Last Remaining Seats (LRS) is the Los Angeles Conservancy's annual series of classic films and live entertainment in historic theatres. What started in 1987 as a way to draw attention to L.A.'s historic theatres is now a popular summer tradition.

The 2018 series will take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, June 2-23 at the historic theatres of Broadway in Downtown L.A. and at San Gabriel Mission Playhouse for the first time.

Advance tickets are $18 each for Conservancy members and $22 each for the general public. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door for $22 each on the night of the event.

You can buy up to four tickets per screening at the member price and unlimited tickets at the non-member price. Many shows sell out before the series opens, so buying advance tickets is highly recommended.

All performances are general seating, except for a limited number of seats reserved for LRS sponsors and for Los Angeles Conservancy Cornerstone members (Granite levels and above).

Doors open one hour before the show starts. Typically, the doors open at 1 p.m. for 2 p.m. matinees and at 7 p.m. for 8 p.m. screenings. The program usually lasts between two to three hours.

LRS hosts special events to enhance your screening experience, such as Q&A sessions, backstage tours, and pub trivia on select Saturday nights.
