not a complaint at all. Here are some of the concerts and movies that will take place in historic venues throughout the city:

  • The Tallis Scholars will be at Vibiana's (pictured at right) on Friday, March 26, presenting a "Greatest Hits" concert of Renaissance composer Tom├ís Luis de Victoria. Tickets start at $35, and you can order them here.

  • The Last Remaining Seats--for the 25th year--will show classic movies in classic theaters from May 25 through June 29. The first movie is Rear Window with Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart at the Orpheum Theater. Leonard Maltin will host the evening, and there'll be a preshow performance on the original Mighty Wurlitzer organ by Robert York. The movie starts at 8 pm; get more information here.

  • Other movies/theaters in June include Captain Blood, the original King Kong (whatever happened to Fay Wray?) and Sunset Boulevard.  Oh, and a Harold Lloyd silent comedy, Safety Last. Tickets are $16 if pre-ordered.
