The elegant theater, which opened in 1926, is one of the classic movie palaces on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles. After a long restoration, the historic venue has returned to its vintage appearance, with a Beaux Arts facade and an in-house Wurlitzer organ. Such performers as the Marx Brothers, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Stevie Wonder have appeared on its stage, and in more recent years it's hosted musicians like Natalie Merchant, Jackson Browne and Keane and television programs like America's Got Talent. And, in keeping with its storied past, the Orpheum still screens all manner of classic movies, including the L.A. Conservancy's beloved Last Remaining Seats series. No matter who's performing at the Orpheum, the venue itself is the star, with a balcony looking down over a large lobby, which is festooned with ornate lamp sculptures, vintage Deco couches and lavishly patterned carpets. All ages. Street parking.

At the annual film series Last Remaining Seats, what's on the screen isn't necessarily as fascinating as what's around the screen. That's not to say that the movies presented by the L.A. Conservancy aren't great; the 2012 summer's season included classics like Paper Moon, Tootsie, The Big Sleep and The Wizard of Oz. But what makes the series so special is where the films are shown, mainly at the beautifully restored, grand old theaters downtown along Broadway. The Million Dollar Theatre,... More »

Event Review: Tori Amos
Tori dazzled the crowd as usual with her off the charts vocals. One thing that i was disappointed in was that the band was absent. She brought along a quartet that tried to fill in for drums, guitar, and electric bass. They did as much as they could, and actually were quite good, but the lack of impact from drums left a small void in my opinion. Tori is still a show to never miss and we will be there again tomorrow night! Another note, getting in and out was very easy and parking was only $4.. Sweet. And the orpheum was absolutely gorgeous.
