Last Remaining Seats: "How To Succeed..." and Remaining Tickets

I have many signals of summer - the things that make my summer feel complete. It's not just the Los Angeles weather that shifts from some-what warm to warmer to hot! It's not just how much more enjoyable the paletas and fruit from street vendors are with that weather, or the summer strolls through Farmers Markets enjoying aguas frescas, or the beach sand and sun with the crashing of the ocean waves. Summer doesn't seem quite complete without Last Remaining Seats.

LA Conservancy's series of classic movies with historic movie palaces kicked off on May 26th and I was there to enjoy "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" at the Los Angeles Theatre.  The seats were packed and since I hadn't gotten there early enough (and had to soak in the beautiful theatre and show Julie the bathroom...because it was next to the ballroom), I sat on the third floor balcony.  However, I don't think there is a bad seat in that beautiful historic movie palace.

The evening opened with a treat - the film's Robert Morse and Michele Lee as guests, in conversation with Robert Morse's Mad Men producer Matthew Weiner who also introduced the event.  After some hilarious banter, the film began and made me wish we would all break out in song and dance in the office-environment.

There's still tickets available for the last two shows of the series - Flor Silveste (Wild Flower) at the Million Dollar Theatre and Peter Pan (1924) at the Orpheum.  Check out for more information.
