Babylon Baroque in Ruin, the Los Angeles Theatre
Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of catching the screwball flick, “How To Succeed In Business Without Even Trying”, presented by the Los Angeles Conservancy as part of their Last Remaining Seats film series;classic films screened in historic film-Vaudeville palaces. I was thrilled to visit the Los Angeles Theatre for a second time, a rare treat.
615 South Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90014
As is the case with all of these palaces, the Los angeles is a smoldering pile of beauty.The voluptuous grandeur weighed down by decades of dust, neglect, and fire. Shocking, yet beautiful, romantic, heartbreaking, uplifting.
I snapped away on my phone, rather terrible quality, but a slice of what you have in store if you take part in this admirable series of films and their venerable venues. Please consider joining the Los Angeles Conservancy at http://www.laconservancy.org. A worthy institution.
